The Canadian Ball Hockey Association's Women's Team Canada is pleased to announce the selection of their two assistant coaches for the 2015 World Ball Hockey Championships in Zug, Switzerland.

Lori Parker of Vancouver, British Columbia and Tom Walsh of St. John’s, Newfoundland.

Lori Parker is returning to the National program after a brief hiatus and is very excited to rejoin the Coaching staff that has been assembled for the world championships in Zug Switzerland. She was a member of the coaching staff on the team that won gold in Pilsen, Czech Republic in 2009 and Silver in Bratislava, Slovakia in 2011. Her playing career spanned 25 years and was highlighted by being selected Captain of the women’s team that won gold at the first official Women’s World Championship in Ratingen, Germany as well as the Vancouver Sharks team that represented Canada at the Women’s World Cup in Pittsburg, USA in 2005. With her many years of coaching experience and playing experience, particularly on the international floor surface, Lori brings a combined package that begins with leadership, knowledge of the game and a passion to win.

Tom Walsh is excited to return for a second consecutive term as assistant coach of the Women’s National Team. His resume includes a gold medal from the 2013 World Championship which was held in his home province of NL. His goal is to support the WTC coaching staff and players in preparing to defend their World Championship title.
Tom has a diverse sporting background and has competed and coached in a variety of sports at the intercollegiate and senior levels. He has been coaching Triple “A” ice hockey teams and senior ball hockey teams for the past 8 years. His NL Home Hardware team are three-time provincial champs and have participated in the Eastern Canadian Championships for the past five years and have earned several medals and a couple of championship titles. Tom has always supported sport and ball hockey at the grass roots level. He just recently chaired the ‘Sports and Venues’ committee for the NL 2014 Winter Games and is presently the director of women’s ball hockey for Newfoundland and Labrador.

Tom is quite passionate about fitness. He is excited and humbled to be invited as assistant coach of WTC and is hoping that his fitness experiences will once again help our Canadian players in preparing for the upcoming World Championship in Zug, Switzerland.

“I am thrilled to have coaches the caliber of Lori and Tom returning to the team” says Diana Brown, Head Coach Women’s Team Canada. “The knowledge and experience that these two bring to the table will be integral to the success of the women’s team that will be defending the gold at Zug in 2015.”

The ISBHF is holding its 3rd Master World championships in September. A Couple interesting things are occurring.

First off this will be the largest Masters ever. Secondly this will be the first time our neighbour ASHI hosts a event in Tampa Bay with its partner Matt Geary and his complex. And finally the women will hit the masters stage for the first time.

National teams will be coming from Slovakia, Austria, Bermuda, USA and Greece. And of course the CBHA will have national teams for both the men and women representing all of our CBHA family.

But the CBHA will be sending 4 community teams to represent the CBHA. These teams come from Newfoundland, and the Toronto area, and Niagara Horseshoe area.

The Women`s and two men`s teams come from the OBHF. They are:

Women - Withrow Park - OBHF
Men - Toronto Wolfpak - OBHF
Men - Ballhockey.com - OBHF
Men - Newfoundland Screech - NLBHA

You can cheer these teams on along with our two National teams beginning September 17, on the web. Please check http://www.isbhf.com to get linked in.

Finally this will set the table for the players to prepare for the first Master`s Nationals in Ottawa in August 2015. Winner of that will represent us in 2016 at the next ISBHF Masters.

