Glens climb standings
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).
