Patriots set out to make their rounds
The new season for AAA male collegial hockey is now underway. The St. Laurent Patriots, with their sharpened skates and shots, got things started with a good showing despite some setbacks.
The very first game was held on September 23. St. Laurent faced André-laurendeau, winning a first victory 5-4, after a shootout. The Patriots then beat Lionel-groulx (5-2), before coming into some setbacks, thanks to SorelTracy (8-3 then 6-3). They however succeeded with two wins against Harrington, with scores of 6-4 then 3-2.
In the general rankings, St. Laurent, SorelTracy and André-laurendeau share the top spot, with 8 points each.
Defense will have to tighten its ranks, because to date the St. Laurent lineup has more goals conceded than scored.
Sorel-tracy, which had an excellent season last year, has so far gotten off to a great start with very good preliminary results. To be continued.
The Patriots started their season with both
highs and lows.
