After a two year sabbatical, Jason Hathaway will return to the NASCAR Pinty’s Series on a full time basis for 2019.
Aboard the familiar No. 3 Ed Hakonson Racing/ Team 3 Red Chevrolet Camaro, this year Hathaway will enjoy support and sponsorship with Kubota Canada, Fast Eddie Racewear and Choko Authentics as he prepares for the 13 race NPS season.
“The last couple of years Kubota has been working with us, but they wanted to come on board this year as a primary (sponsor),” explained Hathaway. “They approached me about coming back as the driver, and the team added their support as well. I think the guys just wanted to shut me up!”
Hathaway, who has nine career victories in Canada’s only professional stock car racing series, comes back to the NASCAR Pinty’s Series with a fresh point of view.
“Until 2017, I had only seen the races from the driver’s seat, and I never saw the full picture. I’ve learned a lot from watching from the outside, not only watching our team, but watching other teams as well. I think that gives us an advantage going into this year.”
Hathaway and the Stouffville-based E.H.R. team will begin their 2019 campaign at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park over the Victoria Day Speedfest weekend, returning to the Bowmanville-area facility in late August.

UXBRIDGE: The Uxbridge SS girls volleyball team wrapped up a stellar season last week, earning Silver Medals at the OFSAA provincial championships, in Burlington.
After rolling through LOSSA play with an undefeated regular season record and a dominant local playoffs saw the Tigers book their fourth consecutive ticket to the provincial championship tournament after defeating Pickering in a thrilling LOSSA championship match.
Coming into the provincial competition ranked 5th out of the 20 competing schools, the Tigers roared in the opening day of competition, on Monday, March 4th.
The Tigers clawed their way to an undefeated record in the opening day of round robin play, winning over Glebe (Ottawa), Eastview (Barrie) and the hosts from Frank J. Hayden, ranked second in the province coming into the tournament.
After opening the second day of competition with a win over Lo-Ellen Park (Sudbury) to wrap up round robin play, the Tigers entered the knock portion of the event chasing their first provincial championship since 2016.
The Tigers made quick work of their quarterfinal foe, Toronto’s Sir Oliver Mowat CI, with a straight sets win to set up a semi-final showdown.
Uxbridge faced a tough test in the semi-finals, squaring off against St. Marcellinus SS (Mississauga). The two sides traded opportunities throughout a back-and-forth affair that saw the Tigers finally prevail in the fifth set to punch their ticket to the championship match.
Awaiting the Tigers in the Gold Medal match was the powerhouse team from Saunders (London). Despite a valiant effort, the Tigers come closer than any other opponent to winning a set against the top-ranked team, Saunders prevailed in straight sets.
The Uxbridge team showed great poise and determination throughout the season, and will likely be a contender next season to return to the OFSAA championships for a fifth consecutive season.

UXBRIDGE: Finally, the Cougar Cup has come back to Uxbridge.
An empty net goal by captain Aiden Reilly sealed a 4-2 victory in Game 5 over the North Kawartha Knights at the Bear Den on Monday, March 11th.
The win on home ice capped an emotional, five-game series that saw Uxbridge win four consecutive games to give the team its seventh division championship and first since 2009.
In Game 2, Reilly scored with just 2.7 seconds remaining regulation time as the Bruins rallied to tie the series 1-1. Justin Bennett opened the scoring for Uxbridge, with Simon Feig adding a pair in a 4-3 Uxbridge win in Apsley.
Reilly has been a tireless worker throughout his five-year career with the Bruins. And, as Assistant Coach Trevor Cox explained, he has been a remarkable leader as captain throughout the season.
“Aiden has been our hardest worker all year and a great leader. This is really an exclamation point for him and all of our overage players,” Bruins Assistant Coach Trevor Cox told The Standard. “Those four guys especially, they’ve been through a lot and everyone knows how hard they’ve worked to lead us all season.”
A second period goal by overage defenceman Tom Sheedy highlighted a 6-3 Bruins win at Game 3, in Uxbridge on Friday night.
The Bruins carried a 3-2 lead into the third period led by goals by Matt Hunter, Sheedy and Simon Feig. In the final frame, the Bruins offence roared to life, as goals by Esa Patton Michael Rennie and Justin Bennett (shorthanded) pushed Uxbridge to a 6-3 win.
