The Senior Rustlers move to 8-3 in inaugural NCHL season

The Red Deer Senior Rustlers kept pace in the North Central Hockey League standings on Saturday night with a 6-2 victory over the visiting Eckville Eagles.

The Rustlers earned their second straight win, avenging a 3-0 loss to the Eagles back on November 23 in Eckville. They accomplished a similar feat last weekend against the then league-leading Morinville Kings.

“Tonight was a four-point game for us in the standings, and the whole team played hard and delivered,” said Assistant Captain Kyle Pess. “We really didn’t put forth our best effort the last time we played these guys, and just like last weekend against Morinville, everyone came out hard and got the job done.”

Pess notched a pair of goals against Eckville, his first two tallies of the season. Pess was held goalless through his first eight games, but still led the team with 10 assists.

“It’s a big relief, for sure,” said Pess. “The goalless streak became a bit of a running joke with the team, but I’m glad I was able to help the team out in a big way tonight, and of course to finally get that monkey off my back.”

Brennen Francon also notched two goals, including the short-handed game-winner, adding to his team-leading goal total, which now sits at eight. Ty Berkholtz added three assists, and leads the Rustlers with 17 points.

Red Deer heavily dominated Eckville on the shot clock, outshooting them 53-17. In his eighth start of the season, Brett Bothwell needed just 15 saves to earn his fifth NCHL win.

While four teams are tied with 16 points, the Rustlers sit in second place in the league, one point back of the Daysland Northstars.

The Rustlers play their last game of 2018 Friday night against the Pirates in Sylvan Lake. Puck drop is 8:30pm at the Nexsource Centre.

The Results have Convinced Me

The Results have Convinced Me

I have been diabetic for a while but have never cared much about monitoring it. Finally, my doctor got upset at me and suggested I pay more attention and referred me to a Family Nurse to help me get focused. The nurse was very understanding and she listened to me. She made suggestions. However, I wasn’t really convinced this would make any difference. She asked me to write down everything I ate or drank and take my blood sugars regularly and write them down. I started to see trends and the errors in my ways. I decreased my intake of sweets and pop.

My A1C went from 15.8 to 7.1. I got more involved in activities. Now I walk 10,000 steps almost every day. The walking seems to help me keep everything else in line. And then the nurse suggested that I start doing regular blood pressure readings and I saw my blood pressure improve. An average reading for me now is 122/54. My doctor is really happy. My pant size decreased also. I was forced to retire a few years ago due to back issues, but I find when I exercise regularly I have much less back pain. I no longer needed pain killers.

You can see how I have become convinced that I can make a big difference in my health through my lifestyle choices. I would highly recommend anyone not paying attention to their diabetes to see a Family Nurse.

Peter von Tiesenhausen, a Lieutenant Governor of Alberta 2015 Distinguished Artist, spent the past six months hunkered down in Demmit Alberta building a deluxe playground for the community center – and musing about connectedness, the importance of social interaction and his role as an artist in the social contract.

Peter’s last project prior to the March 2020 COVID-19 lockdown was the installation of Things I Knew to be True in the newly renovated Stanley A. Milner Public Library, part of the City of Edmonton’s public art collection.
