Split results for Jr. ‘B’ Glens
Third time lucky, the Alexandria Glens of the CCHL2 finally have a home-ice win, with a 4-2 victory over the Embrun Panthers.
For the third straight week, the Glens opened with a lead at the Glengarry Sports Palace, but this time the boys were able to keep their foot on the gas, as Nicolas Rousseau made 31 saves for the win.
Reggy St-Surin scored the game-winning tally 5:24 into the second stanza, set up by Samuel Lacroix and Austin Ladouceur. Otto Thomas, from Adam Paquette and Mikael Gibault, added the insurance later in the frame. Scoring earlier were Shayne Dickie and Gibault, on assists from Mathieu Parent (2), Adam Porter, and Paquette.
Saturday afternoon in Arnprior, Brennan Nadeau’s 34 saves weren’t enough, as the Glens fell to the Packers 7-5. Ladouceur marked a pair for Alexandria, with the others netted by Porter, Braden Legue (first career junior hockey goal), and Thomas. Helpers went to Maverick Baxtrom (2), Thomas, Lochlan MacDonald, and Lacroix.
With a sub-. 500 record at 3- 4 on the season, the Glens sit in the
middle of the division standings, fourth of eight teams.
Through four weeks of play, Alexandria
handily leads the league in penalty minutes, with 307.
Second is Renfrew, at 215, while no other squad exceeds 200.
On a per-game basis, the Glens are averaging 44 PIM, while the Timberwolves, who have played two more games, sit at 24 PIM.
This week’s action for the Alexandria squad
was scheduled to begin last night, Oct. 9, on the road, against the unbeaten Ottawa Jr. Canadians.
On Sunday, the boys will travel to Richmond, for their third straight road contest.
Note, there is no home game this weekend. Next Palace action will be Oct. 21.
