Last week, Kieran Craig, who hails from Alexan­dria and skates for the Gatineau Olympiques, and South Glen­garry’s Roddie Sandilands, a mem­ber of the Cape Bre­ton Scream­ing Ea­gles, col­lided on the ice in QMJHL ac­tion, in Gatineau, with friends and fam­ily mem­bers there to cheer them on.

The Olympiques won, 4-1, as Sandilands says, “It was a tough game for us,” but he adds that it was “spe­cial when you have lots of loved ones there to watch.”

On play­ing against some­one else from the county, Craig notes, “it’s pretty cool.”

Craig, a rookie for­ward, has 12 points and 25 penalty min­utes, in 54 games this sea­son, while Sandilands, a sec­ond- year de­fence­man has 2 points and 6 PIM in 13 games, af­ter be­ing traded from Shaw­ini­gan.
