Mar 4 - One of the best ever ... Just a few words to describe the seven period marathon deciding game of the Lasalle / St Charles boys hockey series played last night (and this morning) at Countryside Arena. Matt Golanski finally broke the 3-3 deadlock at the 10:30 mark of the fourth overtime period to lead the Lancers to their second consecutive city title. Lancer netminder Tyler Maslakewycz was named the MVP of the playoffs and was solid throughout the final series for Lasalle.

Mar 3 - The Lasalle Lancers have forced a fifth and deciding game in their best of five SDSSAA senior boys hockey division I series against St Charles College, edging their New Sudbury rival by a final score of 1-0 in front of a capacity crowd at Carmichael Arena earlier this evening. The win keeps Lancer hopes of back-to-back playoff titles alive, while for the Cards, a win tommorrow night would represent their second Robert Brown Cup in the past three years..

The only goal of the game, despite several chances for both sides, was scored by Lancer captain Matt Bouchard, his second of the series, unassisted. The Lancers held in the edge in shots, managing 29 on Cards' netminder T.J. Pugliese, while the Cards' directed 21 shots on Lasalle tender Tyler Maslakewycz. Both goaltenders were outstanding in key moments during the game.

The result sets the scene for the fifth and final game of the series, which will be played Sunday, March 4th at the Countryside Sports Complex. Start time is 9pm.

Mar 3 - It was a wild time on the Island on Saturday, with the Lively Hawks managing the coveted sweep by virtue of a double overtime win over the Manitoulin Mustangs thereby hauling in the SDSSAA boys hockey division II banner. Further game details were not known at time of writing. Also this evening, the individual award winners from division II play were recognized in a special ceremony.

The winning candidates were as follows:
Most Sportsmanlike Player - Robert King (Lo-Ellen Park)
Best Defenceman - Mike Keller (St Benedict)
Most Valuable Player - Cody Robson (Lively)
Best Goaltender - Lyle Baibomsai (Espanola)
Top Scorer - Cody Robson (Lively)
Top Goaltenders (by average) - Mitchell Orford and Jamie Delange (Manitoulin)

Feb 27 - Earlier today at the McClelland Arena, the L'Horizon Aigles withstood a late game rally from the Marymount Regals to lay claim to their fourth division II girls hockey playoff title in six years.

The Aigles, who won the first game of the series on Monday 4-0, held a 2-0 advantage thanks to goals from Micheline Frappier and Christine Venne until 3:34 remaining in the game. Then, the Regals' Cara Kirkwood breathed new life by scoring Marymount's first goal of the series. With just seconds remaining, Regals' Johanna Chalupiak just missed the far side of the net on an excellent chance to force overtime, but it was not to be.

For the Aigles, it was just the lift needed to bolster chances at the Franco Ontarien Tournament, which starts Thursday in Hearst.

Feb 27 - For the second time in four years, Collège Notre-Dame has claimed the girls hockey Division I playoff championship. The Als' posted their second consecutive 2-0 victory over a plucky Lively Hawks team earlier this afternoon, a team that finished second to the Alouettes during the regular season.

Despite another outstanding performance from Hawks' netminder Lindsey Smith, the Als' consistently pressured the Hawks throughout the game, with goals scored by Valérie Valiquette, her second of the series, and Josée Belanger.

For their part, the never-say-die Hawks were able to accomplish what no other team had done up to this point in SDSSAA play: hold the Als' potent offence to less than four goals in two consecutive games. Notre-Dame averaged just over seven goals per game during the regular season.

The other members of the Alouettes include: Natalie Vincent, Jacklyn Upchan, Karly Dudar, Danielle Rancourt, Mélissa Bertrand, Mélissa Camirand, Joelle Loiselle, Danyka Gagnon, Sophie Fortin, Manon Davis, Vanessa Jacques and Stéphanie Bonin. The team is coached by Jean-Claude Davis, Lise Davis, Norm Valiquette, Bruno Rancourt and Michèle Albert.

The Als' now advance to the NOSSA girls hockey A/AA championship game, hosted at Memorial Gardens in North Bay next Wednesday. Game time is 7pm.

A win there would advance them to the OFSAA Championship in Belleville, an event at which they won a silver medal last year.

Nov 25 - The Lively Hawks' dream season came to end in Woodbridge earlier today, finishing the round robin portion of the OFSAA Boys "A" Championship with a 2-2 record. The Hawks were able to manage straight sets wins over U of T Schools and Harrow, but dropped straight set losses to L'Escale and Durham Christian.

The record was good enough for a three way tie with Durham Christian and Harrow for second place in their pool, but by virtue of a tie breaker Lively was rendered third and so did not manage to advance to the championship side of the draw.

Gingell, who coached three major sports in his 35 year history with Sudbury High School including track & field, basketball and football, coached the NOSSA champion Sudbury High School in 1959 and was a tireless advocate of high school football throughout his career.

A total of thirty players were selected to the all-star team, which was based on a new voting procedure implemented by the league's coaches this year.

The Chris Bartolucci Offensive Player of the Year Award was declared a three-way tie, including Kyle Cooper of Lo-Ellen Park SS, Andrew Kirkwood of St Benedict CSS and Mike Switzer of Confederation SS.

On the other side of the ball, the Gary Ricker Defensive Player of the Year Award was won by John Mikus of St Benedict CSS.

And finally the Sid Forster Memorial Award, symbolic of the league's most valuable player, was won by Dustin Crowder (above, with coach Stewart Moggy) of Sudbury Secondary School.

Sept 25 - And what a wild finish it was, with a fourth playoff hole needed to break a tie for first place on the boys' side of the draw. After eighteen holes had been played, defending champion Scott Whalen of St Charles College and Brandon Petrenko of Lively DSS found themselves deadlocked at 71. The pair began a sudden death playoff on hole 10, but neither that hole, nor 11 or 12, solved the issue. Finally, at hole 13, Whalen prevailed to become the seventh male golfer since 1969 to record at least two consecutive titles. On the strength of Whalen's performance, St Charles managed the team title, their third in five years. Lasalle, Lively and Notre-Dame rounded out the top four on the boys side of the draw.

In girls' competition, Christie Sitko of Lively DSS ran away with a ten shot victory over closest rival Rebecca Fabiilli of St Charles. Sitko's final score of 84 was one of the best marks ever in girls competition, with the last 84 recorded back in 1994. Lively DSS placed first overall in girls team competition, followed by Notre-Dame and Marymount Academy.

Aug 31 - The SDSSAA Senior Football sport committee met last night to hammer out a 2006 schedule and smooth out some last minute organizational details. The league will kick-off with its annual North-South Classic on September 8th, a series of controlled scrimmages to allow the players to test themselves in a game situation. Six of the eight teams in the league have opted in for the Classic which will begin at 4pm at Queen's Athletic Field. League play opens the following Wednesday, September 13th, as the St Charles Cardinals visits the Bears at St Benedict. Start time: 4:30pm.

One of the items reviewed at the meeting was the date of the OFSAA Northern Bowl game, currently scheduled for December 7th in Toronto. All coaches agreed that this date was far too late in the year, some three weeks after the NOSSA final and creating conflicts with winter sports. Convener Paul Schutt is endeavouring to make alternate arrangements for a game in mid-November.
