The Seaway Kickers U13 Mixed team improved to a 6-5 record on the season after hosting Nepean City August 9, at the Merkley Soccer Fields in Iroquois.
Scoring started early, at the five minute mark with a breakaway goal by Travis McInnis which made it 1-0, Seaway.
McInnis scored his second on the night at the 21 minute mark making, and then it was over to John Coligan who rounded out the first half scoring at the 34 minute mark for a 3-0 Kickers’ lead.
Despite a concerted defensive effort by Nepean City as play resumed, Seaway continued to dominate on the pitch.
David Swerdfeger scored at the 47 minute mark, Kaeghan Lowson at the 50 minute mark and Kaspar Furo at the 54 minute mark making it 6-0 for the Kickers.
Devin Vandermeer and Brayden Blacquiere-Rizk closed out scoring as the U13 Mixed team defeated Nepean City 8-0.
Goalie Shawn Dowson recorded his third straight shutout and his fifth on the season.

In other action the U13 girls split a pair of games.

The team finishes their regular season in Iroquois, on August 14, at 6:30 p.m.
The finals are set for Men’s Roller Hockey Thursday, following last week’s action.
The championship will be decided between New Blue and White Lightning.
White had a bye into the championship game on the merit of their quarterfinal win, but last week Blue had to win their way to the championship game, and had to go through the Morewood Monkeys to do it.
They did so handily, posting a 10-7 win.
Blue was first on the board and held the lead throughout the entire game.
The combined efforts of Justin Elliott and Connor Hodgson accounted for every one of Blue’s goals of their four-goal first period.
Elliott went on to record a six point night with three goals and three assists. Hodgson had a four-point night with two goals and two assists.
Chris Embry had a three goal night for the Monkeys, in their losing effort.
In other action, a last minute goal gave the Red Rockets a 9-8 win over White Lightning. The game winning goal was scored by Chad McMillan. It was his second of the night. Darrel Moore posted a team-leading seven point night with four goals and three assists.
Thursday night the consolation game will pit the Monkeys against the Rockets.
Our little rockers met each other in the “B” final of the “Big Four” bonspiel. Martina and Kyra Lewis, and Erin and Annika Gibbons lost their first game to Metcalfe, but won their second against Winchester. Nolan Belanger, James Szuky, Tommy Derikz and Abby Tritzsky lost a nail-biter to Winchester and defeated our other team to win the “B” championship.
The next day in the Ran Wylie bonspiel, Martina and Kyra Lewis, Rhiannon Beckstead and Abby Tritzsky won both of their matches to finish second. The curlers had a great time and are preparing for the little rocks playdowns in Cornwall on March 2.
At the senior men’s Bernie Brunt Invitational Bonspiel last week met at the club, with teams from Winchester, R.C.M.P., Russell, City View, Cornwall, Rideau and Kingston in attendance, as well as two local teams.
The early draw was won by the Marseille foursome from Winchester. As the high-scoring team they got their name on the trophy. Raymond Benoit, Peter Zeran, Jack Barkley and Fred “Boomer” Langlotz played well, but did not figure in the prize money.
In the late draw, Andy Patenaude, Mahlon Locke, Neil Williams and Bob Youmelle also finished out of the money, losing to Henry’s Prescott team, who tied with City View to win the draw and prize money. As usual, the meal was excellent, the ice was great, and the day was a financial success. The hard work of the volunteers was much appreciated.
The final Parnell competition for the season was held on Friday, and while three of our senior men’s teams wanted to represent us, we were only allowed one entry.
Raymond Benoit, Peter Zeran, Karl Duncan and Earl Jeacle defeated Dave King, Al Harriman, Rick MacKenzie and Fred Langlotz on Thursday and won the right to go to Lancaster for the bonspiel.
They won their first match against Prescott in an extra end, and after lunch played a strong Cornwall team. Unfortunately, Cornwall won, and with the point total, our fellows placed second to Lancaster. Well done anyway, fellows!
Susan McIntosh, Kathy Norg, Joanne Baker and Claire Locke competed in a ladies’ invitational “favourite twosomes” three-day bonspiel in Cornwall. Susan’s team lost on Friday night to Cornwall and dropped a Saturday match to Lancaster, but defeated another Lancaster foursome in the afternoon, qualifying them for the “D” final. They lost that match on Sunday, but came home happy, having enjoyed the meals, the costumes and the live band.
Several of the ladies wore interesting outfits. One pair, for example, dressed as ketchup and mustard (favourite condiments being the twosome in that case). That must have been worth the price of admission. Maybe Susan brought home pictures.
On Saturday, the Merkley Bonspiel was on at Metcalfe. Morrisburg, Russell and Winchester each brought two teams to compete. Our champions, Robbie Stitt, Robert Houze, Rick MacKenzie and John Toonders lost their opening match to Metcalfe and defeated Russell after lunch. This qualified them for the “B” final. With Robbie having to leave early, Joe enjoyed the banquet and skipped the team against Giroud’s Russell foursome. Russell won the competition and will defend the trophy next year.
Joe McCooeye, Larry Cooper, Peter McCooeye and Wally Baker dropped their matches against Winchester and Russell. The “A” final was an all-Metcalfe affair, with the championship won by Bill Woods’ team. It was a great day for the men
