Innisfail Edges Fort Sask 3-2 – Generals In Stony Plain Saturday Night


2 minute read

By Sheldon Spackman

After back to back losses, the Innisfail Eagles were looking to get back on the winning track on Friday night when they played host to the Fort Saskatchewan Chiefs.

The Eagles desire for a win was very evident in the first period as they out shot the visitors 18-9 in the opening frame and scored twice with goals from Ty Clay and Mark Bommersback to make it 2-0 Eagles after twenty minutes of play.

The second period was a tight one though where the shots on goal were close and no one was able to score.

In the third, the Chiefs out shot the Eagles 11-7 and got on the board at the 12:24 mark to make it 2-1 Innisfail but the Eagles Justin Cox scored what turned out to be the eventual game winner with 7:43 left to play. Fort Saskatchewan would score once more before the end of the period to make it 3-2 but it was too little too late, Innisfail hung on for the victory.

The Eagles record now improves to 3-2-0-2 with 8 points and good for second place in the Chinook Hockey League. Fort Saskatchewan drops to 1-4 with 2 points and fifth or last place in the CHL. The Eagles next action is Friday, November 25th when they host the Stony Plain Eagles.

Elsewhere in the CHL, the Lacombe Generals are in Stony Plain on Saturday, November 12th. The Generals are 6-0 with 12 points to start the season and the number one team in the league. Stony Plain is 2-3-0-1 with 5 points, on a four game losing streak and currently in fourth place.

Face-off is 7:30pm at the Centennial Arena in Stony Plain.

Access to Dawe Centre pool and community centre affected by expansion project – Details

Published on

Limited access to G.H. Dawe Community Centre this summer due to construction

Due to construction, access to the G.H. Dawe Community Centre will be limited this summer, with a full closure planned for August.

As announced yesterday, City recreation centres are opening fully to the public as of July 1. With construction underway at the G.H. Dawe Community Centre, only limited services and areas will be available.

Here’s what you need to know:

  • Starting July 2, fitness and gym areas will open from 10 a.m. – 8 p.m., daily. In July, summer day camps that normally operate from the Dawe will operate from other facilities.
  • The pool will remain closed until September.
  • To accommodate interior heating and ventilation construction, the facility will fully close from July 26 to August 31. Some registered preschool and summer camp programming may proceed, but no rental or general admission options will be available.
  • On September 1, we anticipate the pool will be open, but some other amenities, like the gym, may not be available. More information will be provided as construction progresses.
  • Playing surfaces in the arena will not be available until construction is complete, which is expected to be early 2023.

We are currently offering a discounted monthly Value Pass for $27 for adults ($24.50 for seniors; $21.90 for students; $19.30 for youth; $14.20 for children, and $60.50 for a family. It provides unlimited access to all facilities. As of August the Value Pass will only provide access to the Recreation Centre and Michener Aquatic Centre; however, access to the Dawe will be included in the Value pass until the pool, gym and fitness areas are open.

About the G.H. Dawe Community Centre Project

Work is underway now on the G.H. Dawe Community Centre Project and some exciting changes are in store. We expect to welcome visitors to the transformed space in early 2023. Here’s just some of what you can expect:

  • Two NHL standard playing surfaces
  • Expanded fitness areas, including a running track
  • Outdoor spray park with washroom facilities
  • Improved accessibility
  • Additional north entrance + site access from 67 Street
  • Additional parking

During construction, there will be some changes and impacts to existing amenities and programs, and we’ll do you best to share this information in advance. Thanks for your patience as we complete this work.
