Ice racing season opens in Moultonborough

The Lakes Region Ice Racing Club opened the 2013 season of automobile, oval track ice racing last Sunday on Lee Pond. The Milton ice racing club did not have enough ice to race and many of their members traveled to the Lakes Region to race. Lots of cars and lots of fans made for a great show. Competitors raced in the following divisions: juniors, four-cyclinder, V8 stock and modifieds.
Adam Cahoon, driving his bright orange Ollie's Garage number 99 Monte Carlo, won the V8 stock division. Moultonborough's Jackie Martel won the junior division. Rick Martel of Moultonborough took first in the modified race. In the four-cylinder competition, Tim Chase, driving last year's championship-winning number 40 MR2, took the checkered flag.
The Club's Latchkey Cup to benefit the Norris Cotton Cancer Center is scheduled for next Saturday. Area drivers will gather Saturday at 10 a.m. to race in the 29th annual cup. Check the club's website at www.LakesRegionIceRacingClub.com or facebook page for the latest race/ice status, information about coming events, and for race photos and video.

Belmont-Gilford hockey team eager for Saturday's re-match v. Berlin

After driving to Berlin on Wednesday to suffer a 5-6 loss, the Belmont-Gilford hockey team is eager to return the favor when Berlin comes to the Laconia Ice Arena on Saturday afternoon.
Referring to the undefeated Berlin, Belmon-Gilford coach Jay Londer said, "They've a very good team, there's a reason they're number one." All the goals in the back-and-forth game were scored during penalties, said Londer, who added that the loss came after a long bus ride and in a hostile environment. He looks forward to facing Berlin on his home ice on Saturday, and the opportunity to smear Berlin's pristine record. "We didn't play our best game and we only lost by one goal," he said. "We need to be tougher on the pucks and we need to finish our checks on Saturday."
Londer added that he hoped to see a crowd of several hundred cheering on the Bulldogs on Saturday. The game begins at 4:40 p.m., and he noted that Belmont or Gilford high school students who wear their school colors won't be charged admission.
