OFSAA showcases high school athletes continuing to train in challenging times

The province’s high school sports governing body, OFSAA, recently released a video showcasing athletes and how they have continued to train during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Schools (and school sports) have been shuttered since mid-March, with a glimmer of hope for resumption of some sort this fall, according to the Ford government’s plan to reopen schools in September.

Here’s the OFSAA video…

For its part, OFSAA has also formed a Return To Sport Committee.

So you wanna be a sportscaster? (COVID-19 edition)

At some point, you have probably told yourself that you would be good as a sportscaster, calling plays live to inform and entertain listeners. But what is a sportscaster to do during the COVID-19 pandemic? One Brit has taken to plying his skill in a rather unique and offbeat way, as shown in this video.

What do you think? Could you do this, or do you know someone who could?

Perhaps you’d like to try your skills at describing car drivers in a busy parking lot or shoppers competing for space with their carts in newly configured stores. Or maybe a scenario involving your pets or children.

Feel free to share your creations with me.

Rebels win home finale Tuesday, to wrap up in Winchester tonight

The 2019-20 CCHL2 season for the Char-Lan Rebels will conclude tonight, when the team skates on the road against the playoff-bound Winchester Hawks. Game time at the Winchester Community Centre is set for 8:15 p.m.

Let’s finish with a win and look forward to a great 2020-21! #GoRebsGo #FinishStrong #FinishWithPride #FutureLooksBright

Char-Lan Rebels Hockey Club on Twitter

Char-Lan won its home-ice finale Tuesday night against the very same Hawks, rebounding from a two-goal deficit to score five unanswered and extend the Rebels winning streak to four games.

Despite skating hard and carrying the play through the first period of their February 25 contest at the Char-Lan Rec. Centre, the Rebels found themselves trailing 1-0 at the first intermission.

At the 5:20 mark of the second stanza, Winchester scored again, but the Hawks would be shut down from that point onward.

Late in the period, with 1:25 left, Alexandre Elie got Char-Lan on the board, assisted by Ryan Grant and Isaac Testani. Thirty-five seconds later, Cuyler Molinaro potted the equalizer, set up by Elie and Parker Tallman.

The Rebels took control in the third, as Noah Konink scored a natural hat trick. Assists went to Testani (2), Elie, Paul Waldhauser, Justice Brownlee, and Tallman.

Goaltender Summy Mughal started the game, switching at the midpoint with Ceili Picard. Together, they combined for 27 saves, while Char-Lan snipers had 33 shots at the Winchester net.

Konink, with his three goals, was named the game’s first star. Testani, with three assists, was tagged as second star.

Char-Lan went three-for-six on the power play, while the Rebels penalty killers grounded the Hawks through seven opportunities.
