Les Rapi­des take tier two ti­tle

The Glengarry News - - Sports In The Glens -

BY SEAN BRAY Sports Editor Alexandria’s École sec­ondaire catholique Le Re­lais added another hockey award to its tro­phy case last week, as Les Rapi­des nabbed the Precott-Rus­sell high school boys hockey league tier two cham­pi­onship.

The ti­tle game was a 4-1 vic­tory over CIHA, with goals net­ted by Chloé Devine (as­sisted by Dy­lan Séguin and Ni­cholas Dupuis), Mathieu Sabourin ( Jenna Séguin and Anaik Bes­ner), Mathieu Giroux (Ni­cholas Dupuis and C. Devine), and Dupuis (Anaik Bes­ner).

To reach the ti­tle tilt at the Feb. 18 com­pe­ti­tion, Les Rapi­des over­pow­ered Le Som­met 5-3 in the semi­fi­nal.

Dy­lan Séguin led the charge in this con­test, chalk­ing up five points. He as­sisted on three tal­lies and scored two him­self. Mathieu Sabourin also hit the tar­get twice, with the other tally notched by Dupuis.

Ja­cob Levert recorded three as­sists, the other go­ing to J. Séguin, Alexan­dre Par­enteau, and Pas­cal Théorêt.

Dy­lan Séguin, a de­fence­man, fin­ished the year as top point-get­ter in the league.

Head coach Do­minic Dé­coeur praises his goal­tender, Ni­co­las Rousseau, de­scrib­ing the net­min­der as a qual­ity per­former who stood tall.

This year’s squad in­cludes two girls, Jenna Séguin and Chloé Devine, both of whom con­trib­uted in the play­off win and through­out the sea­son.

Jenna is pri­mar­ily a de­fence­man, who also can play right wing, while Chloé fits into any of the three for­ward roles.

Coach Dé­coeur ex­pects the girls will con­tinue to con­trib­ute to the squad’s suc­cess at the Tournoi Franco-On­tarien, in early spring.

The coach adds that his mes­sage all sea­son has been that “ev­ery player is an im­por­tant piece of the puz­zle.”

At the pro­vin­cial event in April, “It will be as it's al­ways been, about each in­di­vid­ual push­ing in the same di­rec­tion to achieve our goal. We want to re­peat. That's the goal. But we'll fo­cus on the process as we move for­ward.”
