Alexandria atoms capture crown
BY SEAN BRAY Sports Editor A group of young hockey players from the Alexandria area is feeling pretty good these days.
Competing in the ‘A’ championship pool with the South Stormont Selects #1 squad, the atom ‘C’ Glens clinched the title, five points to three, with a 3-1 victory in game four.
Philippe Gareau scored twice, including the gamewinner, while Benjamin Osborne potted a late empty-netter.
The series opened with a 5-4 win for Alexandria, with the Selects drawing even in game two, prevailing over the Glens 4-3. The third contest went into the books as a 1-1 tie. Players and parents extend their thanks to the coaching staff for their great work this season.
The campaign included three tournament wins over the course of the winter, as well as a first-place finish in LSLMHL regular-season action.
