Local roller hockey players to play for U.S. teams at world championships

— LINCOLN, Neb. — Though they didn’t do it as members of the Cumberland Raiders, local roller hockey standouts Scott Ferguson and Miranda Wiseman were selected to play for the national team and Pat Ferguson earned a coaching honor on Team USA after competing with the Boyertown Phantoms at the 2014 Rink Hockey National Championships held earlier this month in Lincoln, Neb.

Both Fergusons will travel to Montevideo, Uruguay to take part in the World Championships Nov. 15-22. Wiseman has a little shorter wait for the ladies tournament which is set for Oct. 25-Nov. 1 in Tourcoing, France.

Pat and Scott Ferguson joined other local males in teaming up with Boyertown (Pa.) at the national tournament after there was insufficient turnout for a separate Cumberland team. The Fergusons were a part of the World Class Division team that finished fifth out of six teams with a record of 1-3-1.

Ryan and Nathan Shryock played for the 16U team that won the gold medal with a 4-0-1 record. Nathan also played for the 14U squad that brought home a silver medal at 4-1.

Wiseman participated with the Anchorage, Alaska, team that picked up a silver medal after going 3-1. She had a goal and an assist during her team’s 4-3 loss to Bremerton (Wash.) in the finals and had seven goals and one assist in four tournament games.

Wiseman was named most valuable player for leading her team to the bronze in the Co-Ed Division, scoring three goals and handing out an assist. She scored twice in the gold medal match, a 4-3 win over Modesto (Calif.) 

The Fergusons combined for three goals and four assists in the World Class Division. Scott scored all three of the goals and added two assists, and Pat had the other two assists.

Nathan Shryock had 10 goals and four assists in five games in the 14U division. He notched a goal and an assist during a 3-2 loss to Bremerton in the finals. His three goals and two assists helped the 16U team to a 2-0 win over Bremerton and a gold medal. Ryan Shryock had a goal and an assist on his way to a gold medal.

Gary Hendrickson, a long-time player and official, was recognized with the Billy Sisson Award for his dedication to the advancement of ball roller hockey. Hendrickson began as a player before moving to refereeing in the mid-1970s in a career that spanned more than 50 years.