Thursday September 18
(4)Dragons vs Les Bananes(5) S.O
Les Bananes may have washed away some sour memories after defeating the Dragons in a shootout. Already with a goal during the match, captain S.Euchi patiently beat S.Fraga in the shootout with a tricky wrist shot. The story of the match however may have been the strong play of K.Arsenault who not only assisted in all three goals but was able to beat S.Fraga for a second time in the shootout. The Dragons just recently fell to the Bramabulls in the finals and had to go through Les Bananas in round one of the playoffs.
(9)Bramabulls vs Hellas(0)
From start to finish the recent champs cruised their way to an easy win. Many players had the fun of finding the back of the net that saw only M.Richard score more than once for his hat trick. With at least two goals in every frame, the Bramabulls stoned S.Sauk over 40 times leaving the veteran net minder discouraged. He didn’t have his busiest night but G.Follano will gladly take the shutout after facing a mere 14 shots.
(4)Brewers vs United Arms(1)
Once the Brewers grabbed the lead it became very difficult for the United Arms to find an equaliser. D.Verta snapped the 1-1 tie by the 11:30 mark of the second period and although the United Arms had plenty of time for an equaliser, they weren’t able to penetrate the defensive style that the Brewers possess. M.Rheaume took care of some offence finishing with three points and C.Muccino was nearly perfect in nets allowing only Y.Nazarian to beat him.
(5)Blades vs Mighty Drunks(6) O.T
B.Makris was absolutely remarkable for the Mighty Drunks. Its not often a player scores in every period as the talented forward was able to net four goals that included the overtime winner. Despite having a short bench, Blades led 4-3 up until B.Makris came up big twice in a short handed situation.


The player of the night goes to B.Makris. The talented forward amazed everyone by posting up four goals and a helper that included two short handed tallies in which one of those goals came in overtime.

...

Thursday September 18
(5)JAC Motosport vs Street Ballers(1)
While the first half of the game was evenly matched, The JAC Motopsort pulled away in the second portion bagging four straight goals to earn the win. F.Bazinet snapped the 1-1 tie on the power play and J.Montpetit made sure to put the game out of reach riffling back to back tallies. He didn’t score but J-P Angers was responsible for feeding three different teammates. The Street Ballers got to A.Kingsbury only once thanks to a lone goal from Y.Dube.
(4)Seals vs Assurance Evolution(6) S.O
Assurance Evolution powered three quick third period tallies before going into a shootout to take the match. J.Lamoureaux and Y.Gourde each solved S.Gagnon in the shootout while his counter part S.Borysiewicz denied both shooters from the Seals. Leading up to that point, captain S.St-Jean scored twice and added an assist for the Assurance Evolution while A.Daher had a stellar performance for the Seals netting a hat trick and a helper.
(9)Chiefs vs French Connection(3)
The Chiefs kept pushing all game long and benefited towards the second half of the game where they out matched their struggling opponents. With goals in every period, P.Santullo had a good night netting a hat trick while Y.Gazura matched his performance scoring three times as well. Other notables included A.Jalilvand scoring twice for the win while O.Valiquette was the French Connections best player finishing with two goals.
(4)Armored Saints vs Deadlast(1)
Four different players found the back of the net and C.Muccino did his part between the pipes as the Armored Saints win their season opener over Deadlast. M.Pecora buried a late first period goal that stood up for the winner and J.Magri along with N.Albanese were able to add insurance tallies securing the win. Deadlast got a taste of offence when J.Pantelis scored by the twelve minute mark of the second period.
(6)Billionaire Boys vs Stones(9)
In a battle of youth versus experience ends up favouring the veteran Stones.On three power play chances, the Stones capitalised twice getting goals from both J.Pizzuco and M.Salerno. After a slow first period, the Stones would eventually pour on the offence generating four goals in both the second and third periods .J.Pizzuco opened and closed the scoring for his club, M.DiLena scored twice as well and M.Colatosti was the most productive for the Billionaire Boys posting a hat trick.
(4)Renceur vs Legion(2)
Renceur looked for their power play to work as they converted twice with the five man advantage to double up their opponents. J.Picard and B.Deslauriers were the beneficiaries of the five man unit each notching keys goals in the game. Despite the loss, the Legion know that they can compete even with the best of them as Renceur just recently won the E summer Thursday night division.
(1)Scorpions vs Electric Area(5)
A short bench didn’t affect the Electric Area as they oust the Scorpions 5-1.Using their speed, the Electric Area only got better as the game went on. They managed to post up three third period unanswered tallies that included two on the power play. J.Verillo cashed in twice and A.Attia got credited the winner while their captain and net minder T.Wong allowed only one second period tally.

The player of the night goes out to Steve St-Jean of Assurance Evolution. The captain led his club to victory by scoring twice and adding an assist in a 6-4 shootout win over the Seals.

