The Glengarry News - - Sports In The Glen -

BY SEAN BRAY Sports Ed­i­tor It’s back to busi­ness for the county’s ju­nior ‘B’ hockey teams this week, as the boys will be look­ing to shake off any rust from the Christ­mas break and push for a strong fin­ish to the CCHL2 sea­son.

The Alexan­dria Glens last saw game ac­tion on Dec. 21, when the team fell 3-2 to the Met­calfe Jets at the Glen­garry Sports Palace.

Chris­tian Bueti ac­counted for both Alexan­dria goals, as Ni­co­las Rousseau took the loss in net, de­spite a 52-save per­for­mance.

Jakob Brunette had two as­sists, with the other helps go­ing to Brady En­man and the team’s lead­ing point-get­ter Bran­don McCul­loch.

The game that had been sched­uled for Dec. 18 in Clarence and was post­poned due to poor weather, has been resched­uled to the last week of the sea­son, to be played Feb. 22.

Alexan­dria will re­sume play this week fac­ing a tough op­po­nent Thurs­day night in Cas­sel­man, as the Vik­ings sports a 22-8-2-1 record and sec­ond place in the divi­sion.

Game time for the Jan. 5 con­test is set for 7:30 p.m.

Next home ac­tion at the G.S.P. is booked for Fri­day, Jan. 6, with the Brockville Tikis (12-21-1-0) pro­vid­ing the op­po­si­tion. First puck drop should be shortly af­ter 8 p.m.

The Glens’ record with 31 games in the books (and 17 re­main­ing) is 14-16-0-1 for 29 points and fifth in the Martin Divi­sion. Clarence sits one point bet­ter, while Winch­ester trails by two

Char-Lan hop­ing for bet­ter re­sults

The Rebels ended the 2016 por­tion of their sched­ule mired in an 11-game los­ing slide with just one point to show for their ef­forts over the stretch.

Char-Lan (5-22-1-1) will start the new year on Satur­day, Jan. 7, with a home-ice match ver­sus the Athens Aeros (16-9-3-4). Game time at the Char- Lan Rec. Cen­tre in Wil­liamstown is set for 8 p.m.

On Sun­day, the boys are slated to skate into Clarence for a 2:15 p.m. con­test.

Next Tues­day (Jan. 10), Char-Lan will host a resched­uled match with the Winch­ester Hawks (13-16-1-1). Game time will be 8:15 p.m. This con­test had orig­i­nally been slated for Dec. 17, but was post­poned due to weather.

Lead­ing the Rebels offence thus far this sea­son is Hunter Duschesne, with 32 points. He’s fol­lowed on the points ta­ble by Sam Fer­land (27) and Matthew Gre­goire (24).
