Heat, humidity forces high school sports postponements

sean Sep 27, 2017 - 1:02pm

Today's high school sports events have been postponed due to the heat warning that continues for our area.

The SD&G high school tennis championships were to be contested today in Cornwall. The matches will instead be played Oct. 3.

Speaking for the SDGAA, Jamie Carr explains, "We are concerned about the safety of our students as the temperature is expected to be close to 40 with humidity. Next week looks much better. Sorry for the inconvenience I know this causes but the safety of our athletes is the number one concern."

The other impacted event is the kickoff to the junior football six-on-six season. It was to take place at Glengarry DHS in Alexandria.

The convenor has revised the schedule to move these games to Monday, Oct. 16. The Gaels will instead kick off their season on Oct. 4 in Carleton Place.

Sheppard wins the Super DIRTcar Big Block Series to cap off 2017  at Cornwall Motor Speedway

sean Sep 18, 2017 - 7:05pm

The Big Blocks visited the Cornwall Motor Speedway last Sunday, capping off the 2017 racing season for the area's track. 

Tim O’Brien and Keith Flach led the field of 30 cars to the green, when Steve Bernard slowed the group on the initial lap and yellow lights were out. Flach took first as racing continued, with Peter Britten and O’Brien colliding on lap 7.

Flach remained in front, with Larry Wight moving up to second and O’Brien bringing another caution on lap 21. Wight was quick on the restart to seize the lead over Flach on lap 25, as Billy Decker followed suit two laps later. Wight had Decker as a dancing partner, as Decker then grabbed the first position, while Matt Sheppard moved up to third.

Decker pulled away from the field as Wight, Sheppard, Flach, and Alexandria's Chris Raabe were the top 5 when the race reached the halfway point.

The leaders got into heavy traffic with 60 laps in the books. Cornwall Speedway track champion Chris Raabe slowed, and caution was out on lap 72. Decker remained the top man, however, as the battle continued for second spot. Sheppard was able to pass Wight for the position on lap 81 and set his sights on Decker. Lap traffic helped Sheppard, as he closed in on Decker with 10 laps to go. Sheppard used the inside lane and surprised the leader on lap 92. The drivers challenged each other the rest of the way, but Sheppard stayed in front to garner win #10 on the tour in 2017.

The junior 'A' Colts scored three unanswered goals en route to a 5-3 home-ice victory over the Navan Grads on Thursday night. 

Navan led 2-0 and then 3-2 late in the second period.

Poirier added two assists. Keegan Mulhearn (3) scored twice, with Justin McRae (2) also scoring. Evan Bidenti counted a pair of helpers.

The Grads outshot the Colts 39-38, with Liam Lascelle making 36 saves for the victory. The Colts improve to 3-3-0-0 (6 points) on the CCHL season.

The county's own Keegan Mulhearn earned Hardest Working Player of the Game honours.

Three Stars were first Keegan Mulhearn (COR), second David Poirier (COR), and third Keenan Reynolds (NAV).

Cornwall's next contest is slated for Sunday afternoon against the Canadians in Carleton Place. Game time is 3 pm.
