Being able to pinch his thumb and finger would give Nugent the ability to do things like cut a steak, pull up a zipper and hold a glass without spilling. “Being able to grasp things would be a big deal,” he says. “Right now, I use my teeth to open a bottle cap.”

Pontiacs on the Warpath to Renfrew and Arnprior


After two incredible games last weekend where the Shawville Pontiacs pummeled the Almonte Thunder 11-to-4 before going down to the Ottawa West Golden Knights 2-to-1, Vegas will be on Renfrew home ice this Friday as they take on Valley division 1st place Timberwolves.

After slipping into 4th place in the standings, the Pontiacs spectacularly re-tooled and locked the pieces together and have had an impressive string of wins as they battle their way back to 3rd place.  Still two games behind from scheduling changes, Vegas is poised to close the gap as they play the missing contests and catch up.

Vegas at Home Today for Matinee Tilt against Mustangs


The Pontiac Juniors are back home today to take on the Gatineau Mustangs after a hard-fought heartbreaker Friday night in Perth in an explosive game against a hard-hitting Blue Wings.  Vegas now slides down to fourth place in the Valley division standings.

Today's game will be at 3PM at home in Shawville between the sole two Québec teams in the EOJHL.  The Mustangs are currently in 2nd place just slightly behind first place Ottawa West in the Metro division standings.  This interdivisional match will be crucial for both teams, since it could help notch Gatineau into 1st place or help the Pontiacs climb back up to number three.

Vegas on the Road Tonight in Perth


The Shawville Pontiacs will be hitting the road this evening to take on the Blue Wings for their second match after shutting out Perth 8-to-0 on October 12th in the first match between the clubs this season.

The 6th place Blue Wings are coming off a 13 game losing streak after getting their first win against the Ottawa Junior Canadians Tuesday and will be surely looking to avenge their humiliating defeat at the hands of Vegas.

The Pontiacs however will need this win to break the trend of their three previous losses to solidify their place at number three in the EOJHL Valley division standings.

Game time is 7:30 at the Perth and District Community Center.

Game 11 at Home for Vegas Against the Packers Friday Night


SHAWVILLE — The Pontiacs are back home this Friday, October 31st, to host Arnprior in their second game this season against the Packers.

Looking to reverse the trend of their previous two road game losses last weekend, Shawville will be primed for the win.  They remain squarely positioned in 3rd place in the Valley Division standings, while their top performers continue to deliver on the ice.

Friday evening's game will start at 8pm at the Community Centre at the corner of Campbell and Lang streets in Shawville.

Vegas on the Road this Weekend for a Double Tilt


The Shawville Pontiac Juniors will be on the road this weekend for two important games as they continue to battle their way up the Valley division standings.

Saturday's game, in Almonte at 7:30pm, will pit the Pontiacs against the Thunder on the heels of last week's grinder that had to be decided by a shootout.  With Vegas taking the match, the Thunder will be looking for some payback after last weeks game pushed them further down in the standings and Almonte will be looking to close the gap between themselves in 4th place and Shawville, firmly nested in third.

Then Vegas will be off to Renfrew, to take on their main rivals, the Division's first place Renfrew Timberwolves at 7:30pm Sunday evening.  Whenever these two teams hit the sheet, sparks are bound to fly, resulting in some of the best hockey available anywhere.
