NGS Braves midgets in di­vi­sion fi­nals

The Glengarry News - - Sports In The Glens - The News

The NGS Braves rep ‘B’ hockey team, which in­cludes a num­ber of play­ers from the Alexan­dria area as the Glens didn’t ice a team at this level this sea­son, are skat­ing in the UCMHL di­vi­sion fi­nals ver­sus the South Stor­mont Se­lects, with game three of the se­ries set for Thurs­day at 7:30 p.m. in Maxville.

The Braves pre­vailed 5-2 in the March 7 se­ries opener in Maxville, with goals com­ing from Owen Bour­geois, Brady Tan­ner, Ryker Legue, Ky­lan Cole­man, and Tay­lor Met­calfe. Pick­ing up the as­sists were Bour­geois (3), Tan­ner (2), Met­calfe (2), Dylan Seguin (2), Anaick Bes­ner, and Liam MacDonald.

The next night, the se­ries moved to Long Sault, where a win for the Braves would have ended it. NGS got a first-pe­riod unas­sisted goal from Lee Seguin and held that ad­van­tage into the third frame, where the Se­lects drew even. The con­test fin­ished up as a 1-1 tie, to force a third game, with the Braves lead­ing the se­ries three points to one.

NGS needs just a tie on Thurs­day night to claim the east di­vi­sion play­off ti­tle and earn a berth in the league cham­pi­onship se­ries.

Ju­ve­nile hockey sea­son ends

The ju­ve­nile hockey sea­son is over for the NGS Braves and Alexan­dria Glens, as both squads were elim­i­nated in the open­ing round of the play­offs.

The Glens for­feited game one and tied the sec­ond match, 2-2, to see Casselman ad­vance to round two, while the Braves dropped their se­ries to Em­brun.

In the next round, Em­brun plays Clarence, while Casselman tan­gles with Rock­land.

The reg­u­lar sea­son saw the Glens fin­ish fourth (10-0-9-2), while the Braves were sixth (5-1-14-3).

Char-Lan atoms reach round three

The atom ‘B’ Char-Lan Rebels hockey team were tops in the east di­vi­sion dur­ing the reg­u­lar sea­son, sport­ing a record of 19 wins, 2 losses, and three ties. The boys placed five points ahead of sec­ond place South Stor­mont.

Both teams had first-round play­off byes. In the sec­ond stage of the post-sea­son, the Se­lects got past Corn­wall (which had elim­i­nated the Alexan­dria Glens in round one), while the Rebels needed four games to dis­patch South Grenville, five points to three.

That set the stage for South Stor­mont and Char-Lan to meet for the di­vi­sion play­off ti­tle last week­end, where the Se­lects ac­com­plished some­thing they hadn’t done all sea­son – beat the Rebels. And they did it twice, win­ning 2-1 and 4-2.

South Stor­mont moves on to the league fi­nals, to take on the win­ner of the west se­ries, ei­ther Kemptville or Smiths Falls.

The Vikes won the opener 6-3 last Thurs­day, be­fore fall­ing 43 a night later in Winch­ester. On Sun­day in Casselman, the home side pre­vailed 6-4.

The fourth match was set for last night (March 10) in Winch­ester, with the re­main­ing sched­ule as fol­lows: March 12 in Casselman, March 13 in Winch­ester, and March 15 (if needed) in Casselman.