...

Wednesday September 17(Finals)
(6)TANK vs Red Nose(5) Game 1
With momentum shifting back and forth, Tank came out on top to grab a 1-0 series lead. Trailing by only one goal and with half a period remaining, B.Deslauriers used his blistering slap shots to not only even the score but to also put his club in front leaving just over a minute remaining in the game. Red Nose didn’t have the start they hoped for but were able to overcome a two goal deficit with three straight markers before dropping the contest in the end.
(5)Red Nose vs TANK(0) Game 2
Determination was all it took for Red Nose as they responded with a convincing win to even up the series. After grabbing a 1-0 first period lead, P.Koutsogiannopoulos took over with two big second period goals which were later followed with a pair of third period tallies from L-P Simard. After giving up five goals in game one, J-P Gagnon had a bounce back performance earning a well deserved shutout.
(2)TANK vs Red Nose(1) Game 3
An early goal from P.Koutsogiannopoulos wasn’t good enough for the Red Nose as Tank responded with back to back tallies to claim the F division championship. It took all but 60 seconds for M.Gagnon to tie the game up at one goal a piece. If that tally wasn’t big enough, the very same M.Gagnon struck for a second time putting Tank in the driver’s seat with just half a period remaining. With still plenty of time for a response, the Red Nose offence wasn’t able to penetrate the solid net minding of A.Mancini. Most of the Tank players recently won the E Thursday division with Renceur and barely a week later, they managed to capture a second title. On behalf of Hockeyballe.com we would like to congratulate Nicolas Gilbert and the rest of his crew for their recent success.

The player of the night goes out to Mathias Gagnon. In the most important game of the season, Mathias Gagnon scored both goals to defeat Red Nose 2-1 in a game three finals.

...

Wednesday September 17
(1)Brewers vs Bijoux Jr(7)
Despite allowing a late goal, BijouxJr did everything right to open up their season. A.Tremblay cashed in early and added a second period goal while A.Sousa struck twice as well to finish his night with three points. L.Dias was surely thinking of earning a shutout up until E.Pellerin spoiled the moment with less than three minutes remaining in the game.
(6)Punishers vs Buckshots(8)
The Punishers pushed hard towards the end but fell short as the Buckshots held on to a nail biter. The Buckshots entered the final frame with a 6-2 lead and got back to back goals from M.Mavroudis before M.Destounis capped it off in a yawning cage. As for the Punishers, three different players paired twice each that included efforts from K.Tsoukalas, E.Blanchette and C.Stamadianos.
(1)Maniaks vs Ducks(8)
A.Carvajal took the bull by the horns as a major reason why the Ducks generated so many goals. After netting two first period tallies, A.Carvajal posted up a total of four goals and an assist. The Maniaks got on the board only once in the second period where A.Haddad got the better of V.Trevi.
(1)Steelers vs Tyrants(5)
Wasting no time whatsoever, the Tyrants put the Steelers in an early bind. J.Lamoureu-Remo helped set up two early goals and the Tyrants got efforts from five different players to open up their season on the right foot. The Steelers did win the second frame with a lone power play tally from C.Retsinas as the only player to have figured out G.Platanitis.
(3)Fat Cats vs Fat Roy(9)
It may be early in the season but Fat Roy sent a quick message that they will be a front runner by the playoffs. J.Velonosi had an early impact accumulating four points in the first half of the game and P.Elizardo continued where he left up by posting three goals for a hat trick. The Fat Cats did get a pair of goals from T.Hatzithomas and will look to adjust quickly after losing by a landslide.
(3)Viking du Nord vs Nelmar(9)
Le Viking du Nord will need bodies if they hope to avoid losses such as this one. With only two changes in their line up, R.Ricard and his crew struggled all game long even though the captain was able to bury a pair of goals. Nelmar got plenty of offence from both their captain D.Hill and S.Pilon as each player notched hat tricks.
(3)MoneyShot vs ITT/Audi(2) S.O
Despite dropping a 2-0 lead, the Money Shot captured the extra point in the end. R.Kilgour, captain of the MoneyShot and James Tutino tallied in the first period before A.Stamiris netted back to back goals by the second period to even the score. With the third period and overtime solving nothing, a shootout was required where T.Olivieri was the lone successful player to score and lead the MoneyShot to a close victory.
(1)Chaos vs Hellfish(9)
The Hellfish were simply too strong on this night as they rout Chaos 9-1.Out of their nine goals scored, four players found the back of the net on two occasions. N.Fotakis, B.Rubino, J.Rodrigues and F.Benhamidi all scored two goals each while P.Maroulis notched the other tally. Chaos got their only goal from M.Delissandro as the only player to beat F.Vigliotti.

