Prowlers out

The Glengarry News - - Sports In The Glens - – Sean Bray

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.
