Le Re­lais boys skate past CIAH

The Glengarry News - - Sports in the Glens -

Le Re­lais’ boys hockey team scored a 4-2 vic­tory over the Rock­land­based hockey academy, CIAH, in Feb. 5 Prescott-Rus­sell league play.

Marks­men were Austin Ladouceur, Dy­lan Seguin, Bran­don Lau­zon, and Ja­cob Levert. Earn­ing as­sists were Seguin, Mathieu Sabourin, Nico Rousseau, Alexan­dre Par­enteau, Ni­cholas Dupuis, Pas­cal The­o­ret, and Mathieu Giroux. The win se­cured first place for Les Rapi­des, who will next take on the fourth seed on Feb. 17, with the goal of com­pet­ing in the fi­nal match later that same day.

Head coach Do­minic De­coeur says, “Right now, I re­ally be­lieve what sep­a­rates our­selves from the other teams is our work ethic and com­mit­ment. Also, Nico Rousseau is just stel­lar. We know if we score two to three goals, we have a good chance to win.”

Three of the team’s lead­ers aren’t cur­rently play­ing with the squad, only prac­tis­ing with the boys, as their fo­cus is with their re­spec­tive league teams. Kieran Devine skates for the ju­nior ‘A’ group in Val­ley­field, Pierre-Luc Sabourin plays for the ju­nior ‘B’ Glens, and Phil Veilleux is a mem­ber of the ju­nior ‘B’ Char-Lan Rebels. When­ever their league sea­sons wrap up, they will suit up for Les Rapi­des full time, likely bol­ster­ing the squad some­time in March for the team’s run at the Franco tour­na­ment.

De­coeur adds, “That will bring a whole new dy­namic to the team. We ex­pect big things from these guys. Along with Dy­lan Seguin, they're great lead­ers.”

Le Re­lais has a home ex­hi­bi­tion match booked for March 6 at 2 p.m. at the Glen­garry Sports Palace in Alexandria.
