Jr. ‘B’ Rebels skate to week­end split

The Glengarry News - - Sports in the Glens -

BY SEAN BRAY Sports Ed­i­tor It was a de­cent week­end for the Char-Lan CCHL2 Rebels, who skated to split re­sults in a pair of home games.

On Satur­day night, the Rebs fell be­hind the vis­it­ing Cas­sel­man Vik­ings, the league’s sec­ond best team based on record, 4-0, when start­ing goal­tender Grant Craig got the hook in favour of Daw­son Irv­ing. That change seemed to jolt the Char-Lan squad, which shut down the Vikes, while go­ing to work on of­fence, nearly stag­ing an im­prob­a­bly come­back.

With un­der a minute left in the sec­ond stanza, Bren­nan Markell cracked the goose egg for the Rebels, as­sisted by Math­ieu Sabourin and Sam Fer­land, on a power play.

Twenty-nine sec­onds into the third, Char-Lan got an­other man­ad­van­tage tally, when Ryan Rei­fler found the back of the Cas­sel­man net, set up by Fer­land and Markell.

Four min­utes later, Fer­land scored, for his third point of the night, as­sisted by Rei­fler, but that’s as close as the Rebels could get, as the boys fell short, 4-3, ex­tend­ing the team’s los­ing skid to three games.

A rare Sun­day af­ter­noon tilt in Wil­liamstown saw the Rebels right the ship, back­stopped by a 32-save ef­fort from Irv­ing, as Char-Lan pre­vailed over the Car­leton Place Jr. Cana­di­ans 4-1.

Markell notched the game-win­ning tally at the 18:21 mark of the first pe­riod, af­ter Rei­fler had opened the scor­ing on a power play.

Ja­cob Cook added a goals in the sec­ond and third frames. Chalk­ing up the as­sists in the match were Dil­lon Spin­ner (2), Jake Amo, Rei­fler, Fer­land, Shane Gau­dreau, Jus­tice Brown­lee, and Camp­bell Craig.

Head­ing into week nine, the Rebels find them­selves in third place of the Martin Di­vi­sion, tied with county ri­val Alexan­dria, at 8-6-1-1, for 18 points.

Dun­ve­gan’s Liam Mac­Don­ald, an 18-year-old cen­tre­man, was re­signed to the team on Oct. 18, af­ter start­ing the sea­son with the ju­nior ‘A’ Corn­wall Colts. Thus far he’s played in six games with Char-Lan, yet to record a point while chalk­ing up 20 penalty min­utes.

The team has three games on tap this week­end, in­clud­ing road ac­tion Nov. 8 against Ot­tawa West and Nov. 11 in Richmond.

Satur­day, Nov. 10 will see the boys skat­ing at the Char-Lan Rec. Cen­tre, in Wil­liamstown. Game time is set for 8 p.m., with the Brockville Tikis pro­vid­ing the op­po­si­tion.
