Saints added some grit to lineup of two-time defending BCIHL champs

first_imgThe Selkirk Saints added some grit to the lineup for the 2014/15 B.C. Intercollegiate Hockey League season.The Saints announced a playing commitment from forward Tyler Kerner of Taber, Alta., to attend Selkirk College.”Tyler is a hard-working, physical winger who plays the game with lots of energy and competes hard,” head coach Jeff Dubois of the two-time defending BCIHL Champion Saints said. “He really fits the profile of the type of player we were looking to add to what is shaping up as a very skilled group. We see Tyler being a guy who sets a physical tone for us and who makes himself and his line difficult to play against, particularly versus top players on other teams.”Kerner is a 5-foot-11, 205 pound winger who spent the last three seasons in the Alberta Junior Hockey League playing with the Lloydminster Bobcats, Drumheller Dragons and Olds Grizzlys.He split the 2013/14 campaign between Drumheller and Olds, where he scored once while adding nine assists and 85 penalty minutes in 36 regular season and playoff games.Over the course of his Junior A career, Kerner scored nine goals and totaled 32 points and 255 penalty minutes in 112 AJHL games. “I’m very excited to start my post-secondary career with the Saints and join a winning organization,” said Kerner, who describes himself as playing a physical, simple, role game while taking pride in taking care of his own zone first.”I think of myself as a leader who is willing to do whatever it takes to win. I work very well beneath the crease protecting the puck while trying to find players to set up in the offensive zone.” Kerner plans to enter Selkirk’s Business Administration program.”I’m looking forward to moving to the community of Castlegar, as it reminds me of the town I was raised in,” Kerner explains.”The small classes are also a huge benefit, knowing that there will be more attention to help me get the most out of my schooling. My academic goal this year will be to achieve a GPA of 3.5 or higher. On the ice, I want to develop my game while helping my team capture a third straight BCIHL championship.” Kerner is the Saints’ ninth commitment for the 2014/15 season, joining forwards Ryan Edwards (Beaver Valley, KIJHL), Jamie Vlanich (Nelson Leafs, KIJHL), Alex Milligan (Peninsula Panthers, VIJHL), Matt Martin (Ontario Avalanche, WSHL) and Connor Beauchemin (Castlegar Rebels, KIJHL), as well as defencemen Curtis Toneff (Campbell River Storm, VIJHL) and Danny Vlanich (Surrey Eagles, BCHL), and goaltender Steven Glass (Nipawin Hawks, SJHL).last_img read more

Greenwood hosts second successful rugby bash

first_imgGreenwood was full of Rugby players again last weekend for the Boundary Bash Social 10s Rugby Tournament. This is the second year they have hosted this tournament and this year they were larger by just one team.Organizer and Jewel Lake resident Oliver Glaser said the tournament was a success, particularly in regards to the social aspect.Everyone had fun and the City of Greenwood opened up O’Hairi Park as a campsite for the rugby players, he said.This year’s teams included the East Vancouver Scribes, who technically hosted the event because Glaser still plays on their team, the Trail Colonials, the Grand Forks Wanderers, the Ridge Meadow Bruins (Maple Ridge) and the Nelson Grizzlies.The Grizzlies easily won the tournament because they won all their games and had the most ‘tries’ – goal attempts. There was only one woman’s team, which came from Ridge Meadows. The men’s teams played a few games with them and some of the woman joined the men’s teams and played along with them.“One woman player on the Grizzlies,” said Glaser, noting that she played exceptionally well. “She was fit and toned and ran hard. She ran really good lines.”The Trail Colonials were awarded the most social team and Bryan Louzon was awarded the most social player.Glaser said the games were all really good and that the level of play was strong this year. The players followed the rules and there was no kicking or fighting.Ingram Creek Saddlery donated a custom-made leather ball for the winning team again this year. Glaser said this makes them stand out from other tournaments.“It’s a really special thing,” he said.  New to the tournament this year was a kids touch game and a concession stand. They had about 100 people as spectators and everyone seemed to have a good time, said Glaser.The only real complaint was about the noise from the music at the campsite at night. Glaser said he hadn’t considered how much the noise would carry and that he would consider a noise curfew the next year.Glaser is hoping to host the event this year but says it depends on what the numbers look like after they have done their calculations. He is happy if they are just able to break even because it’s all about having fun, but if the host team has lost a lot of money they may not host it again next year.last_img read more

He retired from LAPD as a Detective Sergeant and he pays attention and follows up on things in a very professional manner.“Although he’s leaving us to spend more time with his family, we will have him here for the Breeders’ Cup in November and we hope to have him next year on big days, like the Santa Anita Derby and the Big ‘Cap.“Given the fact that he’s met so many owners, trainers and jockeys over the years, I’d be surprised if we didn’t see him every now again as a fan.

Trainer Ron Ellis, for one, says there is a benefit in not shipping and running on a track just a hundred yards away in your own back yard.“I think it’s similar to a football team that doesn’t have to play on the road,” said Ellis, who hopes to have his crack sprinter, Masochistic, ready for either the Dirt Mile or the Sprint.“While they’re not necessarily creatures of habit, athletes and horses seem more comfortable in familiar surroundings. The home teams don’t have to travel, nor do horses based at Santa Anita, and that can reduce intangibles such as stress, which doesn’t help.”Bob Baffert, whose horses have flown worldwide, says it makes no never mind to him and his stock.“It’s more of an economic advantage than anything,” said the Hall of Fame trainer who has made Santa Anita his base of operations for more than two decades. “You don’t have to spend any extra money shipping because the horses are here.“There might be a horse or two that wouldn’t have shipped well, but otherwise, I don’t think it’s a big deal. If you have good horses, they’ll come through. All my horses ship well. I ship a lot and they’re used to it. My success rate is pretty high.” Martin Garcia811361416%41%$712,434 Peter Miller591015717%54%$485,955 Mike Puype54117620%44%$360,850 John Sadler65971414%46%$750,278 Fernando Perez10113111113%35%$557,713 Jerry Hollendorfer771581519%49%$1,050,183 SMITH RETURNS FOLLOWING SUBURBAN WIN AT BELMONT PARK            Mike Smith, who joined fellow Hall of Famer Gary Stevens for a special Beholder/Songbird poster signing prior to Sunday’s races, was still “feeling it” following his big win aboard Effinex in Saturday’s Grade I, mile and a quarter Suburban Handicap yesterday at Belmont Park.“When he puts it all together, he’s a serious horse. He can run with the best of the best,” said Smith of the Jimmy Jerkins trainee who is pointing to an eventual engagement in the $6 million Breeders’ Cup Classic at Santa Anita on Nov. 5. “He can beat ’em when he puts his mind to it; he’s just not always in a stable frame of mind (jokingly).”Yesterday he was on and ran brilliant . . . Belmont’s a funny track. The size of the track, the turns . . . You can pull the trigger way too soon there and it can play tricks on you . . . but I’ve been there since the ’80s, so it helps to know it.
