Glens sea­son in re­view

The Glengarry News - - Sports In The Glens - – Sean Bray

The Alexan­dria ju­nior ‘ B’ Glens saw their sea­son come to an end re­cently, as the boys were un­cer­e­mo­ni­ously dumped by the Winch­ester Hawks in the first round of the EOJHL play­offs.

The Glens placed sec­ond dur­ing the reg­u­lar sea­son, with 23 wins, 14 reg­u­la­tion losses, and 3 shootout losses.

In points, though, they were tied with Winch­ester at 49. Alexan­dria got sec­ond spot (and home- ice ad­van­tage for the play­offs) on the tie-break­ing for­mula.

Af­ter win­ning the open­ing game 4-3 on home ice, the Glens dropped a pair of over­time de­ci­sions and another in reg­u­la­tion to fall be­hind 3-1 in the se­ries.

With their backs against the wall in game five, the boys mus­tered a 5-4 win, be­fore bow­ing out in a lop­sided af­fair, 6-1.

Look­ing back on the sea­son, rookie head coach Stephan Nadeau says the team was “real- ly pleased.

“Our goal at the be­gin­ning of the sea­son was to make the play­offs, which we ac­com­plished. We had many new, young faces on the team this year, and they all ad­justed re­ally well to ju­nior ‘B’ hockey.

“Look­ing ahead, we are an­tic­i­pat­ing a pros­per­ous sea­son next sea­son, based on this year’s per­for­mance and with the year of ex­pe­ri­ence” un­der the belts of the play­ers

Mov­ing to­wards next sea­son, “We need to im­prove to be a bet­ter team, and we will be work­ing hard to make sure that we fill those needs,” adds the coach.

Amongst the lo­cal con­tin­gent on the squad, Dalkeith na­tive Con­nor MacLeod was sec­ond in team scor­ing this sea­son, with 51 points. Bradley Gab­bour topped the list with 64.
