Novice Rebels tri­umph for UCMHL cham­pi­onship

The Glengarry News - - Sports in the Glens - Sean Bray

Char-Lan’s novice rep. Rebels hockey team is the 2018 UCMHL play­off cham­pion.

The five-point se­ries went the dis­tance, wrap­ping up on home ice in Wil­liamstown, on March 29, when Rebels, sponsored by PURE Or­ganic Spa, scored a 4-2 come­back vic­tory.

The vis­it­ing Kemptville Pan­thers opened the con­test with a pair of first-pe­riod goals, but their of­fence was stymied from there, as Char-Lan went to work, pot­ting four unan­swered tal­lies.

Ben­nett White­horne be­gan the re­sponse, with a late one in the open­ing frame, as the Rebs had the Kemptville goal­tender un­der pres­sure, splayed on the ice.

Lan­don Lau­zon drew the equal­izer on a break­away early in the sec­ond stanza, blow­ing his shot past the goalie.

A few min­utes later, Carter Ver­done car­ried the play into the of­fen­sive zone, get­ting a shot on goal. The squad con­tin­ued to at­tack, set­ting the stage for Chace Mader to score what would stand as the game-win­ner.

White­horne added an insurance marker off a sweet Ver­done feed from the cor­ner, in the third frame to seal the cham­pi­onship.

Char- Lan took the ti­tle, six points to four. Prior to game five, each team had one win, one loss, and two ties.
