Braves take down Glens for ti­tle

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

The NGS Braves mid­get ‘B’ house hockey team claimed the Lower St. Lawrence Mi­nor Hockey League play­off cham­pi­onship, on a 3-2 win in game five of the ti­tle se­ries, over the Alexan­dria Glens.

Head­ing into the con­test, the teams had bat­tled back-and-forth through the pre­vi­ous four games, with each squad win­ning twice.

The Braves opened with a 6-5 vic­tory on March 19, led by James Paul’s three-point ef­fort and two goals from Der­ryk Gau­thier. Alexan­dria’s top point­get­ters were Max Pilon (2 goals, 1 as­sist), and Joah Vail­lain­court (2G).

The Glens drew even in the se­ries with a 4-1 ef­fort in game two. Colby Lacombe had two points for the Alexan­dria side, while Bray­den Cas­sel­man tal­lied the lone goal for NGS.

In game three, Alexan­dria took the se­ries lead with a 3-2 win. Pilon, Alex Lalonde, and Martin Jeau­rond had the Glens goals, while Brigham Richard Hill and Zachary Me­u­nier scored for the Braves.

Ahead four-points-to-two head­ing into the next bat­tle on March 30, Alexan­dria needed just a tie to claim the ti­tle, but NGS had other ideas, skat­ing to a 2-1 vic­tory on the strength of two tal­lies from Ivan Schel­len­berg. The Glens marker came from Nathaniel The­o­ret. Scor­ing for game five was not avail­able.
