Summerstown Trails to host annual clean-up day on Saturday

sean Oct 31, 2017 - 2:00pm

The Friends of the Summerstown Trails (FOTST) will be holding their Annual Clean-up Day on Saturday, November 4, starting at 9 a.m.

Given that there is less garbage/litter on the trails (good news!), volunteers will also be put to work removing the fallen branches and unwanted growth on the XC ski and snowshoe trails. 

The trails are located in the Summerstown Forest, on County Road 27 (Summerstown Road) between the 401 interchange and the Glen Road crossing.

FOTST president this year is Paul Couture. He and board members Vic Leroux and Jean-Pierre Tibi will be leading the activities.

The Friends of the Summerstown Trails (FOTST) is incorporated as a non-profit group run by volunteers with a stated mandate to maintain and develop green, recreational trails for healthy outdoor activities in the Summerstown Forest. In recent years, an impressive amount of progress has been made as trails have been improved and expanded, new grooming equipment and signage obtained and new activities offered, such as races, instructional lessons, outings for schools and seniors and Family Day activities. Rental of XC ski and snowshoe packages are also offered on weekends.

Nats victorious in pre-season finale

sean Oct 31, 2017 - 1:51pm

The top line of Ahmed Mahfouz, Maxime Guyon, and Sylvester Bzdyl combined for six points on Saturday night to lead the Nationals to a 5-3 victory over the visiting Watertown Wolves. It was the final pre-season tune-up for Cornwall, played in front of an announced crowd of 486 fans at the Civic Complex.  The Nationals complete their exhibition schedule with a 3-1 record.

Veteran defenceman Jay Kenney chipped in a goal and an assist, but once again, it was Mahfouz (two assists), Guyon (one goal, one assist), and Bzdyl (one goal, one assist) who paced Cornwall’s offence.

Tom Tsicos and Brandon Vuic also scored for the Nationals, who received a 31-save performance from Tyler Beskorawany. 

Cornwall outshot Watertown 37-34. Mahfouz (first), Beskorawany (second), and Kenney were the announced stars.

On Friday at Watertown, the Nationals iced a rookie-packed lineup and fell 6-2 to the Wolves. Stephen Gallo led the way for Watertown with a two-goal effort. Brandon Gilmour had both Cornwall goals, while Brandon Billie took the loss in net.

The Nationals are now set for the regular season, which opens on Friday, Nov. 3 in Watertown versus the Wolves. The following evening, Saturday, Nov. 4, Cornwall hosts Watertown in its Federal Hockey League home opener. The puck drops at 7:30 p.m.
