1. Yesterday within the cozy confines of the Elmvale Arena, your EDHS Boy’s Hockey Team battled the Spartans of Stayner for the SCAA Championship. With a depleted lineup, and facing less than adequate officiating, the troops showed unbelievable character and resiliency as they skated to a 3-0 victory and will play Patrick Fogarty of Orillia. “Doff” earned another shutout and goal scorers were Sweeney, McLaughlin and Owen. Coaches Neily and Allen are extremely proud of this group that also includes: Nevin, Tye, Troy, Evan, Zach, Braedan, Fay, Flury, Colby, Colin, Thomas, O’Neill and Greg. The team would also like to congratulate our volleyball sisters on their SCAA victory yesterday. Spread the playoff hockey gospel according to Bill Barilko.

1. Yesterday in the cool, but cozy confines of the Elmvale Arena, The Boy’s Eagles Hockey Team hosted MSS in a SCAA semi-final match-up. The home team got off to a blazing start but were unable to cash in on multiple chances. This continued throughout the remainder of the game and by the third period Elmvale had built up a convincing 5 – 0 lead. Unfortunately, the Eagles fell asleep at the wheel and left “Doff” all alone twice with mere minutes remaining resulting in a 5 – 2 final decision. Goal scorers were Man-o-the-Match, Evan, Troy, Matt, Nevin as well as Fay, who scored his first career high school goal and played well at center. The team now awaits the winner of Stayner and Notty Pines to play for the SCAA crown. Spread the playoff hockey gospel according to Kris Kontos

4.  Yesterday at the cozy confines of the Elmvale Arena, your Eagle’s Boy’s Hockey squad battled rival Stayner for first place in the SCAA standings. Once again, The boys in black dominated play in the opening frame, but were unable to capitalize on several chances. It was their goal to win the second and third periods, which they did, as they skated to a decisive, 3 – 0 victory. “Doff” earned his second straight shutout and Derek O’Neill netted his first career high school goal. Man-o-the-match recipient Troy Bellisle was a constant thorn in the side of the opposition sniping the other two tallies. Congratulations should go out to all team members as they are only the second team in 12 years of EDHS hockey history to go undefeated in the regular season. Good luck on your exams fellas.

3.  Yesterday the boys and girls curling teams competed in the quarter and semi final competition at the Cookstown Curling Club. 
The girls team of Erica Racco – skip, Lindsey Tuck – vice, Linsay Maracle – 2nd, and Jen Ritchie – lead played their quarterfinal game against the highest seed Eastview team.  They continued to improve their plays with their draws and take-outs, and truly continue to play a better game.  Even though they lost to this team with years of experience, they enjoyed playing the game together as they continue to support and assist each other in mastering the game of curling!
The boys team of Josh Fiegehen – skip, Joel Stringer – vice, Aiden Ritchie – 2nd, and Landon McGinnis – lead, played their quarter final game against the second highest seed – the Bradford team.  The boys played their best game of the season starting the game by winning the first end, and playing a perfect 3rd end with 5 strategically placed rocks!  Their plays continued to improve with each minute of the game, resulting in a win of 10 – 9.  They proceeded to the semi-final game in the afternoon where they played the highest seed – the Midland team.  This game was a very close game from the first minute of play!  Amazing plays were made …. With the play of the competition delivered by Joel, skipped by Josh, and swept by Aiden and Landon!  This was a triple take-out that nobody will forget!  But, alas, our boys lost the game by a mere cm  (possibly a mm) in the 8th(last) end!  This is the way of curling!  Centimetres and millimetres make a difference!  Our boys lost their chance at advancing into the SCAA Championships in February by a mere centimetre (possibly a millimetre)!
 Please join Ms. Gimpelj and Mrs. Adams in congratulating both the boys and girls curling teams for their valiant participation in these competitions as they continue to master curling!

3.  Yesterday within the cozy confines of the Elmvale Arena, your Boy’s Eagle’s Hockey Team battled Nottawasaga Pines in the quest to remain unbeaten in league play. The boys in black once again got off to a good start by dominating play in the opposition’s zone, but were unable to capitalize on many chances and were undisciplined in their own zone. They rallied in the second and eventually cruised to a 5 – 3 victory, despite some questionable refereeing. Brody was steadfast between the pipes and goal scorers were Evan, Sweeney, Troy, Jason and man-of-the-match recipient, Zach McLean who was a constant fly in the ointment for the visiting team. The Eagles take to the ice once again next week in Midland. Spread the hockey gospel according to Bernie Federko.

4.  Yesterday our boys basketball teams were unfriendly hosts as they earned 2 hard fought victories against Nouvelle Alliance and Unity Christian in the Elmvale Shrinkatorium.

 
In the day's first match, the junior boys stormed out to an 18-8 lead at half time before allowing Nouvelle to make it close in the second half. Final score was Elmvale 36, Nouvelle 32.

 
Eagle hoopsters included Brendan Rebidoux, Brandon Wilson, Hunter Jamieson, Thomas Flury, Justin Gautreau and Merric Magno with a team high 15 points.
Great defence contributions by Drake, Jayden, Nick and Michael preserved the win.

 
In the senior game the Eagles walked away with a 62-36 win. Dominating in all aspects of the game, the boys demonstrated solid defence and teamwork on offence. Eagles finding the twine were Ryan, Tye, Curtis, Matt, Cruise, Kyle, Ben and Gerry while Owen and Jason chipped in with some great defensive steals throughout the game.

6.  Last night, the girls curling team of Erica Racco – skip,  Lindsey Tuck – vice,  Lynsay Maracle – 2nd,  and Jenn Ritchie – lead, played Le Caron on their home ice in Penetang.  The girls played another excellent game.  They continue to improve with this game being their best game to date! They started the game by winning the first end with 2 points, then they kept this experienced team to one or two point ends.  Even though they lost this game, the coach and the girls are very happy with how they continue to improve in every game.  They had great fun, then we enjoyed ½ price Wing night at Flynn's – as per Jenn's experienced recommendation! 

Teachers, please excuse the girls curling team today at 3 PM, as they play their game against Eastview on our home ice here in Elmvale. 

This serves as a reminder to the girl curlers to go direct to the curling rink at 3 PM.

This is a reminder to the boy curlers of their regular practice tonight at their regular time.

It’s “-22” and we are wishing that it was summer and we were watching the Blue Jays in the playoffs. Rather than jumping on the bandwagon in August, you can get an early start by coming to the Jay’s Trip on Thursday, May 5th as they battle The Texas Rangers. For the first time in trip history, it is also “T-Shirt giveaway night!” See Coaches Neily or Tipper for your permission form. Spread the Blue Jays gospel according to Tom Cheek.

Senior girls volleyball team is to meet right after the assembly in the gym.
