Les Rapi­des to skate at Franco

The Glengarry News - - Sports in the Glens -

BY SEAN BRAY Sports Edi­tor Le Re­lais’ boys hockey team is off to Ni­a­gara Falls this week, com­pet­ing in the Tournoi Franco-On­tarien.

Head coach Do­minic De­coeur puts his troops through their final prepa­ra­tions last Fri­day at a tour­na­ment in Hawkes­bury, where les Rapi­des fin­ished sec­ond in com­pe­ti­tion with teams from much larger schools.

De­coeur adds that he was “very happy with the re­sults” in the “high-tempo hockey.”

In game one ver­sus l’Es­cale, Le Re­lais scored five times in the sec­ond pe­riod, fall­ing short in a 6-5 loss.

Jeremy Ques­nel counted a hat trick to lead les Rapi­des, with Kieran Craig and Mathieu Sabourin ac­count­ing for the other mark­ers.

The sec­ond game went into the books as an 8-1 vic­tory. Goal scor­ing in­for­ma­tion was not avail­able.

In the third con­test of the day, le Re­lais skated to a 3-1 win, on a pair of tal­lies by Ques­nel and one from Sabourin. This year’s Franco tour­na­ment runs April 18 to 20.

In April 5 ex­hi­bi­tion play in Alexan­dria, le Re­lais es­caped with a 7-6 win against the Cas­sel­man Dy­namos, to even the team’s record at the .500 mark.

De­fen­sive lapses late in each pe­riod cost les Rapi­des, as the con­test oth­er­wise would not have been close.

Craig, Sabourin, and Jeremy Che­nier each found the back of the op­po­si­tion net twice, with the other marker notched by Alex Lalonde.
