The Glengarry News - - Sports In The Glens -

Holy Trin­ity boys hockey team player Cole Bes­ner notched a hat trick in Jan. 12 SDGAA ac­tion in Mor­ris­burg ver­sus La Ci­tadelle, pac­ing his Fal­cons to a 5-0 tri­umph over Les Pa­tri­otes. Be­tween the pipes, Austin Lavergne back­stopped the shutout.

HT’s other game on the day fin­ished up with the same score, ex­cept it was in favour of North Dun­das. Char-Lan and GDHS had byes for this tour­na­ment. Other re­sults: Sr. Joseph’s 4 vs Se­away 2, Se­away 2 vs North Dun­das 2, St. Joseph’s 5 vs La Ci­tadelle 0.

The Pan­thers and Cru­saders both re­main per­fect, at 3-0 and 2-0 re­spec­tively in the stand­ings. Sev­eral teams have four games in the books, in­clud­ing North Dun­das, with a record of 2-1-1.

Next league tour­ney is set for Wil­liamstown, of Tues­day, Feb. 7.

Gaels ju­nior suf­fer first loss

An un­beaten record stands no more for the ju­nior boys bas­ket­ball team from GDHS, as the Gaels were, last Thurs­day on their home court, hum­bled by the vis­it­ing St. Joseph’s Pan­thers, 54-29.

Shel­don MacCal­lum was the top point-get­ter for the home side, record­ing 8 points, while Odin Mar­furt-Break­endridge added 7. The ju­nior Gaels are now 5-1 on the season. The senior squad also fell, drop­ping a 59-33 de­ci­sion to the Pan­thers.

Bas­ket­ball sched­ule dis­rupted

Bus can­cel­la­tions last Wed­nes­day forced the reschedul­ing of SDGAA boys bas­ket­ball matches slated to be played at Char-Lan DHS.

In­stead, the Cru­saders var­sity squad will now host L’Her­itage on Feb. 8 and St. Lawrence a day later, re­ports coach Katie Dana­herMcDonel­l.

Dis­rup­tions con­tin­ued yes­ter­day, Jan, 17, as, de­spite sunny skies, school buses were can­celled across the re­gion. Sched­uled games for GDHS, Char-Lan, and Tagwi were post­poned as a re­sult.

Holy Trin­ity hosts to­day

The last high school bas­ket­ball matches be­fore the two-week break for ex­ams will see Holy Trin­ity’s ju­nior and senior boys teams en­ter­tain St. Lawrence to­day, start­ing at 1 p.m., at the Fal­cons’ Nest.

Hockey season ends for Col­lette

Mart­in­town’s Kyle Col­lette has seen his hockey season come to an end, after sus­tain­ing a shoul­der in­jury at a re­cent tour­na­ment in Bos­ton.

The mem­ber of the Syra­cuse (N.Y.) Stars of the USPHL was hav­ing a stel­lar season, with 32 points in 24 games. Of his 13 goals, 6 were gamewin­ners.

He ex­plains that he got tripped dur­ing the game, fall­ing into the boards and then hav­ing an­other player land on him. As a re­sult, Col­lette’s shoul­der was sep­a­rated and will re­quire surgery. The only bright point to the week­end was that his par­ents were able to at­tend to see him play.

Col­lette says he has a fol­low-up ap­point­ment with a sports or­thopaedic doc­tor this week and is hop­ing for a mir­a­cle that could get him back on the ice sooner than ex­pected.

Last season he skated with the CCHL2 cham­pion Cas­sel­man Vik­ings. He will turn 19 later this month.
