Sean Boulerice, 40 Years of Refereeing.

Sean Boulerice, 40 Years of Refereeing

“It isn’t for everyone, but if it is for you, it can be a rewarding experience in so many ways.” So says local hockey refereeing legend Sean Boulerice.

So. What does it take to make an epic ref? Check out this resume: Boulerice earned a certification at the highest officiating level in amateur hockey (level VI) in 1993. He was a linesman in the American Hockey League, a referee and linesman in the Ontario Hockey League, and a linesman in the Canadian University (CIAU) national championships in 1991. He refereed in the Centennial Cup (now the Royal Bank Cup) in 1995, and Team Canada vs Team Sweden in a pre-Olympic tournament game in 1994 – during the NHL lockout – several NHL players including Glenn Anderson, Kjell Samuelsson, and Ulf Samuelsson played anyway. He also refereed the first game in Cornwall Colts’ history. Add to this numerous Central Junior Hockey League championships, as well as a Fred Page Cup, and the Ottawa Senators’ training camp in 1992. Finally, he refereed professional roller hockey (RHI) in the mid 1990’s. more

Brennan Ferguson Find’s the Perfect Fit with Soccer.

Brennan Ferguson Find’s the Perfect Fit with Soccer

A loved one’s illness is never an easy thing, especially when that loved one is a child. Jesse and Laura Ferguson know this all too well: Their son Brennan was diagnosed with leukemia when he was two years old. Luckily for the Fergusons, an early diagnosis, timely intervention, and intensive care have had the intended effect, and Brennan—now nine - has been symptom free for about four years.

And he’s discovered soccer. “The choice of sports for him was something that we had to consult his doctors about,” says Ferguson. “Some of the chemo he took has long-term effects on his heart and his joints. Basically, intense weight lifting, and sports that involve lots of physical contact, like American football, MMA, and hockey, are out.”

According to his parents, Brennan’s current health is very good, and last year, when the family decided to get involved team sports, soccer was an obvious choice. “It’s affordable, widely available in Cornwall, and that it’s easy to practice at home or at the park,” Ferguson says. more

Air Gliders Competitive Jumper Nathan Seguin

Local trampoline athlete and competitor Nathan Seguin is making a bid for the provincials in his chosen sport. “It’s like flying,” says eighteen-year-old Nathan, who’s been jumping for ten years, the last three at the competitive level. “I like the height. I like the exercise.”

Qualifying for provincial competition isn’t easy. Jumpers must score well in three provincial Cup competitions to move on. With the first Cup out of the way, Nathan still needs to excel in the final two, which will be held on March 23 in Niagara Falls, and April 26 in Kingston. more

Thirty-five-year-old Phil Antoniak lives in Ingleside with his wife, son Eli and a black lab named Ace. He works as a Project Coordinator for Enbridge Gas, out of their Cornwall office. Antoniak is originally from Brockville but moved to the area eight years ago for his career.

For as long as he can remember, Antoniak has loved to fish.

“I grew up spending the summers at our family cottage on Charleston Lake and there is where I fell in love with fishing and the outdoors,” says Antoniak. “I love the peace and tranquility of being out on the water on a nice day and just taking in the sights and excitement of maybe catching the big one.”

His earliest fishing memory, as it is for many, was with his father. more

Local Hockey Star Pete Piquette

Ellery Maloney, recently spoke with Sports Energy News to remember his friend Pete Piquette. Piquette was a local hockey goaltender in the 1940’s and 50’s who saw great success in his hockey career, landing him a spot in the Cornwall Sports Hall of Fame. Maloney says he’s known Pete and his wife Betty for most of his life.

Pete Piquette was an exceptional good goaltender and he started his junior hockey with the Cornwall Community Sports Club. Piquette was soon called to play with the Oshawa Generals Jr. A team in the OHA, (Currently OHL). Maloney recalls one of the highlights of Piquette’s time with the Generals was his encounter with George Armstrong, an All-Star player with the Toronto Maple Leafs. more
