Glens drop two at show­case

The Glengarry News - - Sports In The Glens - – Sean Bray

De­spite a solid ef­fort by rookie goal­tender Ni­cholas Rousseau of North Lan­caster, the Alexan­dria Glens ju­nior ‘B’ hockey club dropped both of its matches at the CCHL2 show­case last week­end.

The 17-year-old Rousseau made 31 saves in a 4-2 loss to the Rich­mond Roy­als on Mon­day. Two days ear­lier he en­tered the game at the 23:01 mark, tak­ing over for start­ing net­min­der Drew Carle, who al­lowed four goals on 15 shots, in what went into the books as a 5-1 loss to the Arn­prior Pack­ers. Rousseau stopped 20 of 21 the rest of the way and fin­ished the week­end with 3.18 goals against av­er­age and a 0.911 save per­cent­age.

Goal scor­ers on the week­end were Austin Ladouceur, Youssef Chadli, and Tan­ner Wild­ing.

This week, the Glens are booked to play Thurs­day in Cas­sel­man. Next Tues­day, the boys will skate on the road against the Ot­tawa Cana­di­ans, be­fore Alexan­dria’s home opener on Sept. 16.