The player of the night goes out to Adrian Carvajal of the Ducks. His four goals and one assist was more than plenty to lead his team to an 8-1 win over the Maniaks.

...

Tuesday September 16
(6)PokerTree vs Animals(3)
P.Jacques nets goals in both the first and second periods to help lift PokerTree over the 0-2 Animals. PokerTree outscored the Animals 5-2 after two periods before trading third period tallies each. A.Richard scored his clubs fourth tally of the contest which was good enough for the winner and K.Hrivnack did his part between the pipes allowing one goal in every frame.
(1)Bramabulls vs Stealth Assassins(4)
Despite being down after one period, the Stealth Assassins upped their game by netting four unanswered tallies. D.Famulare and S.Minkiewicz each scored in the second period while N.Harvey was able to cap off the night with a pair of third period insurance markers. The Stealth Assassins made sure to press all game long knowing that they would have been able to wear down a shortened line up.
(8)Smooth Sailors vs Myrmidons(4)
For two periods the Myrmidons held their own until running out of gas by the final frame. Up by only one goal, the Smooth Sailors took advantage of the veteran club with three third period tallies. N.Cordeleone and M.Testolina had solid first periods notching two goals a piece and A.Pannunzio was credited the winner with a tally by the two minute mark of the second period. It came in a losing cause but G.Berberyan was a thorn out there posting all four goals for his club.
(2)Smackdaddys vs United Arms(1)
The Smackdaddys struck early and defended till the very end to edge the United Arms. A.Romano got on the board first and S.Euchi followed moments later for a 2-0 Smackdaddys lead. The United Arms tried everything possible to narrow the gap and had to wait until the six minute mark of the third period before M.Batri finally got to S.Morante. The Smackdaddys like to use a full bench and are able to use it properly making it difficult for their opponents to generate goals.
(7)Legacy vs Concept(6)
With the way the game was going from the very beginning, each side knew that this outcome would have been decided till the very end. After exchanging six goals each, E.Girouard had the last word by snapping a 6-6 tie with less than five minutes remaining. For most of the match, Legacy found themselves chasing for an equaliser and finally got there before adding the winner.
(2)Spartans vs Slayers(3)
One solid period wasn’t good enough for the Spartans as the Slayers overcame a 2-0 deficit to take the match. The comeback occurred just passed the mid way point of the game where J.Desmarais put the Slayers on the board. M.Siconolfi helped set up C.Chirola for the equaliser and J.Samaha for the game winner which came by the eight minute mark of the final frame. After letting up two first period tallies, E.Morris stood his ground the rest of the way to earn the victory.

The Boston Pizza player of the night goes to Nick Harvey of the Stealth Assassins. Up 2-1 after two periods, Nick Harvey made sure to secure the win by netting two insurance markers.

...

Monday September 15
(3)Capitals vs River Rats(2)
The River Rats led for almost the entire game up until a late tally from M.Boucher put the Capitals in front. Down by a goal, the Capitals pushed hard when it counted the most riffling two unanswered goals to steal the match. P.Archambault helped set up two tallies for the win and J.Richer was stellar between the pipes after facing nearly 30 shots.
(1)Team Finland vs Team Greece(4)
Three sweet feeds from N.Pitsikoulis was just what Team Greece needed in a 4-1 win over Team Finland. The number 9 helped set up two first period goals while setting up J.Adamou by the final frame. Known for their fire power, Team Finland tallied all but one goal that came by the early stages of the final frame courtesy of C.Corsi.

