Initiation Program hits the ice!

In DMHA action the IP 4,5 and 6 hit the ice Saturday morning at Olympic Arena.  With lots of returning players and several new ones the players had a blast and loved being back on the ice.  Registration numbers are up significantly from last year which is great.  Under the direction of Head Coach Dan Pletch, its going to be a fun and exciting year for these young DMHA players!!

Blues have winning week!

Improve record to four and two!

Dundas Jr Blues

The Hamilton Huskies Jr Blues played three times this past week winning all three games.  It started last Sunday on the road in Port Dover where Jamison Buck was set up by Carter Franks to score with one minute left in the game to give the Blues a 3-2 win over the Sailors.  The other goals were scored by Matt Wright from Ryan Chandler, then Chris Cudek scored from Brandon Waterhouse and Buck. Connor Ogg earned the win in net with 27 saves. 

At home on Thursday night the Blues beat Hespeler Shamrocks by a score of 6-3.  Buck led the Blues with 2 goals, while Stephen Bell, Franks, Cudek and Dan Attridge each scored once. Milan Bango, Pat Vulgan and Wright each had 2 assists, while one each went to Will Thomas, Connor Pilon, Jacob Bishop and Waterhouse. Ogg earned his second consecutive win making 20 saves. That gives Ogg his third win of the season. 

Saturday night it was off to Hagersville to take on the Hawks. Where the Blues skated away with a 5-1 victory for another win and topping off a good week on the ice. Cudek with 2.6 seconds left in the 1st period put the Blues on the scoreboard and up 1-0.  The Blues came out in the second period firing on all cylinders and it continued for the rest of the game. Colin Kijowski had a good night scoring once and also earning two assists. Other goal scorers were Pilon, Bell and Franks.  Jake Fleming earned his first win in goal making 41 saves.  

The hard work of the coaching staff and players in practice is paying off as the team looks stronger every game they play. They are now sitting in third place with 4 wins and 2 lossses.

Note: The Blues will be playing all their home games at Chedoke Arena with a 7pm start until Market St Arena has been completed, which can’t come soon enough. They also found out this week they will be practicing on two different ice surfaces from which they play their home games on which is not the best for preparing for games.  The first game for the Blues in their second temporary home rink of the season is this Thursday October 4th against the Port Dover Sailors. Come up the hill and support the Blues!


Blues without Home Rink for Games!

Blues hit with more bad news!

Dundas Jr Blues

The Blues received bad news last week when they were informed by the City that the October 9th date to be back into Market St Arena was being delayed again.  

The City told the Blues, Real McCoys and the DMHA that the new date is now January 2nd, 2019 with a possible earlier date if the rink is completed, leaving all three organizations devastated. 

As if that news wasn’t bad enough for the Blues, things only got worse this week.  They were expecting to continue playing at Olympic Arena on Thursday nights until Market St Arena was completed as they did last year, then came the upsetting news.  The City informed the Blues that the ice they used for home games last year from the Figure Skating Club wasn’t going to be available this year. The figure skating club said they couldn’t give up that 2 hour block to help the Blues out this year.  So starting October 4th the Blues will have to play their home games at Chedoke Arena, with the games starting at 7:30pm.  This makes every game like a road game for the Junior hockey team who will continue to practice at Olympic Arena.

Blues President Steve Aglor said, “although very disappointed we will have to work through it and we will definitely be looking forward to getting back into Market St Arena when the time comes.”  Aglor also noted that Councillor Arlene VanderBeek has been working hard to get help for the Blues financially as this season is definitely going to be tougher on the local junior team than last year.

The Blues who now call themselves the Hamilton Huskies Jr Blues are playing 500 hockey with 2 wins and 2 losses after their first four games. Their final game at Olympic is this Thursday when they host the Hespeler Shamrocks at 8:30pm so come out and cheer them on.

Blues first four games scores: Niagara 7 Blues 6, Blues 5 Hespeler 4, Glanbrook 6 Blues 3 and Blues 3 Port Dover 2.

Quote from the "If you grew up in Dundas you remember when ..." facebook group.

It’s pretty sad to find out the Community Papers are not covering sports anymore. There is no longer a sports section in the Dundas Newspaper or any other community paper. 
There will no longer be any coverage of any sports events or game results being published.As far back as I can remember that’s where everybody looked to find out how the local sports teams were doing. 
I have scrap books of all the games I ever played or my kids ever played. They were made from pictures and write-ups I cut out of the Community Paper right back to when it was the Dundas Star.

It’s a pretty sad day knowing now that whether it’s baseball, hockey, basketball, soccer or any other sporting event the young kids can’t look forward to seeing a write-up or picture of themselves in the local community paper.
