TWO local soccer players -- including the outgoing University of Manitoba captain -- will wear Canada's colours at the upcoming World University Summer Games in Russia.

Julie Lafreniere, 22, and Jackie Tessier were named to the 20-woman Canadian FISU womens' soccer roster on Thursday. They will compete for Canada at the 27th Summer Universiade in Kazan, which runs from July 6-17.

It's the first time for Lafreniere, who wrapped up her five-year Bisons career last season. She is just the second Bisons women's soccer player to join the University Games team. The first, Olympian Desiree Scott, played in the 2007 and 2009 Games.

Tessier came up playing for the Bonivital Flames and the Manitoba provincial program and now plays for Queen's University,

The Canadian squad will open their tournament with a preliminary Pool B game against Mexico on July 5, and will face Ireland on July 7 and China on July 9.

 

St. Malo hosting Keystone Cup

THE community of St. Malo is gearing up for big festivities as the Keystone Cup Junior B hockey tournament opened Thursday, with events continuing through Sunday.

While the tournament -- which features qualifying teams from each Western Canadian province and the host St. Malo Warriors -- features lots of hockey, there are also plans to have music, games and other activities next to the arena.

This year marks the eighth time that Manitoba has hosted the Keystone Cup championship.

St. Malo is located along Highway 59, approximately 45 minutes south of Winnipeg.

Tickets and a full schedule are available online at www.keystonecup.ca.