One of three Uxbridge-raised players on the Bruins, Sheedy has been a fan favourite throughout his career with the team, dating back to 2013.
“Tom is the heart and soul of our defence,” explained Assistant Coach Mike Spataro. “It was a great moment, when he scored that goal and his reaction was to salute our fans.”
Following Game 5, Sheedy was elated to share the championship with his teammates, as well as the Uxbridge community.
“This is a childhood dream. I grew up going to Bruins games on Friday nights, so it’s unbelievable to win like this at home and give back to the amazing fans that we have in Uxbridge.”
Saturday night saw the Bruins rally from an early 2-0 deficit in Apsley to score a 5-3 victory, sealed with an empty net goal by Bennett.
Toby Cooper, Adam Turner and Jackson Savery scored in the second half of the first period to give Uxbridge a 3-2 advantage. Savery scored a powerplay goal to give the Bruins a two-goal advantage before the Knights knotted the game. Several sensational saves from Ryan McConkey kept the North Kawartha offence grounded before Bennett’s empty net score with three seconds remaining.
The Bruins will now move onto the provincial quarterfinals, matched up against the Tod Division-champion Napanee Raiders in the PJHL Eastern Conference Finals.
Uxbridge won a coin toss following Game 5 on Monday evening, and will likely begin their series against the Raiders, at the Bear Den on Monday, March 18th. Napa nee swept the Picton Pirates in four games to punch their ticket to their first quarterfinal appearance since 2010.
In their home-and-home encounter this season, the Raiders took both games against the Bruins by single-goal margins. Head Coach Andrew Langlands acknowledged that since those meeting happened early in the season, there is still an element of intrigue headed into the highly-anticipated provincial quarterfinal match-up.
“There are still a lot of unknowns between us and Napanee. I feel like both teams have tweaked their rosters for the better,” Langlands told The Standard. “The most important thing that our team has learned in these playoffs, is that we can overcome adversity. This team is so focused and so willing to sacrifice for one another and we’re going to be equally rested coming into this next series.”
CHARLES JUNG Special to the Standard
An unusually icy winter combined with a series of thaws means potholes appear faster and earlier than expected.
Appearing, as if by magic, the dreaded pothole is the nasty surprise winter leaves behind.
While hitting a pothole can damage tires, wheels, and suspension the damage can be much more severe, including injury and, in some cases, death. Potholes also present a much bigger danger for motorcyclists, pedestrians and cyclists.
If you have been injured or your vehicle has been damaged by a pothole, the local road authority may be on the hook to pay. Ontario’s provincial Ministry of Transportation (MTO) and local municipalities have a duty to keep the roads, under their jurisdiction, in a reasonable state of repair, and have a legal duty to take reasonable steps to keep their roads free of hazardous conditions.
The regulation in the Municipal Act (Minimum Maintenance Standards Regulation), designed to restrict claims against municipalities, deems a pothole on municipal roads to be in repair if it is less than 8 cm deep and 1000 cm2 in surface area, on a city street, carrying over 10,000 vehicles a day.
The legal duty of MTO and municipalities does not mean they must always keep roads in perfect condition; that would be impossible. However, employees responsible for maintaining roadways have time lines they must meet, to avoid legal liability. The time lines demand the busiest roads, with the highest posted speed limits, be treated with priority.
If the MTO or a municipality fails to maintain a road within the expected time line, and someone is injured in a crash or a vehicle is seriously damaged due to bad road conditions, the courts sometimes hold the MTO or the municipality liable. In many cases, a driver can make a claim against a municipality’s insurance for vehicle damage caused by a pothole.
If you see a pothole, you should report it when it is safe to do so. If your vehicle is damaged, or you are injured by a pothole, you will need to, safely, take pictures and measurements. With pothole damage or injury, you must file a claim within 10 days of the incident.

UXBRIDGE: The Uxbridge Bruins were back on the road to the Clarence Schmalz Cup this week, hosting Game 1 of the Orr Division Cougar Cup Finals against the North Kawartha Knights on Monday, March 4th at the Bear Den.
