Atom Rebels thrash Corn­wall, top league

The Glengarry News - - Sports In The Glens -

BY SEAN BRAY Sports Ed­i­tor Char- Lan’s atom ‘ B’ Rebels capped off their reg­u­lar-sea­son play on home ice last week, thrash­ing the visiting Corn­wall Colts 6-1, as the squad fin­ished atop the UCMHL stand­ings.

De­spite the Rebs hold­ing a ter­ri­to­rial edge in play through the early go­ing of the March 1 match, it was Corn­wall that cracked the goose eggs on the score­board.

In­side the last minute of the first pe­riod, Char-Lan drew even when Bryce Cur­rier and Owen Cor­put set up Cam­den Mc­Cuaig in the slot.

The sec­ond pe­riod saw unas­sisted tal­lies from Liam Gray and Cor­put.

Gray, from Gill Mc­Don­ald and Hay­den Mader, found the back of the Corn­wall net again early in the third pe­riod, this time on a power play.

Mader then scored his first of two, on a break­away from the red line in.

His late marker, with 23 sec­onds left in the con­test, was as­sisted by Mc­Don­ald.

Parker Sauve back­stopped the vic­tory be­tween the pipes.

Char-Lan fin­ished the sea­son with just one loss in 28 games, and a +98 goal dif­fer­en­tial.

Reg­u­lar-sea­son play for CharLan’s rep. ‘B’ hockey teams com­pet­ing in the UCMHL con­cluded last week­end, with all five squads qual­i­fy­ing for the new play­off for­mat that sees only the top four ad­vance.

Three Rebels teams – pee­wee, atom, and novice – cap­tured first place to boot, earn­ing a berth in the the league’s tour­na­ment of champions, later this month.

As men­tioned in story at left, Char-Lan’s ban­tams ended up in sec­ond place, one point be­hind the Glens.

The ma­jor midget Rebels fin­ished tied for third in a tight divi­sion that saw just three points sep­a­rate the top four squads.
