Pontiacs on the Warpath to Renfrew and Arnprior

Categories: 

After two incredible games last weekend where the Shawville Pontiacs pummeled the Almonte Thunder 11-to-4 before going down to the Ottawa West Golden Knights 2-to-1, Vegas will be on Renfrew home ice this Friday as they take on Valley division 1st place Timberwolves.

After slipping into 4th place in the standings, the Pontiacs spectacularly re-tooled and locked the pieces together and have had an impressive string of wins as they battle their way back to 3rd place.  Still two games behind from scheduling changes, Vegas is poised to close the gap as they play the missing contests and catch up.

The Timberwolves have had a good season thus far winning 16 of 22 games played, and shutting the Pontiacs out of any victories in the three previous games they’ve played against Renfrew.  But if there’s a team in the Valley division that can get the better of the Frew’s Crew, it’s Vegas.

Last year, Shawville earned its way into the playoffs and were pitted against the then 1st place Timberwolves in the first round of the EOJHL playoffs.  The Pontiacs were impressive as they took the series all the way to 6 games yanking the lease tight on Renfrew’s rabid Wolves, who were barely able to take the series from Shawville.  This season Vegas has continued to consistently fortify equally its offense, defense and goaltending, while achieving a fantastic synergy on the ice.  This is the team with the most heart!

And it makes all the difference as you watch them come together and execute breathtaking plays against a sometimes bewildered foe.  Sure to be the true dark horse of the 2014-2015 season, if you haven’t come to see this team you do not know what you are missing.

After taking on Renfrew this Friday at 8pm, Vegas continues on the road to Arnprior next Wednesday at 8pm to battle their main rivals at the moment: the Packers; current residents of the 3rd place perch in the Valley standings.

It's smooth and it's quiet with internet access, a 36" flat screen TV and reclining seats and it leaves Allumette Island at 10 minutes to 5 am every day. This is the new coach that runs Route 148 and you can be on it. This week, riders taking the Campeau Bus Line to the city were treated to a brand-new luxury coach, a demonstration vehicle in service before the permanent vehicle becomes available in about a weeks time.

Welcome back. While I wait for my file on the accident (December 4) to be retrieved by the MRC des Collines police, I placed calls to two local people, experts on the trucking of manure. For those who are coming in late to this, see my previous "slippery" stories archived here.

Slippery story: the update

On Monday December 4, a serious accident was caused by some kind of slippery fluid being splashed all over the highway in Luskville. Many people commented on the unexpectedly deep puddles, the effort it took to stay on the road and the horrible stink of it. There was so much, a snow plow was called in to strip it off the road. What was that stuff? Where did it come from? I managed to find someone to talk to from the MTQ within two days. But as yet, my attempts to get information about this incident from the MRC des Collines police have been unproductive.

Once more the Quyon Lions' Club Santa Claus Parade, held Saturday December 9, was a great success. Warmly-dressed families lined the streets to enjoy the decorated floats, horses and of course, St. Nick himself. As the Beach Barn is conspicuously absent this year, the parade's normal route was reversed, with participants gathering at the Ste. Marie's Catholic church parking lot and walking down the hill to the intersection with Clarendon. From there, the parade continued to the Onslow Elementary School gym where hot food and drinks were served as kids lined up to speak to Santa about a few important matters.

A serious single-vehicle roll-over was caused early morning on December 4 by a deep slick of some kind of waste matter spilled on Highway 148 near Parker Road in Luskville. Pools of what appeared to be septic waste or liquid animal manure were at least two or three meters in length and possibly 4 cm in depth, according to witnesses.