The Knights appeared to catch the Bruins hibernating in a Game 1 blowout, skating to a 6-1 victory.
The two teams appeared polar opposites in Game 1. The Bruins struggled to find consistent intensity after a week-long layoff from game action following a sweep of the rival Port Perry MoJacks in a Battle of North Durham in the Orr Division semi-finals. Meanwhile, the Knights had engaged in a back-and-forth duel with the Lakefield Chiefs that saw the Knights stumble after taking a three-games-to-none lead, ultimately winning Game 7 on home ice on Sunday, March 3rd.
North Kawartha’s Jesse Douglas - an original member of the team - scored less than three minutes into Monday’s game to give the Knights an early lead, and they never looked back.
The Bruins kept pace with the Knights in the opening period, but a North Kawartha goal with just 9 seconds remaining in the opening period put an extra bit of gallop in the visitors’ step.
The Knights would carry over the positive momentum into the second period, as they netted a power play goal just 35 seconds into the action to take a 3-0 lead.
Just over two minutes later, the Knights struck again, extending their lead to 4-0 before the Bruins got their first bit of sustained pressure in the offensive zone courtesy of Robert Freckelton and Aiden Reilly.
However, the Knights would net another goal with just under nine minutes to play in the second period, chasing starting goalie Jacob Gordon from the crease, as he was replaced by Ryan McConkey.
With their backs against the wall, McConkey turned aside some strong scoring chances by the Knights down the stretch in the middle frame.
Stefan Palatsidis scored just over a minute into the third period, as the Bruins broke up the shutout bid by North Kawartha’s Noah Miller. The lone assist on the play was credited to Simon Feig.
However, that would be as close as the Bruins would get, as the Knights rode off into the sunset adding another goal in the third period to make the final score 6-1.
- The Bruins were back in action on Wednesday night in Apsley (after The Standard’s press deadline) for Game 2.
- Game 3 is slated for Uxbridge on Friday, March 8th at 7:45 p.m.
- The action shifts to Apsley for Game 4 on Saturday night, returning to Uxbridge for Game 5 - if necessary - on Monday, March 11th at 8:45 p.m.
- North Kawartha is slated to host Game 6 on Wednesday, March 13th and if needed, the winner-take-all Game 7 will be at the Bear Den at 7:45 p.m. on Friday, March 15th.

UXBRIDGE: The Uxbridge Bruins are moving on to the Cougar Cup Orr Division championship for the first time since 2015, following a four-game sweep of the rival Port Perry MoJacks.
It took overtime in Game 4, on Sunday, February 24th, but Daniel Giorgio provided the series-clinching goal, just over five minutes into the extra frame, to seal a dramatic 6-5 victory for Uxbridge.
After the Bruins opened the series, with a 6-1 thumping of the MoJacks, on Family Day, the series resumed on Thursday, February 21st night in Port Perry. The midweek match-up saw the Bruins rally from a 2-1 deficit in the first period, to score an 8-3 victory.
Justin Bennett scored twice for Uxbridge, with Giorgio, Matthew Hunter, Finn Reeves, Robert Freckelton, Simon Feig and Josh Cammalleri chipping in with singles.
On Friday evening, February 22nd, the action shifted back to the Bear Den for Game 3, with the Bruins looking to take a commanding lead in the best-of-seven series.
Uxbridge opened the scoring, with just over five minutes to play in the first period, when Cole Bremner charged into the slot and pounded a shot past the Port Perry goalie. However, MoJacks captain Ben Sheremeta evened the score with a powerplay goal, late in the frame.
The Bruins got some breathing room in the second period, after Bennett scored to restore the Bruins’ lead. The third period saw Feig and Toby Cooper round out the scoring, and lift Uxbridge to a 4-1 win.
Bruins goalie Ryan McConkey was sensational late in the game, turning aside Port Perry’s Carter Thornton on a penalty shot.
It was do-or-die for the MoJacks, on Sunday afternoon, as the action shifted back to Scugog Arena.
Just as they’d done in Game 2, the MoJacks took a 2-1 lead in the first period, before Feig scored with just 28 seconds remaining, to tie the game through 20 minutes of play.
