The Shawville Pontiacs are ready for another three-day weekend packed with back-to-back Junior ‘B’ hockey to add to last weekends blowouts over Almont and Renfrew as they get ready to host the Perth Blue Wings tonight at 8pm and the Stittsville Royals tomorrow at 1pm before hitting the road to meet the Almont Thunder for a Sunday matinee tilt.  After taking two of last weekend’s three games, the Pontiacs are looking to push further up in the EOJHL Valley division standings from their current spot in the fifth slot.

In last weekend’s matches, Vegas out-scored the visiting teams 15-9 with Mathew Labrosse adding four more goals to his season tally along with Guillaume Coovi-Sirois and Captain Julian Dumont each adding three, both hat tricks.  The 3-game set was book-ended with two barn-burners in which . . .

Rabid Timberwolves Barely Escape Pontiacs Trap

SHAWVILLE – Coming off a loss in January 12th’s Sunday matinee game against the Mustangs when Gatineau took advantage of the Pontiacs penalties in the second period to put a solid gap in the score, Vegas was back at home Friday night to host the Renfrew Timberwolves in a bid to add some points towards a playoff spot in the EOJHL season finals. 

In a wild and fast-paced game which had a little bit of everything, the Valley Division 1st place Timberwolves practically chewed through everything in site eking out a victory against a determined and tight Shawville as both teams traded possession of the puck while tearing up the ice.  Renfrew’s assortment of husky players managed to lean the play towards the Shawville end of the rink at times, but the Pontiacs gave as generously as they received, masterfully capitalizing on every opportunity presented to them.  The puck rarely got flung down the length of the ice as both teams kept tight control over the biscuit when they had it in their possession, with Vegas making some beautiful technical plays and exhibiting some impressive stick work.  Despite an excellent effort by the Pontiacs, the Timberwolves managed to leverage their net-rushing strategy in overtime to score the winning goal; scoring the last goal of the game pretty much they way they did the first.

Vegas Makes it 4 Wins in a Row Sending Arnprior Packing

The grinding got off to an early start when the Shawville Pontiacs hit the ice last night in Arnprior to face off against the Valley Division second place Packers at the Nick Smith Arena on a mission to keep their winning streak rolling.  The Pontiacs have been consistently out-shooting their opponents lately, and last nights game was no exception, making 38 shots to the Packers 36.  Vegas’ Great Barrier of Boisvert was in fine form and was a mere one save away from shutting Arnprior out.

While each period didn’t see a lot of action on the scoreboard, there was full drama on the ice as the Packers needed the win to close the gap between them and the division first place Renfrew Timberwolves.  Shawville on the other hand was intent on keeping its wins in the plus column and intended to cede no ground to Arnprior.  In response the Packers got pushy and . . .

GATINEAU — The Shawville Pontiacs made it three wins in a row last Friday night when they visited Buckingham in a rough back and forth high-stakes match that Vegas was determined to win.  The pugnacious Mustangs’ frenzied stampede wasn't enough to trample Shawville’s resolve for victory and despite a brief turn around in the middle of the third for Gatineau, the Pontiacs took back control in the last part of the period widening the gap in the score before herding the delirious Mustangs back into the stockade.

The Pontiacs got down to business early taking the game’s first point when Isak Savard...

 

Shawville Pontiacs End Year With Impressive Win

The Pontiac Juniors last game of 2013 was a picture perfect clean win for Vegas as Shawville won over the Valley Division third ranked Perth Blue Wings, retaking their perch in fourth place and sending the Stittsville Royals traveling gong-show back to their dutiful position as the cellar-dwellers of the division.

The last time both teams met was back in October in a bittersweet match that saw some fine hockey and a game so tightly contested – that after an overtime round was insufficient to crown a winner – a shoot-out was required to settle the score.  Shawville won that night with 2 shoot-out goals giving them the tie-breaking point, but it was also the night that Brett Nugent was hurt and many lives were forever changed.

Following the cancellation of their last two home games – courtesy of an avalanche of snow that walloped the region during the past couple of weeks – the Pontiac Juniors finally got the chance to hit the ice last night against the Royals in Stittsville.  Looking to climb back up in EOJHL standings, Vegas was in no mood to be denied a victory by the puffy Royals, in this the fourth time both teams butted heads in the 2013-14 season.

And butt heads is what they indeed did do.  You can really feel the love when these two teams get together...

The Pontiacs were unable to pull out a win despite working hard and out shooting Stittsville in Friday night’s back and fourth game at the Shawville Arena.  Building a two point lead by the middle of the second period, the Royals managed to hold the momentum in spite of being shut out of any power play opportunities by the hard-driving offensive game skated by Vegas.  Taking a hard penalty early in the third period,..

Back to Back Heartbreakers Last Weekend as Shawville Pontiacs Get Ready to Host Metcalfe Jets Tonight

PONTIAC – The Arnprior Packers came out strong last Friday night despite being pretty much matched shot for shot by the Pontiacs offense during the first period, as Arnprior managed to keep Shawville off the scoreboard, while counting 4 goals to end the 1st period 4-0 Packers.  Coming in to start off strong in the second, Mathew Labrosse got the Pontiacs on the board 1:11 in with a goal on an assist from Coovi-Sirois and Genest.  But another goal proved elusive as the Packers got physical resulting in Shawville’s first and fifth ranked scorers getting to join Arnprior’s mucker in the Bad Box, allowing the Packers to cash in on the power play.  Adding one more goal, the second period finished 6-1 for the visiting team.

The Pontiacs opened up the 3rd strong when Chris Bones on a set up from Dylan McNamara drove the puck in making it 6-2 only 57 seconds into the period.  Shortly afterwards the Labrosse/Genest Express, along with Wyatt Dumont, upped the ante on the power play with another goal bringing the score to 6-3.  Shawville continued to pour on the heat, dominating shots-on-goal throughout ...

Packers Plan Payback on Pontiac

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!

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...
