RED DEER SENIOR RUSTLERS TAKE FIRST NCHL LOSS

The Red Deer Senior Rustlers drop to a 6-1 record after a 3-0 loss to the Daysland Northstars

The Red Deer Senior Rustlers winning streak came to an end Saturday night, as they took their first loss of the season in Camrose, a 3-0 defeat at the hands of the Daysland Northstars.

After a slow start to the game, the Senior Rustlers fell behind 2-0 late in the opening frame, with Lane Lightning scoring a pair of goals for the Northstars. The Rustlers were outshot 15-8 in that period.

Although the Rustlers picked up their play in the second and third periods, outshooting Daysland 16-10 and 15-11, respectively, they could not solve Joey DesRosiers, who was outstanding in net for the Lightning, stopping all 39 shots he faced.

The Northstars put the final nail in the coffin with two minutes to play, scoring on a 5-on-3 powerplay to make it a 3-0 game. Brett Bothwell was solid between the pipes for Red Deer, making 33 saves in his first loss of the season.

“Overall I think we played a pretty good game, we just had 10 bad minutes in the first, and then ran into a hot goalie,” said assistant captain Dustin Moore. “Some games you get away with a bad start, and some times you don’t. This time, it cost us.”

Moore, who leads the team with 12 points (4 goals, 8 assists) in six games, said the game was a good measuring stick for the Rustlers.

“Daysland is a strong team, and they played hard tonight,” he said. “It’s disappointing to take our first loss of the season, but I think we learned a lot as a team and can take a lot from this game.”

Despite the loss, the Senior Rustlers still sit atop the NCHL with 12 points, one ahead of Morniville and two ahead of Westlock, though both teams hold a game in hand.

With Friday night’s game against the Whitecourt Wild in Mayerthorpe postponed due to poor road conditions, Saturday’s tilt was the lone game of the weekend for the Rustlers, who now have a weekend off before a pair of road games against the Eckville Eagles and Morinville Kings on November 23 and 24, respectively.

Citizens invited to participate in discussions about housing and homelessness

As part of the on-going community engagement phase of the new Community Housing and Homelessness Integrated Plan (CHHIP) development, residents are invited to participate in community conversations about housing and homelessness in Red Deer.

Starting July 15, a series of Design Labs will offer a place for creative, cross-disciplinary innovation in the development of the Community Housing and Homelessness Integrated Plan. Design Labs are an opportunity for citizens to collaborate, provide ideas and recommendations with others on their own areas of interest. These Design Labs will be hosted at a variety of times and locations across the community.

To learn more about the Design Labs and to register for a session, please visit: www.reddeer.ca/CHHIP.

Driven by a Council Ad Hoc Committee, the overall goal of the Community Housing & Homelessness Integrated Plan is to develop a strategic and innovative housing plan that will help achieve the community’s housing goals.

“These interactive, solution-focused conversations will build on what we’ve already heard through our survey and open house, and will provide us with valuable insight as the committee develops the CHHIP,” said Ryan Veldkamp, Social Planning Supervisor for The City of Red Deer. “As a community plan, it’s integral, that it is reflective of the community’s needs.”

For more information about the CHHIP, please visit our Community Housing & Homelessness Integrated Plan webpage.