The teams battled through a back-and-forth second period, that saw the MoJacks regain the lead early, before a powerplay goal by Robert Freckelton evened the score.
The Bruins seized their first lead of the afternoon, when Feig scored just 56 seconds into the third period, but the MoJacks would battle back to knot the game. Near the midpoint of the third, Jackson Savery restored Uxbridge’s advantage, only for Noah Bray to tie the game for the MoJacks, with just over 8 minutes remaining in regulation.
Both goalies, McConkey and Port Perry’s Connor Latchford, were sensational in the late stages of the game, with both making acrobatic saves to keep the game tied and force an overtime period.
Giorgio fought through heavy traffic in front of the net, to tip in a shot by Adam Turner, just over 5 minutes into overtime, to wrap up a wild, back-and-forth Game 4; the latest chapter in the ever-changing Battle of North Durham.
Following the game, Bruins head coach Andrew Langlands praised the MoJacks for the tenacity, and acknowledged his team had found another level to their game in the series, and will hopefully continue to do so, over a long playoff run.
“Even though they were short-staffed today, we knew that Port Perry was going to give us all that they had,” Langlands told The Standard. “They definitely delivered and really pushed us all game. But, our team showed their depth; work ethic and structure all played into this series. We’re going to build on this and buckle down, while we wait for the next series to start, and keep doing what we’ve been doing with our preparation and practice, before we have to play North Kawartha or Lakefield.”
The Cougar Cup series won’t begin any earlier than Monday, March 4th, with the Bruins set to take on the winner of the series between North Kawartha and Lakefield. As of press time, the Knights hold a 3-1 lead in the series.
The Bruins are investigating a fan bus, to travel to games in Apsley. For more information, please check the team’s website or social media accounts.
CRAIG SCHROTER Special to The Standard
KAWARTHA LAKES: A four minute span at the end of the second period was the difference, as the Kingston Voyageurs picked up an 8-4 win, in the last game of the season for the Lindsay Muskies.
There was only one goal in the first period. It went to Kingston’s Cameron Pound as he snapped a shot in from between the face-off circles, at 10:14. The assists went to Adam Kim and Andrew Suriyuth.
In the second period the teams battled back and forth, until a strange series of events took place. With the Vees on a power play they thought they had scored at one point, but the referee closest to the net waved no goal and play continued. About half a minute later play was called, as the Vees were being handed a penalty. During the break, while the Kingston player was heading to the box, the officials gathered at center ice and decided the earlier shot on goal did go in. Kingston was suddenly up 2-0, with the goal being credited to Ryan Gibson, from Bryan Laureigh and Adam Harris. The time of the goal was 12:10. Noah Vandervinne got the Muskies back within one, when he broke in alone and scored, at 14:38, from Brendan Tomilson. The next four minutes though would be the difference in the game. Troy Bowditch scored on a power play, from Suriyuth at 16:57, to make it 3-1. Just 16 seconds later it was Laureigh, from Cameron Bickford and Joel Holtrop. At 17:54 Nick Zarichny scored, from Hunter Leonard and Bowditch.
Then another power play goal came, off the stick of Suriyuth, at 19:46, from Kim and Zarichny, to make it 6-1 heading into the third.
There was a bit of a spark from the Fish in the third. Jake Rauch scored, from Matt King at the 13:17 mark, to make it 6-2. Less than a minute later, Braydon Leeking made it 6-3, from Kalvyn Watson and Brendan Tomilson. Any thoughts of a comeback were dashed though when Kingston scored another pair of goals. Aidan Harris scored for the Vees, from Kim at 15:27, then it was Laureigh, from Zarichny at 16:54. The Muskies added one more at 17:30. That goal went to Josh Weber, from Curtis Trolley and Ryan Gallant.
The game was the final one of the season for each team. Despite the record, there is reason for optimism amongst Muskies fans. The team was one of the youngest in the league, and everyone is eligible to return next year, with another full year of experience under their belt.
The game was well attended, with a large group of fans who had made their way up from Kingston. The win may be a bittersweet one for them, as there are a lot of rumours floating around that the team may move from Kingston this off-season. That indeed would be a sad day, if it comes to pass, as Kingston has always been a solid, and class act in the league.
