The Alexandria Glens hockey club has announced a new partnership with the Hawkesbury Hawks. Click here to read the details.
Representatives of the Char-Lan Rebels and Alexandria Glens junior B hockey clubs in the EOJHL were on hand Monday in Kemptville at the first official meeting of the new CCHL2.
Check out the details here.
A pair of significant meetings are scheduled for tonight, with votes likely that could impact both junior and local minor hockey.
EOJHL (junior B) club representatives will meet to review the latest outline for the new CCHL2 league that will replace the current model. Groups have had to ante up a pile of cash to bid for franchises in the new league, with a decision of the successful teams expected to be announced soon, likely this week.
At minor council, a vote is expected on a proposal to expand the current midget 'AAA' hockey league to 12 teams, from its current eight, in order to line up with the 12 clubs that make up the CCHL. The plan also calls for the elimination of the minor midget division in 'AAA' hockey and will likely have trickle down effects on 'AA' and 'A' programs as well.
There's a Glengarry county connection to the EOJHL St. Lawrence Division final series this year, and it comes in the person of Anthony Pace. The Maxville native is a rookie member of the Casselman Vikings. He recorded 18 points during the regular season and one assist in the opening playoff round, where the Vikes dispatched the Char-Lan Rebels. Pace wears number 8.
The Vikings beat the Hawks in game one last night, 6-3, with the second contest set for tonight in Winchester. The full schedule is on our website at www.sportsintheglens.ca
Both the Char-Lan Rebels and Alexandria Glens will be on the ice tonight, facing must-win playoff situations as they hope to carry momentum over from victories I their respective games five.
Tonight, the Rebs will be in Williamstown hosting the Casselman Vikings, while the Glens will be on the road in Winchester.
Just two days after a heart-breaking overtime loss on home ice, the Char-Lan junior B Rebels were in Casselman last night with their backs against the wall – a loss and their season was over.
Trailing in the second period, the Rebs rallied to skate to a 4-2 win and stave off elimination in game five.
The Vikings now lead the series three games to two, with the sixth contest of the series scheduled for Saturday, Feb. 27 in Williamstown at 8pm. Once again the Char-Lan boys will be fighting for the win to push the series the distance.
The Alexandria Glens sit 1-2 in their series with the Winchester Hawks, with game three scheduled for Wednesday night in Winchester.
The Char-Lan Rebels will see action tonight in Casselman. The Rebs dropped the first two games of this series. Game four will be in Williamstown on Tuesday, Feb. 24 at 8pm.
