Good month for Rebels

The Glengarry News - - Sports in the Glens - Sean Bray

Fe­bru­ary has been go­ing well for the Char-Lan Rebels, with the boys ring­ing off a pair of vic­to­ries last week­end.

Satur­day night on home ice, one of the league’s top teams, the Cas­sel­man Vik­ings, was in Wil­liamstown, but it was the Rebels who snatched the vic­tory, pre­vail­ing 3-1.

Grant Craig made 27 saves for the win in net, while Bren­nan Markell, Taran Fi­acco, and Isaac Tes­tani notched goals. As­sist­ing were Zach Auger, Shane Gau­dreau, Ry­lan Iwach­niuk, and Markell.

The pre­vi­ous night i n Winch­ester, the Rebels had to con­tend with a surg­ing Hawks squad that is nip­ping at CharLan’s heels in the stand­ings for the last play­off po­si­tion.

The pesky Hawks weren’t about to roll over in this one, as it seemed that each time the Rebs took a lead, the Winch­ester boys had a re­sponse.

With Char-Lan ahead 3-2 in the late go­ing, the Rebs were flagged for a penalty. Winch­ester pulled its goalie for a six-on-four ad­van­tage and cap­i­tal­ized.

Three min­utes into over­time, Evan Hunt­ley was sent in alone, off a Markell feed (his third of the game), scor­ing the 4- 3 win­ner.

Also find­ing the net for CharLan were Math­ieu Sabourin, Tes­tani ( short- handed), and Fi­acco, while Liam Mac­Don­ald counted two as­sists. Jake Amo also had a helper.

Craig turned aside 30 shots on goal.

The team’s other two games ear­lier this month fin­ished in one-goal losses, 4-3 to Ot­tawa West and 4-3 to West­port.

Char-Lan (18-18-3-1) has four games re­main­ing in reg­u­larsea­son play, with now a sev­en­point mar­gin over the Hawks (14-20-3-2), who have a game in hand. The Glens (21-16-2-2) are six points up on the Rebels.

Next home game is set for Feb. 16 at 8 p.m., when the Arn­prior Pack­ers (16-19-4-1) visit the CharLan Rec. Cen­tre, in Wil­liamstown.
