LANTZ: One off game is all it took to derail the East Hants Pro Cresting midget girls Penguins of being in the final of their inaugural invitational tournament. The Penguins didn’t get great goaltending in a 5-3 loss to Subway Northern Storm in the semi-final of the six-team tournament. It included the four Nova Scotia Female Midget Hockey League (NSFMHL) squads and Moncton Rockets and Rothesay Netherwood from the New [..]

ANTIGONISH: For Daniela Mayo, playing rugby for the first time was love at first sight. The 21-year-old Milford Station product has played with the St. Francis Xavier University rugby X-Women for the past three years, which has included stretching their consecutive Atlantic University Sport (AUS) championship streak to 14 consecutive years. Although she never played at the Canadian Interuniversity Sport (CIS) nationals where the X-Women fell to the Guelph Gryphons [..]

LANTZ: It was the best weekend of the year for the East Hants Pro Cresting midget girls Penguins, but they still came away without a win.

Metro beat East Hants in Bedford, before blanking the Pens on home ice [..]

LANTZ: Hard work helped key a bounce-back effort for the East Hants Junior Penguins to earn a weekend split of their two Nova Scotia Junior Hockey League (NSJHL) games on Nov. 5 and 6. After a stunning 6-2 setback to fourth place Sackville Blazers in the Keith Miller Arena at the East Hants Sportsplex in Lantz on Nov. 4, the Pens held off the Glace Bay Miners 5-4 on Nov. [..]

LANTZ: Offence by committee seems to be the motto implied by the East Hants Junior Penguins if their first three games of the 2011-2012 Nova Scotia Junior Hockey League season are any indication. East Hants entered action Sept. 26-30 with a 1-0 (wins-loss) record and improved that with two 7-6 decisions, one in overtime over the Sackville Blazers on Sept. 26 in Sackville, and defeating the Cumberland Blues on Sept. [..]

LANTZ: The East Hants Pro Cresting midget girls Penguins got a taste of what the competition is like outside Nova Scotia during an exhibition weekend tilt against the Moncton Ricoh Rockets on Oct. 1-2.

Katherine [..]

INDIAN BROOK: The sounds of kids voices gets louder and louder as one rounds the corner to the field on a dreary Thursday afternoon at L’nu Sipuk Kina’muokuom (LSK) school in Indian Brook. There, on a wet field as more light rain falls one finds about 20 kids along with members of the very formidable Indian Brook Thunder Lacrosse club committee as the first practice session takes place. Brian Knockwood [..]

Volleyball isn’t just a girls’ sport at Hants North Rural High (HNRH) anymore. For the first time in six years, the HNRH senior boys have gathered enough interest and found a coach to reintroduce them to Division 3 volleyball. Coach Lori MacIntosh said she was approached by three to four boys last year who wanted to put a team together. She had taken the year off coaching the girls volleyball [..]

I have lived in East Hants for the past year of my life, and maybe it’s the fact that I work for a small town paper, but many of my story leads and key phrases all tend to contain or focus in on the idea and happenings of ‘community’.
