Packers Plan Payback on Pontiac

Categories:

The Pontiac Juniors are back at home tonight to host Arnprior as the Packers look to pay back ShawVegas for the near shut-out they suffered at the hands of the Pontiacs the last time both teams met on November 3rd.  Mathew Labrosse set the tone for the game early at 1:51 mark with Shawville’s first goal with help from Coovi-Sirois and Vezina, as the Pontiacs stopped any attempt by Arnprior to get real-estate on the scoreboard for the entire first period.

Playing a very strong game, Liam Poirier started off the second period in the tradition set by Labrosse in the first by slamming home the biscuit special-delivery making the score 2-0 for Shawville just 2:40 into the start of the 2nd period.  The Packers got the advantage when Pontiacs Julian Dumont was tossed into the sin bin after...

Jets Roll Out Matinée Gong Show in Metcalfe

There’s no denying that the Shawville Pontiacs are a hard working team.  Last week’s grueling schedule saw “ShawVegas” travel to West Ottawa to take on the Golden Knights, followed by a home game crowd-pleaser in the Shaw when the Pontiacs delivered a decisive victory against the Stittsville Royals, on the eve of Sunday afternoon’s appearance in Metcalfe to take on the Jets.

Playing all that hockey in between running equipment drives and fundraisers means the Pontiacs are a busy organization.  Last Fridays “Fill the Rink for Brent” fundraiser hosted in Perth by the Blue Wings brought in $18,111, which was matched dollar for dollar by the Wings.  Add to that another $12,500 from website donations and the total for the night was an impressive $48,722!

La Commission scolaire des Portages-de-l'Outaouais (CSPO) donne «un mandat clair» à son administration pour négocier la construction d'un bâtiment pouvant accueillir joueurs de soccer, de football et de rugby derrière l'école secondaire Grande-Rivière.

Alors que l'Association régionale de soccer de l'Outaouais (ARSO) doit refuser des inscriptions dans le secteur Aylmer en raison du manque de surface de jeu, la CSPO prévoit poursuivre les négociations déjà entamées pour concrétiser ce projet de terrain multisport...

Stittsville Royals take lesson from Shawville Pontiacs

Undaunted by Thursdays upset in Ottawa, the Pontiacs left their dressing room amid a trail of empty Wheaties boxes and proceeded to open a can of something very different on the Royals during Stittsville’s 1st period Goalie Parade last night at the Shawville Arena.

Just 54 seconds shy of the 4 minute mark on the game clock Shawville's Alexandre Larocque with assists from Liam Poirier and Julian Dumont put the Pontiacs first marker on the scoreboard.  Only 4 shots later in 3 short minutes Larocque, again assisted by Poirier, delivered the biscuit past Stittsville’s sieve giving Shawville a 2-all lead.

It didn’t take much longer until Gilmour Maurice...

The Pontiacs are returning home tonight to face off against the Stittsville Royals in Shawville at 8pm after coming away from a 5-3 upset against the Golden Knights last night at the Barbara Ann Scott Arena in Ottawa.

Ottawa West took an early lead ten seconds into the game in what quickly became a back and forth battle.  Shawville came back when Danick Genest drove home a rebound from Matt Labrosse, but the Knights quickly retook the lead adding 2 goals to finish off the 1st period up 3-1 over the Pontiacs.

The 2nd period continued unchanged until Matt Labrosse,...

The Grace of Stones: Dancing on a Rock Face in Luskville, Quebec

Categories: 

Our group consists of six rock climbers, ranging in skill from novices to experienced lead climbers.  We are located some 30km northwest of Ottawa, in an area called Luskville. It is a community of a few dwellings, a gas station and a shabby mini-mall, all dispersed along Highway 148 amidst grassy fields and rolling hills of the Ottawa valley.  Luskville is well-known among Ottawa’s climbers.  The area houses a few fine climbing spots frequented by sport and lead climbers as well as free soloists and occasional hikers. Just like obscure labels of Luskville’s climbing routes– “Death by Maboola,” “Ethics Police” or “Your Wife” – the names of climbing sections are somewhat baffling, at times explicable, and often an inside joke.  Today, we are headed to the “Eastern Block” and “DownUnder.”

The Legend of "The Shawville Express"

Categories: 

I was born in Ottawa in 1925, the eldest child of Maye Horner and Frank Finnigan, both then aged twenty-four. The year before, my father, known then throughout the Ottawa Valley hockey circuit and later throughout the hockey world as "The Shawville Express," had signed his first National Hockey League contract for $1,800 per season with the Ottawa Senators. Bonuses from Frank Ahearn, owner of the Senators, brought my father's salary for that first year up to $3,400...
