North Island rep hockey club hosts annual general meeting, awards dinner in Port Alice

PORT ALICE — Matthew Cahill, Curtis McCarrick, Chad Bell and Shae Mattice claimed MVP honours last week as the North Island Eagles rep hockey program hosted its annual general meeting and awards dinner at the Community Centre.

Cahill captained the peewee squad and was its top scorer before being called up to the bantam team for its run to the Tier 3 Vancouver Island championship and trip to the provincial finals.

McCarrick and Bell, Eagles linemates for the past five seasons, shared the bantam team MVP award after finishing as the squad’s top two players in goals, assists and penalty minutes.

Mattice, who captained the 25-5-3 midget team in his final season of minor hockey eligibility, was presented the Eagle MVP award for the midgets.

Additional Eagle trophies were awarded by each team for most improved and most sportsmanlike players, and Esso medallions for most dedicated, most improved and most sportsmanlike were also distributed.

Eagle trophies for Most Sportsmanlike Player went to peewee Shae Simpson, bantams Clayton Ellis and Riley Mathieson, and midget Derian Hamilton.

Trophies for Most Improved Player went to peewee Alex Scott, bantam Tyson Cadwallader and midget Taylor Logan.

Families and players provided dishes for the pot-luck dinner, which was followed by election of officers for the 2011-12 season.

Stephanie Boyko was elected president to succeed the outgoing Clint Cadwallader. Other officers include vice president Vadim Stavrakov, treasurer Linda Heavenor, registrar Tanya Kellar, equipment manager Brad Purdey and directors Tammy Bono, Pita Rosback, Leighann Ruel and Lou Klein-Beekman.

Head referee Marc Dumonceaux recognized five players who served as junior referees for minor hockey games and tournaments this season, including Alexander Stavrakov, Shae Simpson, Brandon Purdey, Derian Hamilton and Tyler Sexton.

In addition, the midget coaching staff of John Murgatroyd, Glenn Moore and Reed Allen and bantam assistant coach Ron Harvie were recognized for their efforts for the program despite not having any children involved.

A sign-up sheet was placed for players to volunteer with the association’s largest fund-raiser of the year, the Filomi Days Dance scheduled for July 16.
