Stanstead Journal - - FRONT PAGE - James Rioux, spe­cial col­lab­o­ra­tion, Stanstead

The­var­sity boys hockey went 3-1 this past week­end at Ri­d­ley Col­lege, de­feat­ing Rice Memo­rial, St. Michael’s Col­lege and Edge School. Their only loss was 6-4 to Ri­d­ley. The team was un­char­ac­ter­is­ti­cally down 0-5 be­fore crawl­ing back to make it 4-5. How­ever, the come­back was short lived and a very good Ri­d­ley team hung on to win 6-4.

With this show­ing, the team fin­ishes the reg­u­lar sea­son with a 16 and 2 record. Stanstead is ac­tu­ally 1st in the

Bow­ers Di­vi­sion for the first time since our in­au­gu­ral sea­son in 2009, but more im­por­tantly, 1st in the over­all league for the first time ever.
