Junior ‘B’ Glens skate to weekend split
BY SEAN BRAY Sports Editor Alexandria’s CCHL2 hockey team skated to a pair of 5-2 decisions last weekend, including a win on home ice Saturday.
The previously unscheduled game was a continuation, of sorts, from a week-one contest that was stopped after one period of play due to ice issues at the league’s season-opening showcase event.
At the time, the Glens led the Brockville Tikis 3-0, so that score was put onto the scoreboard for the Nov. 11 action, though the teams opted to play three more periods, thus essentially playing a four-period game.
Adam Paquette, Nash McLean, and Mikael Gibault had the goals in the previous attempt at this game, with Kevin Howson and Jakob Brunette adding markers last weekend.
On the evening previous, the boys were on the road in Renfrew, where Brunette and Howson had the markers in a 5-2 loss to the Timberwolves.
The same duo also had the only Alexandria assists in the game, while notching helpers in the two-stage contest completed Saturday were Innis MacLeod, David Chaloux, Gibeault, Alexandre Elie, Victor Bisson, Brunette, and Sam Lacroix.
Brennan Nadeau was tagged with the Friday-night loss, facing 32 shots, while Nicolas Rousseau was credited with the win the next evening, saving 23 pucks directed his way.
The defeat in Renfrew snapped a fourgame winning streak for the Glens
Alexandria sports a .550 record, with 10 wins, 8 regulation losses, 1 overtime loss, and 1 shootout loss, good for fifth place in the CCHL2 Martin Division standings.
The boys are -2 on goal differential through 20 games this season.
Looking ahead, the Glens are scheduled to play Thursday (Nov. 16) in Casselman, against the second- place Vikings (16-2-2-0). Game time is set for 7:30 p.m.
There’s no Friday home game this weekend, with the boys instead playing Saturday night at the Palace. The Perth Blue Wings (9-11-2-0) are slated to provide the opposition. Start time will be 8 p.m.
