Prowlers sweep open­ing round

The Glengarry News - - Sports On The Glens -

The Corn­wall Prowlers of the LHSAO have ad­vanced to the sec­ond round of league play­offs, fol­low­ing a sweep of the Pon­tiac Comets.

The clincher for the se­nior ‘A’ hockey team came on home ice last Satur­day night, when the

Prowlers spanked the Comets 9-3. The of­fen­sive out­put was led by Maxville na­tive Adam Wensink, who chalked up two goals and two as­sists. Alexan­dria’s Pier­reLuc Sabourin had one helper.

The team also in­cludes Mart­in­town’s Jesse Fon­taine.

Sabourin, re­flect­ing on the se­ries sweep, said, “It was awe­some. The boys played very good, we played as a team, and our goalie, Fredy Roy, is very hot – he is play­ing over his head.”

The young de­fence­man adds, “And I just have to say one thing about the next se­ries. Here we come Mont-Lau­rier!”

The top-ranked Mon­tag­nards will pro­vide the op­po­si­tion in the up­com­ing round, a best-of­five, that will be­gin March 2 in Mont-Lau­rier.

Game two is slated for March 3, at Corn­wall’s mul­ti­sport com­plex, start­ing at 5:30 p.m.

The se­ries is sched­uled to con­tinue March 9 in Mont-Lau­rier, then move back to Corn­wall on March 10 (if needed). A fifth game, if re­quired, will be played March 16 in Mont-Lau­rier.

In reg­u­lar-sea­son play, Sabourin fin­ished sixth in points on his team (19). Fon­taine counted 14 points, and Wensink, who was sec­ond in penalty min­utes (41) notched 9 points in the 14 games he played.
