Midget house Glens score league playoff title
The Alexandria midget house Glens hockey team is the 2018 playoff champion of the Lower St. Lawrence Minor Hockey League.
After completing the regular season atop the eight-team standings, with just one loss in 24 games played, the Glens went on to skate unbeaten through the playoff round- robin, with a record of 3 wins and 1 tie.
The ensuing ‘A’ pool championship series featured Alexandria against the South Stormont Selects, in four hard-fought contests, where the Glens demonstrated why they were so strong during the regular season.
After a 3-3 tie in game one, the Glens blew out the Selects 9-4 in the second match. The boys followed that up with an exciting 4-4 draw.
Alexandria needed just a point (a tie) in the finale to secure the championship, and that’s what the Glens got, as the contest ended 5-5, with the boys battling through 10 penalties.
