Rebels split week­end

The Glengarry News - - The Opinion Page -

BY SEAN BRAY Sports Edi­tor Char-Lan’s ju­nior ‘B’ hockey team skated to split re­sults last week­end, win­ning at home Satur­day night, be­fore los­ing on the road Sun­day.

The Dec. 1 con­test, in Wil­liamstown, saw the sea­son de­but of Alexan­dria na­tive Julien Cho­lette tend­ing the twine tem­ple for Char-Lan, which scored a 5-3 vic­tory over the Rich­mond Roy­als.

The 17-year-old Cho­lette was cred­ited with 27 saves in the spir­ited con­test, in which the teams com­bined for 119 min­utes in penal­ties.

There were also two sep­a­rate fights in the game, in­clud­ing one where Camp­bell Craig squared off Rich­mond’s Dale Kirby at the 9:49 mark of the

third pe­riod. Craig says he came out of the fisticuffs al­right, ex­cept for a bloody nose.

Five dif­fer­ent Rebels scored: Liam MacDonald, Ja­cob Cook, Ryan Rei­fler, Mathieu Sabourin, and Bren­nan Markell.

Pick­ing up the as­sists were Sabourin (2), Cook (2), Shane Gau­dreau (2), Zach Auger, Dil­lon Spin­ner, Rei­fler, and Markell.

In Rich­mond on Sun­day, the White­wa­ter Kings got the early jump on the Rebels and never looked back, skat­ing to a 10-3 win.

Grant Craig got the start be­tween the pipes, last­ing just over 25 min­utes. He was given the hook af­ter the Kings scored for the sixth time.

Danik Martin took over in re­lief, fin­ish­ing the game with 19 saves on 23 shots.

Sabourin scored two of CharLan’s goals, with the other net­ted by Jus­tice Brown­lee.

As­sists went to C. Craig, MacDonald, Markell, and Cook.

Worth not­ing, there were just 10 min­utes of sin bin time in this one.

The Rebels en­ter week 13 of the CCHL2 sea­son in fourth place, in the Martin Divi­sion, with a record of 12 wins, 9 losses, 1 over-

time loss, and 1 shootout loss, for 26 points.

They are two points bet­ter than fifth-seed Alexan­dria, while trail­ing third-place Ot­tawa West by six. How­ever, the Rebs have a game in hand on both teams.

Up next on the schedule, in their lone game this week, CharLan is booked to play on the road, Dec. 7, ver­sus the Arn­prior Pack­ers.

The fol­low­ing week, on Dec. 12, the boys will play in Brockville, be­fore re­turn­ing to home ice in Wil­liamstown for a Dec. 15 match, against the county ri­val Glens.
