  • Home sweet home

    The Steinbach Pistons did not hoist the Turnbull Trophy but one Steinbach resident on the ice was celebrating. A jubilant Taylor Friesen lifts the Manitoba Junior Hockey League’s most coveted prize after his Portage Terriers cruised to a four-game sweep Tuesday night in Steinbach. Portage went undefeated in the post-season, a remarkable run that only blossomed after posting a 53-3-4 record in the regular season. Friesen, a former Piston, did not play Tuesday since he has started serving a three-game suspension. Portage will head to the Western Canada Cup before returning home next month to host the national junior A championship, while Steinbach’s season comes to a disappointing conclusion.

  • Good as gold

    One of Canada’s most well-known Olympians, Jon Montgomery, spoke of finding the confidence to become the best in his sport to a crowd of business leaders at the Steinbach Chamber of Commerce’s annual spring banquet Wednesday at the Friedensfeld Community Centre. Confidence is one thing the skeleton gold medallist has in abundance—his beer-swilling strut through Whistler Village comes to mind. He received no pitcher this time around but had a glass of water to chug as The Amazing Race Canada host described his humble upbringing to how he stumbled upon sliding down a frozen track during his address.
