The Glengarry News - - Sports in the Glens -

BY SEAN BRAY Sports Editor The inau­gu­ral Cru­saders Cup hockey tour­na­ment last Satur­day in Wil­liamstown needed overtime to de­cide mat­ters, with a squad of Char- Lan Dis­trict High School alumni clip­ping the stu­dent team 3-2.

Tied 2-2, the ex­tra ses­sion was in its wan­ing mo­ments, when Ian Mac­Donell banged home the game-win­ning goal, set up by Shane McDonell.

Mac­Donell also had the open­ing tally for the alumni, while Tim McCuaig scored the squad’s sec­ond one. Earn­ing as­sists, re­spec­tively, were John Vipond and Brent Lau­zon. Both mark­ers for the high school team were net­ted by Nat Lafram­boise. His first was unas­sisted, while the sec­ond was set up by Tyler Akins.Other mem­bers of the teen troop were Sam McDougall, Eric Lamarche, An­gus McRae, Ryan Vipond, Ri­ley Ler­oux, Ben Dir­ven, Gil McDonell, Owen Hughes, Ethan Mul­hearn, Grant Craig, Mikey Small, and Brett Lapointe.

The con­test saw sev­eral matchups of fa­ther ver­sus son, or in the case of the Vipond clan, fa­ther against sons, as dad John was on one side, while his young off­spring, Ryan and Bren­dan suited up for the school. The game also fea­tured a col­li­sion of Sandi­lands, dad Neil ver­sus son Rod­die, as well as see­ing young An­gus McRae on the op­po­site side to dad Bruce.

Char-Lan DHS vice-prin­ci­pal Jen­nifer Ma­cLach­lan says the Char- Lan ju­nior ‘ B’ Rebels do­nated the Cup for what is planned to be an an­nual event.

This year’s game was played Feb. 7, prior to the Rebels’ match. Ma­cLach­lan notes the Cru­saders Cup is all part of build­ing school spirit.
