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.

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’S EPIC ART

Published on

from the Lieutenant Governor of Alberta Arts Awards Foundation

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.
