2017 In Local Sports
Hi, this is Fred Wallace with " Off the Wire ".
As a daily exercise I jot down a sentence pertaining to what I consider to be the major local sports story of the day.
I'm not here EVERY day, but when you get to this point of the year and look back, it's fascinating...........
Julian Smith, the Attack 15 game win streak, and the Mapleton-Minto No-Show.
Codey Maus, Olivia Karn & suffice it to say, Adam Jones had quite a year in lacrosse.
The Kincardine Lady Knights won the CWOSSA " A-AA " Girls Hockey Championship in overtime
North Dundas of Winchester won the Elementary School Curling Championship at Chesley
Do you remember Petrus Palmu's lacrosse-like shorthanded playoff goal at Kitchener ?
Steve Irving ties for 3rd at Ontario Senior Champion of Champions Golf Tournament
How about the night the Junior NorthStars beat Orangeville 8-5 to tie their playoff series 1-1 ?
Chepstow & the rain won the OASA Midget Championship at Duncan McLellan Park.
The Wiarton Nationals won the Tom Simms Memorial Fastball Championship at Meaford while the Durham Dodgers took the Bluewater tournament title in Chepstow
The Owen Sound Aquatic Club set 5 club records at Provincial Meet
Dan Pepin & Ernest Ackert win the Chantry Chinook Classic
while Rob Hillyer took the Owen Sound Salmon Spectacular
Grey Motors United were eliminated from playoff contention in Kitchener District Soccer League on the final day of the season.
Saugeen Central won the Bluewater West Elementary Cross Country Meet while the Bluewater East Elementary Cross Country Meet moved to the Kiwanis Soccer Complex
The Wiarton Schooners cease operations, Kurtis MacDermid of Sauble Beach scored his 1st NHL goal for the LA Kings and sadly, Frank Coulter passes.
Plus, Julie Tippin's rink wins on Prince Edward Island to earn a berth in the Canadian Olympic qualifier at Ottawa.
And that's just scratching the surface of local sports.
We'll take another look before the end of the year and choose the game, event or moment that stood out.
