The Eagles Football team finished the regular season at home Friday with a 25-8 win over the Oak Park 2 Raiders.

After an emotional presentation to the Paquin family in memory of former Eagles footballer Pierre Paquin, and a presentation by retiring players to their parents, the Eagles got to work on the field against the Raiders.

Derrick Tattrie, Mitchell Boudreau and Michael Lampshire all brought home touchdowns for the Eagles.

Adam Swientek made one conversion while Nick Nault added the two point conversion.

The Defensive teams forced two safeties.

“We were able to build an early lead, which allowed us to put in some younger players. The young guys rose to the challenge, with Russ Balla getting two sacks in the game” said coach Zilkalkns. “Our special teams also performed well in recovering fumbles and blocking kicks.”

Moving into the playoffs, Zilkalns says that “there’s always room for improvement, especially on offense. There are no easy ones from here on in.”

The Eagles travel to Winnipeg next Friday to begin their playoff run against Murdoch McKay. Game time is 3:00.

Good luck Eagles!

Krista Bannan is tops in Business Plan Competition

Mike McCaffery (l) and Mike Greaves (r) present Krista Bannon with an iPod Touch for 1st place in the Business Plan Competition.

Mike McCaffery (l) and Mike Greaves (r) present Krista Bannon with an iPod Touch for 1st place in the Business Plan Competition.

On Friday, representatives from the Northwest Business Centre were on hand to present Krista Bannan with an iPod Touch, her prize for taking first place in the 2009 Business Plan Competition.

Krista’s was one of about 30 entries from Northwestern Ontario that were evaluated by volunteer judges from the business community. The plans were evaluated on the basis of viability, creativity and needs to be fully complete.

Krista developed her plan in Mr. Beatty’s Entrepreneurship class. Her plan had her taking her sewing experience and providing after school lessons for kids.

According to Mike Greaves, the competition aims to “give students an idea about business planning, and encourage them to consider business planning or entrepreneurship as a career.”

Krista will now take her entry to Thunder Bay, where she will compete against other Northern Ontario regional winners for more prizes and the chance to compete provincially.

The competition runs on a yearly basis, with entries for this year’s contest due in June.
