tice,” explained Anderson. “I’ve sold my shares so I can concentrate more on the hockey school at Le Sommet. There is more hockey coming for the academy and we are going to be very busy.” “Nothing is going to change for the team,” said Landers. “Just a different vision. I bought the team six years ago. It will stay in Hawkesbury, Rick Dorval will still be the coach. It’s still the same.” Anderson stated he is confident that the Hawks is in good hands and wishes them nothing but success. As well, the Hawks wish Anderson much success in his future.

After losing a tough game against Embrun November 8, the Vankleek Hill Cougars stepped up their game to beat both the St-Isidore Aigles and the Gatineau Hull Volant last weekend. Vankleek Hill is just two points out of first place in the division with one game at hand. The Vankleek Hill Arena was filled with Cougar and Aigles fans on November 14 to watch the game between these rivals. The first period was dominated by the Aigles, but the Cougars came around in the second period scoring three goals. Vankleek Hill goalie Anthony Vassall did a great job defending the net and was the main reason the Cougars finished the first period only down by a 2-1 score. Patrick Landry was the Cougars’ goal scorer. The Cougars came around in the second period and for the rest of the game scoring threemore goals with two by Brenden Rowe and one by Patrick Landry. Going into the third period, Vassall was replaced by Justin Villeneuve, at the end of the second period, due to an equipment issue. Cougars stayed on top with both teams exchanging two goals by Charlike McKeown and Max Edmond for a 6-4 win for the Cougars. These two teams will be back at it Novem- ber 22 in St-Isidore. November 15, the Cougars were in Ga- tineau to face off against the Volant. The Cougars have not always played well in an afternoon game after playing the night before; they were ready and fared quite well. The Cougars had a great first period sco- ring two goals by Sam Fournier and Char- lie McKeown. Riley Sauvé scored just one minute into the third to make a 3-0. Gatineau took advantage of a penalty in the third period reducing the score to 3-2. Tyler Dopelhamer took care of that quickly by scoring three unanswered goals to put Vankleek Hill in the lead with 6-3. Cedric Pilon brought the final win to 7-2 and a signi- ficant 4 point weekend. The Cougars will see their next home game on November 21 at 7:30 p.m. against L’Académie Outaouais (La Pêche).

Shawn Anderson has sold his shares in the Hawkesbury Hawks Jr A Hockey Club to focus his energies on Le Sommet Hockey Academy.

Anderson noted "With the current staff in place and the structure built within the club it was a perfect time to focus on this new and exciting venture. The growth potential within the School is there and needs nurturing and my full attention and with that it made my decision a bit easier. My heart will always hold a special place for the Hawks and I wish them nothing but success in the future. With the support of the town, sponsors, billets and volunteers I'm sure the Hawks will continue to grow and be a force in the CCHL. They are in good hands." The Hawks would like to thank Shawn for all his hard work and involvement over the past six years in which he helped the team grow and regain success and become one of the "go to" destinations in the CCHL. We wish him the best of luck in his future endeavours and in developing some potential Hawks for the future. Ian Henderson General Manager/Partner Hawkesbury Hawks Jr A Hockey Club
