3: Thoughts of a Winner Although I am only one out of a million I am somebody, and that makes me as good as the next person. There is nothing in this life I cannot do. There is no goal I cannot tackle and have success! If I feel deep down inside that something is important to me, then I can do it. If my mind can conceive it, and my head can believe it, then I know I can achieve it. No longer will I drift through life feeling sorry for myself, because self-pity is the seed of destruction. I will search for a goal, and with enough hard work, total commitment, determination, dedication and sacrifice, I know I will reach it. I know there will be many times when it will seem that all the odds are against me, and I will have to fight one battle after another--but I will not give up!!!

26: Dear Coach: Tomorrow morning my child starts hockey. He's going to step out on the ice and his great adventure that will probably include joys and disappointments begins. So I wish you would take him by his young hand and teach him the things he will have to know. Teach him to respect the referee and that his judgment is final. Teach him to play as a team and never to be selfish. Teach him never to blame his goaltender when a goal is scored against him, because five mistakes were made before the puck got to the goalie. Teach him that winning is not everything, but trying to win is. Teach him it is far more honorable to lose than it is to cheat. Teach him to be a competitor. Teach him to close his ears to the howling mob and to stand up for himself if he thinks he is right. Teach him gently, but don't coddle him, because only the test of fire makes fine steel. This is a big order, Coach, and I place my son in your hands. See what you can do for him. He is such a great kid. -A Parent

36: Playoffs | In the nail biting third game of the Lower St. Lawrence Minor Hockey League four point Championship series, the B1 Colts were edged 2-1 by the Alexandria Glens. The win gave the Glens the series, four points to two. The Colts finished second in the eight team LSLMHL. In the opener of the series at the Glengarry Sports Palace, the Colts defeated the Glens 2-1. No team was able to beat the Glens in the regular season nor playoffs until this game. The Glens evened up the series 1-1 in Game 2 at the Benson Center, with a 6-0 win. The Glens scored 3 unanswered goals in the first 2 periods and three in the third, including 2 empty-netters. The jockeying back and forth between the 2 teams ended in Game 3, at the Glengarry Sports Palace, when the Colts ran out of time and fell 2-1.
37: The Car Ride Home | Once long ago a young hockey player was playing Novice Hockey. He always had fun at the rink with all his hockey friends. Playing the game was simple. Mom or Dad packed his bag or tied his skates. Whenever he made a proper play, scored a goal or his team won the game, he felt so good. It was even laughable when mistakes were made. The car ride home was so much fun. Then on came Atom and Pee-Wee and things started to change for this young hockey player. People appeared more unsettled because of his mistakes. No one tied his skates anymore. Not everyone appeared to be happy when he scored a goal. The car ride home seemed to be a job or a chore, and not so much fun anymore. Then came Bantam and Midget and some of his hockey friends started leaving the game. The game seemed to become a war and not a game anymore. The car ride home seemed to last forever and no one seemed to talk. This young man started thinking back to Novice Hockey and a smile came to his face on how much fun it once was. So on your travels this weekend enjoy your hockey experience, because Midget is only 5-6 years away and Novice Hockey will be just a recollection. By A Hockey Fan Ron Belmore
38: A Word From Coach Stan | Negative situations exist only whenever people or parties attempt to create controversy, drama or conflict. As a team, we chose to look beyond such nonsense and focus our energy on creating a positive environment for our kids. As a result, our Novice hockey team experienced plenty of fun and success on and off the ice. The key to a successful hockey team is providing knowledge, guidance and motivation from the coaching staff to its players in a fun setting. In return, players give back by focusing on the tasks at hand, developing a good work ethic, and providing a selfless commitment to the team. Winning hockey games is merely an outcome and losing games is not really losing, but learning. However, I believe the kids have experienced much more than that this season. They have established friendships that will last a lifetime. We as parents should be very proud of their achievements. At this time, I'd like to commend and thank all the players and parents for trusting the coaching staff, and to my coaching staff for volunteering their time to nurture the kids' hockey development. Furthermore, this hockey season would not have been such a success without the generosity of our corporate sponsors. On behalf of the players, parents and coaching staff, I'd like to sincerely thank Black & McDonald Ltd., Dundas Power Line Ltd., East Side Marios and Fortran Traffic Systems Ltd., for helping out this extraordinary group of kids. Yours in Hockey, Stan