The Boston Pizza player of the night goes to Costa Stavriadis of Team Greece. The net minder had the difficult challenge of facing Team Finland and did a splendid job allowing only one tally.

...

Monday September 15
(5)Whalers vs Assaut De Laval(2)
Two and a half minutes is all it took for the Whalers as they hand Assuat De Laval a 5-2 loss. The Whalers opened the flood gates passed the mid way point of the second period where they bagged four quick goals putting the game out of reach. S.Shorkey, captain of the Whalers had the most tallies with two while M.Mercier got credited the winner in a three point performance.
(7)Bramabulls vs Hollywood Hustlers(4)
The Bramabulls used their deep bench to take down the Hollywood Hustlers. Each side went on a scoring frenzy by the late stages of the second period where the Bramabulls won the sequence 3-2 getting tallies from three different players. S.Marricco had a multi goal game for the Bramabulls while J.DiMarco did the same for the Hollywood Hustlers.
(11)Venom vs Raging Rhinos(3)
The Raging Rhinos were left numb in their season debut falling heavily to Venom. They did however win the opening frame 2-1 up until things took a completely different direction. Venom exploded equally in the second and third periods notching five goals a frame. B.Deslauriers and J.Courteau each had hat tricks while N.Gilbert followed next in line with a pair of tallies.
(1)Latin Blue vs X-Treme(6)
For someone who didn’t find the back of the net surely made plenty happen for X-Treme. Out of his clubs six goals, J.Driscoll made five of them happen that included a pair of markers each from M.Chartrand and T.Oliviera. X-Treme jumped to a solid early start building a 3-0 lead by the six and a half minute mark and went flawless most of the way despite allowing a second period goal. J-D Barrios was the lone tallyman for Latin Blue to have figured out P.DelliColli.

The Boston Pizza player of the night goes to Jonathan Driscoll. Using his vision, Jonathan Driscoll accumulated five assists to help lift X-Treme to a 6-1 win over Latin Blue.

...

Sunday September 14 (Finals)
(0)Bijoux vs HC Mutts(3) Game 1
The HC Mutts did everything right in game one to move one step closer to their ultimate goal. After getting on the board twice in the second period, M.Maggiore summed things up when he netted the HC Mutts third goal of the contest on the power play. Even if the game felt out of reach, Bijoux tried everything possible to get at least one by J.Capaldo in hopes of bringing some positive vibes for game two. N.Pereira and B.Sansotta were the other HC Mutts to get on the score sheet.
(6)HC Mutts vs Bijoux(0) Game 2
Taking nothing for granted, the HC Mutts made sure to get things done right away. For a second straight game, M.Maggiore came up clutch with a timely goal for a 3-0 lead. That tally left only a little over a period for a team struggling to find the back of the net. While the HC Mutts made it a priority top play flawless defence, plenty of credit is attributed to J.Capaldo who blanked a very good team for a second straight game. N.Pereira capped off the season by posting two third period insurance markers. On behalf of Hockeyballe.com, we would like to congratulate James Sacco and the rest of the HC Mutts for capturing the E Sunday night division.

The Boston Pizza of the game goes to John Capaldo. The brilliant goaltender swept the series posting back to back shutouts.

...

Wednesday September 10(Semi finals)
(5)Generals vs Black Knights(2) Game 1
After dropping the first two goals of the game, the Generals kicked it into gear responding with the next five tallies to take the series opener. The comeback began when Julien Brunet got to J.Beaudry by the four minute mark of the second period which eventually led to four other Generals finding the back of the net. Jeremie Paradis snapped an early third period 2-2 tie which stood as the game winner. O.Gaucher recovered quickly after a slow start to the game finishing strong between the pipes top earn a well deserved victory.

Due to lack of players, Red Lite weren’t able to floor a team in their series versus the Royal Flush which now forces the ten time National champions to respond with two straight games in hopes of advancing to the finals.

The Boston Pizza of the night goes to Olivier Gaucher of the Generals. The net minder was flawless in nets as of the four minute mark of the second period where his club began their comeback.

