The Glengarry News - - The Opinion Page - Sean Bray

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.
