Ju­nior ‘A’ hockey ri­vals to col­lide at GSP

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

Alexan­dria will again host ju­nior ‘A’ hockey ac­tion, as the Hawkesbury Hawks and Corn­wall Colts are booked to bat­tle on Fri­day, Nov. 17, with open­ing puck drop set for 8 p.m.

The Hawks have been with­out a home for much of the sea­son to date, bumped from their digs up north due to ice and air qual­ity prob­lems.

Hawkesbury is un­beaten this year at the Glen­garry Sports Palace, hav­ing won both pre­vi­ous games.

The up­com­ing con­test will fea­ture plenty of county tal­ent, in­clud­ing Hawks rookie Kieran Craig, who’s found the net seven times in 22 games. Craig, a cen­tre­man, hails from Alexan­dria.

The Corn­wall crew too fea­tures Glen­gar­ri­ans. Among them are Wil­liamstown broth­ers Kee­gan and Ethan Mul­hearn, both of whom play the cen­tre po­si­tion. The Colts also have de­fence­man Ben­jamin Dir­ven, of Bainsville, and blue liner Rod­die Sandi­lands, from Wil­liamstown.

De­spite be­ing home­less, the Hawks have iced one of the bet­ter CCHL records to date, en­ter­ing play this week ranked sec­ond in the Yz­er­man Di­vi­sion, with 15 wins and 8 losses.

Corn­wall is 12- 11- 3, good for fourth in the di­vi­sion.

Hawkesbury is com­ing off a 4-2 win last Sun­day in Na­van, while the Colts last dropped a 2-1 over­time de­ci­sion in Brockville.

Corn­wall has a home game Thurs­day night (Nov. 16), host­ing Car­leton Place at 7:30 p.m., be­fore mak­ing the trek to Alexan­dria for Fri­day evening’s match-up with the Hawks.

The Palace is also sched­uled to host Hawkesbury’s ju­nior ‘A’ team on Nov. 26 and Dec. 15, with the Hawks’ other “home” games played in Van­kleek Hill. –
