The inaugural season of senior ‘A’ men’s hockey in Cornwall came to an end last weekend, when the Prowlers were humbled 10-0, in game four of the best-offive LHSAO semifinal series with the Mont Laurier Montagnards.
The lone Prowlers win came in game two, a 6-5 effort.
Maxville’s Adam Wensink was among the key injured players unable to finish the series.
Pierre-Luc Sabourin, who hails from Alexandria, is a young defenceman and believes that despite the playoff exit it was still a great season for him, the team, and senior ‘A’ hockey, as he and other graduates of junior clubs now have a place to play.
The other Glengarrian on the team is Jesse Fontaine, of Martintown.
According to Mitch Gagne, a new organization, the Eastern Ontario Senior ‘ A’ Hockey League, is being formed in the region with plans to hit the ice for fall 2019.
Gagne is the brains behind the group, and the Prowlers are the first team to commit, though it’s expected that squads will also be iced in Maxville and Vankleek Hill, providing natural rivalries, in addition to other small communities throughout Eastern Ontario.
