Char-Lan Rebels stop skid

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

On Satur­day night in Wil­liamstown, a 13-game los­ing streak came to an end, as the Char-Lan ju­nior ‘B’ Rebels found the win col­umn for the first time in more than two months.

Rebs rookie goal­tender Grant Craig made 51 saves, as his team pre­vailed 5-2 over the vis­it­ing Prescott Fly­ers.

Scor­ing for Char-Lan were Matthew Har­ring­ton, Hunter Duschesne, Ryan Vipond, Joseph Sam­son, and Derek Lis­ter. As­sists went to Har­ring­ton, An­drew Mercer, Ni­cholas Al­ba­nis, Matthew Gre­goire, Sam Fer­land, and Pierre-Luc Sabourin, and Tyren Boots.

Sadly, the win­ning streak ended abruptly the next day in Athens, where the boys were hum­bled 8-2 by the Aeros.

In­ter­est­ingly, this was the same team that the week pre­vi­ous the Rebels played to an 8-6 over­time loss in Wil­liamstown. It was a game that Char-Lan led in the third period, with a win within reach.

The same was not the case on the road, as the Aeros took con­trol early. Athens built a 4-0 lead by the four-minute mark of the sec­ond period, chas­ing Kyle Martelle from the Char-Lan net.

The Rebels got goals from Fer­land and U18 call-up Liam MacDon­ald, with as­sists from Gre­goire (2) and Vipond.

This week, the boys will skate into Cas­sel­man for a Thurs­day night af­fair, at 7:30 p.m. On Satur­day, Char-Lan will host the Alexan­dria Glens at 8 p.m.
