Panthers and Falcons Gearing Up for the 10th Annual Charity Bowl.

Panthers and Falcons Gearing Up for the 10th Annual Charity Bowl.

It’s time for that fall classic of classics: the annual Charity Bowl. This year, Cornwall’s two English Language Secondary Catholic Schools will be squaring off at the Bob Turner on October 12 at 6 pm. Judging by past attendance, it’s a much-anticipated community event. The fact that all proceeds from the game go to The Good Samaritan Trust Fund is what puts the “charity” in Charity Bowl.

This year is the 10th iteration of the Charity Bowl; the overall record stands 6 wins to 4 in favour of the Panthers, who are the defending champions, having won last year’s contest 9-7 in what was, by all accounts, a nail-biter.

Tyler Fitzgerald Goes to Play in Sweden.

Tyler Fitzgerald Goes to Play in Sweden

Nineteen-year-old Tyler Fitzgerald has grown up playing hockey in the Cornwall Minor Hockey Association. Fitzgerald had always played house league hockey until the age of thirteen. He only started playing the position of goaltender at the age of twelve, which is when his hockey career really started to take off.

“I loved the position of goaltender the moment I put the pads on, even though I was not very good at it. The first year was a very rough one playing, but I continued to work at the position and loved every second of it,” says Fitzgerald. “I enjoy the position of goaltender because it’s so unpredictable, you can either be the reason your team wins or the reason your team loses, plus you can be weird with a solid excuse. At the age of thirteen, I had my first tryouts with the Peewee B rep team.

Unfortunately I was the final cut, but it only made me push harder for the next year. My goal was to see my last name on the back of a jersey. The next year I made the Peewee B rep team and continued to climb from there.”

Patricia Pichette Talks Multisport.

Patricia Pichette Talks Multisport

Since Patricia Pichette was a child, athletics have been a part of her life. Pichette says she was always at home or in the water, even into her teen years when she became a lifeguard. She also played rugby through high school, but began to slow down due to knee pain which intensified with each passing year.

“Upon following up with a surgeon it was recommended that I have surgery in both knees, which I did at 19,” says Pichette. “I let fear of pain keep me from sports and activity after that. I gained a lot of weight in my 20’s and was very sedentary. At one point I hit a size 22 and stayed there for over a year. I was pretty miserable and knew I needed to make some changes. I started all wrong with fad diets and the occasional walk. My weight yo-yoed for years and along with it my self-esteem.”

Soon, Pichette suffered a shoulder injury, which led her to decide she wanted to feel better and be better. “I wanted, and deserved, to be happy and healthy and only I could make that happen for myself. So after physio I spent about a year with a personal trainer to work on getting healthy and strong.

Local Hockey Star Pete Piquette by Ellery Maloney

Local Hockey Star Pete Piquette

Ellery Maloney, recently spoke with Sports Energy News to remember his friend Pete Piquette. Piquette was a local hockey goaltender in the 1940’s and 50’s who saw great success in his hockey career, landing him a spot in the Cornwall Sports Hall of Fame. Maloney says he’s known Pete and his wife Betty for most of his life.

“We both played hockey, we were both goaltenders on separate teams. We’ve been such close friends since our early teens,” says Maloney. “We were in each other’s wedding parties as well.”

Pete Piquette was an exceptional good goaltender and he started his junior hockey with the Cornwall Community Sports Club. Piquette was soon called to play with the Oshawa Generals Jr. A team in the OHA, (Currently OHL). Maloney recalls one of the highlights of Piquette’s time with the Generals was his encounter with George Armstrong, an All-Star player with the Toronto Maple Leafs.
