La médaille de bronze au Championnat National U16 Garçon

Les joueurs U16 de La Machine ont remporté la médaille de
bronze au Championnat National de Calgary en Alberta, le 27 mai dernier. Ils
ont battu, 11-9, l’équipe de la Saskatchewan qui d’ailleurs ont été les
champions des deux dernières années.

Sans oublier, que les parents des joueurs et les fidèles
supporters de La Machine regardaient de la maison ce match serré via diffusion
en directe.

Merci à la diffusion en directe de Waterpolo Canada qui nous
a permis d’entendre le père de Luka Dabic crier « Nage Luca, NAGE » et Marin,
coach, dire « Lance le ballon, lance le ballon !! »

Quelques fiers supporters étaient présents à l’aéroport
Pierre-Elliott-Trudeau pour accueillir les athlètes et coach dimanche dernier,
le 28 mai 2017 à 18h30.


Bronze at the Nationals Finals for the U16 Boys!

The Machine U16 boys got bronze at the National Championship Finals in Calgary, Alberta on Saturday, May 27, 2017. They beat Saskatchewan, the the two-time defending champions, 11-9 in a tight match that was closely followed by parents back home on Live Stream.

The Live Stream was awesome. We could hear Luka Dabic’s  dad yelling “Swim, Luca, SWIM!!!”  from 3,500 km away, as well as Marin shouting  “Lance le ballon, lance le ballon!!!!”

A small but enthusiastic band of well-wishers was at Pierre Elliott Trudeau airport to greet the boys upon their return to Montreal, on Sunday, May 28 at 6:30 PM.  

Congratulations to the entire team, including coaches Marin Thérien and Tyler Russ-Hoog, and all the athletes, including Luka Ignjatovic, Alex Zaharkevich, Liam Masley, Leno Salamon, Edourdo Falluh, Philippe Novikov, Nathan Salehi, Guillaume Brulé-Grenier, Luka Dabic and Sam Hachem.

Go Machine Go!

Machine Game on Live Stream Today 4 PM

Synopsis of Upcoming Championship from Water Polo Canada:

  
“The boys’ division will have three teams that competed at the last year’s National Finals in Montreal; Saskatchewan, Mavericks, and Pacific Storm. 

Pacific Storm and Mavericks Black are the favourites to meet in the finals. To knock off the Mavericks seems like a tall task this year, as no team has come within five goals of them all year. 

Storm has looked very strong in their own right, with just one setback on the year to Saskatchewan. Storm did little to let that loss dampen their spirits, as they won their other five games against Sask, including two in the playoffs. 

Saskatchewan are the two-time defending champions, but they will be in tough to achieve an NCL three-peat, likely requiring wins over Mavericks and Storm to pull off the feat. 

The 4th entry are the Montreal Machine. In their first year as a club and in the NCL, Machine had a very strong run during the regular season in the Eastern Conference, finishing 3rd in the Quebec division, and 4th overall. Those results were already a great achievement for Machine, but they surpassed all expectations at the Eastern Championships by winning the silver medal and qualifying for the National Finals. Now the Machine sit just two wins away from a National Championship.” 






Machine Players Awarded MVP & MVG

Two Machine players got top awards at the Eastern Canadian Championships in Gatineau, Quebec on May 12-14, 2017. 

Leno Salamon bagged Most Valuable Player (MVP) for the second year running, while Gavin Williams got Most Valuable Goalie (MVG). 

Congratulations to you both! 



What a year!

Une longue saison pour nos gars 14U mais beaucoup d’aide! Bravo à tous! 

It was a long season for our U14 boys, but what a great finish with a GOLD in the Eastern Conference Finals.  Congratulations to all!


Featured Player: Luca Ignjatovic #8

Our trustworthy and long-standing team captain Luka Ignjatovic wears cap #8 and started playing water polo at age six for club C.A.S.O. 

Last year, Luka and his team placed second overall in the Eastern Conference Finals in the 14 and under category, and, this year, we look forward to seeing Luka and the team participate in the National  Championships May 26-27, 2017 in Calgary, Alberta.

Not just a great player, Luka successfully juggles water polo, his academic commitments at Collège Sainte-Anne, refereeing at tournaments, and takes our Montreal Machine flag to various points around the globe in his spare time. 



En route vers Calgary - notre capitaine de longue date et digne de
confiance Luka Ignatovic porte le #8 et a commencé à jouer au waterpolo à
l’âge de 6 ans pour le club C.A.S.O. L’année dernière, Luka et son
équipe ont terminé deuxième au classement général dans la finale de
l’Est au niveau 14 ans et moins, et cette année, nous verrons Luka et
son équipe, la Machine de Montréal, participer aux Championnats
Nationaux les 26 au 27 mai prochains à Calgary. Luka a été extrêmement
impliqué dans l’univers du waterpolo cette année en participant à la LCC
ainsi qu’à la Ligue des Pamplemousses en tant qu’arbitre. Il est non
seulement un joueur calculé, Luka jongle aussi avec succès entre le
waterpolo et ses engagements académiques au Collège Sainte-Anne. Luka a
fait voyager le drapeau de la Machine de Montréal à travers la planète.
