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.