(3)Red Lite vs Black Knights(2) O.T
It took an overtime win but the Red Lite got it done to finish off their season in first place. The Black Knights managed to overcome a 2-0 deficit getting goals from P.Musto and S.Sacco before N.Vargas-Dias ended the night with the sudden death winner. S.Legris and S.Ghilarducci notched the other tallies in the victory and Mathieu Duguay got credited the win allowing only two goals in a short span of less than a minute.

Wednesday September 3
(6)Red Lite vs Black Knights(3)
The ten time National champions continued their rhythm on Wednesday night by doubling up the Black Knights. Although the Black Knights had the better start posting a 3-1 first period lead, the Red Lite found an extra gear in the final frame where they riffled four unanswered tallies to take the contest. Y.Jomphe evened the score at three goals a piece and was able to add his second of the night as the only multi goal scorer of the match.
(8)Generals vs Royal Flush(1)
K.Kuczmarski’s two first period goals set the tone as the Generals run away with an easy win. The Generals cruised their way to an easy result and had the luxury to slow things down if they wanted knowing that they had a game immediately after versus the Black Knights. Apart from his two first period goals, K.Kuczmarski added to his production by setting up both J.Adamou and J.Bradley.
(8)Generals vs Black Knights(1)
The Generals simply duplicated what they did earlier on by routing the Black Knights 8-1.Most of their production occurred in the second frame where they posted up five goals to carry a comfortable 7-1 third period lead. Maxime Duguay and S.Proulx had multi goal games, and for a second straight match, O.Gaucher allowed only one tally.

The Boston Pizza player of the night goes to Olivier Gaucher. The Generals net minder allowed a mere two goals in back to back games versus the Royal Flush and the Black Knights.

Women's Team Canada Assistant Coaches Announced

The Canadian Ball Hockey Association's Women's Team Canada is pleased to announce the selection of their two assistant coaches for the 2015 World Ball Hockey Championships in Zug, Switzerland.

Lori Parker of Vancouver, British Columbia and Tom Walsh of St. John’s, Newfoundland.

Lori Parker is returning to the National program after a brief hiatus and is very excited to rejoin the Coaching staff that has been assembled for the world championships in Zug Switzerland. She was a member of the coaching staff on the team that won gold in Pilsen, Czech Republic in 2009 and Silver in Bratislava, Slovakia in 2011. Her playing career spanned 25 years and was highlighted by being selected Captain of the women’s team that won gold at the first official Women’s World Championship in Ratingen, Germany as well as the Vancouver Sharks team that represented Canada at the Women’s World Cup in Pittsburg, USA in 2005. With her many years of coaching experience and playing experience, particularly on the international floor surface, Lori brings a combined package that begins with leadership, knowledge of the game and a passion to win.

Tom Walsh is excited to return for a second consecutive term as assistant coach of the Women’s National Team. His resume includes a gold medal from the 2013 World Championship which was held in his home province of NL. His goal is to support the WTC coaching staff and players in preparing to defend their World Championship title.
Tom has a diverse sporting background and has competed and coached in a variety of sports at the intercollegiate and senior levels. He has been coaching Triple “A” ice hockey teams and senior ball hockey teams for the past 8 years. His NL Home Hardware team are three-time provincial champs and have participated in the Eastern Canadian Championships for the past five years and have earned several medals and a couple of championship titles. Tom has always supported sport and ball hockey at the grass roots level. He just recently chaired the ‘Sports and Venues’ committee for the NL 2014 Winter Games and is presently the director of women’s ball hockey for Newfoundland and Labrador.

Tom is quite passionate about fitness. He is excited and humbled to be invited as assistant coach of WTC and is hoping that his fitness experiences will once again help our Canadian players in preparing for the upcoming World Championship in Zug, Switzerland.

“I am thrilled to have coaches the caliber of Lori and Tom returning to the team” says Diana Brown, Head Coach Women’s Team Canada. “The knowledge and experience that these two bring to the table will be integral to the success of the women’s team that will be defending the gold at Zug in 2015.”
