Glens climb stand­ings

The Glengarry News - - Sports in the Glens - Week nine ac­tion will open with the Glens (8-6-1-1) skat­ing

BY SEAN BRAY Sports Ed­i­tor The Alexan­dria Glens ju­nior ‘B’ hockey team had an­other three­p­oint week­end, help­ing the team move into a third-place tie with Char-Lan, in the Martin Di­vi­sion stand­ings.

The squad skated in back-to­back home games last week­end, in­clud­ing a 4-0 blank­ing of the Ot­tawa West Golden Knights on Fri­day night, when goal­tender Ni­co­las Rousseau turned aside 46 shots.

Dy­lan Stacey, Math­ieu Par­ent, Reggy St-Surin, and Mav­er­ick Bax­trom had the goals, with as­sists cred­ited to Par­ent, Bax­trom, Is­mail Pru­dent, Nathan Sauve, and Stacey.

Satur­day evening saw Winch­ester at the Palace, where a shootout was needed to de­cide mat­ters. The Hawks scored twice, while the Glens were stymied, as Winch­ester pre­vailed in what went into the books as a 5-4 game.

Alexan­dria opened the scor­ing of this topsy-turvy con­test, when Mikael Gibault found the tar­get, just 58 sec­onds in, as­sisted by StSurin and Par­ent.

Winch­ester re­sponded with a pair to snag the lead be­fore the end of the pe­riod. Just 1:46 into the sec­ond stanza, Lochlan Mac­Don­ald equal­ized, set up by Nolan Guertin and Sauve.

The teams con­tin­ued the trade goals twice more, with the Glens tal­lies net­ted by St-Surin (shorthanded) and Stacey (with un­der two min­utes left in the game). As­sists went to Stacey, Gibault, and Bax­trom.

Bren­nan Nadeau took the loss in net, de­spite mak­ing 33 saves. on home ice at the Palace, on Fri­day, Nov. 9, at 8 p.m, when the Cas­sel­man Vik­ings (13-3) will be in town.

The boys are also slated to play Nov. 11 in Athens (4-8-2-1).
