Stampede up for intense' battle
By DEBBIE JAMIESON
Queenstown's Southern Stampede
ice hockey team is sitting at the
top of the league table heading
into this weekend's grudge match
against last year's champions the
Canterbury Red Devils.
Coach Steve Reid said the team
were sharing top of the table with
Botany Swarm but had played six
games to Swarm's eight.
There were only four points
separating the top four teams and
the Red Devils were one point
The last time the two teams met
was at the league finals in
Queenstown last year with the
Red Devils taking the win
following a controversial penalty
shoot out decision.
''Out of all the teams Canterbury
and Stampede play the most
physical brand of hockey,'' Reid
said. ''It will be a tough, physical
battle. We're the top two conten-
ders for the league this year and it
will be pretty intense.''
Reid says spectators need to be
watching for great performances
by the ''young guys'' in the
Stampede: Lachlan Frear, Max
Macharg and Callum Burns who
were all punching well above
their weight in the team.
''In their individual roles they
create so much enthusiasm in the
team everyone else feeds off
them,'' he said.
With a vocal home crowd behind
them it is hoped the Stampede will
come out firing after suffering a
drubbing at the hands of the
Dunedin Thunder in the first
match last weekend with a 7-1
final score. However, they came
back to win 7-5 on Sunday.
Reid said Saturday's loss was
unlucky, with the puck not falling
the team's way along with a
failure to stick to the game plan.
''Full credit to them -- they made
the most of any opportunities.
''We didn't need to reinvent the
wheel. We just took a really good
look at ourselves and we came out
ready to play [on Sunday].''
The Thunder clawed back into the
game but not enough to win.

First of all I was kind of curious as to
how they'd heard me, being all the way
Just day three after releasing
her first single online on June
7, talented young Queenstown
singer songwriter Holly
sound had been picked up by a
Californian radio station.
The 19-year-old was contacted by
an Indie-style radio station from
California asking if they could
feature her as one of their regular
The song also received 3000 plays
online within three days.
She had yet to confirm any
arrangements, but Arrowsmith
said it was exciting news.
''First of all I was kind of curious
as to how they'd heard me, being
all the way over there. I'm just
excited to hear my music is going
to be played.''
The rising young folk-blues singer
stole the hearts of last year's
Songstars audience with the
moving original number and
as part of her winning prize
she released her first album,
an EP (extended play album),
to a packed house of about 250
people at the St Peter's
Church hall on Friday night.
''I had so much fun and the crowd
was really great. They had such
good energy,'' she said.
She has also been approached to
play at Dunedin's Samstock
Festival and the Hagley Park
Wine and Food Festival, both in
