Glens season in review
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.
