Shawville brings home the silver: On March 2, 1993, the Shawville Junior men’s curling team travelled to Baie Comeau to represent the Outaouais in the Jeux du Québec.
Tom Fraser and Richard Allen accompanied the team who played three games from March 3 to the 5, racking up 53 points, enough to move them to the quarter finals along with only five other teams out of the 17 participating in the games.
They lost their final game by only one point, securing a very respectable silver medal for the Shawville rink.
The team: Lead Ralph Lang, Second Robert Lang, Skip Steve Allen and Third Rick Allen.
Murphy: Kings’ Rookie of the Year: This season there are only four hockey players in the Central Junior A Hockey League who have their roots from this side of the river and the Pembroke Lumber Kings have three of them on their roster alone.
Two are Shawville’s Ian Lang and Matthew Schock. The other is Shawville’s Luke Murphy, who was named this year’s recipient of the James Monsour Award for Lumber Kings’ Most Outstanding Rookie.
The Jr. A. hockey club, along with the parents of the late James Monsour, Eli and Marlene Monsour handed out the annual award at a special ceremony during a Feb. 28 match against the Cumberland Grads. The award took the first year centerman by surprise.
Murphy has 20 goals and 47 assists for 67 points so far this season.
