River Kings weekend round-up

office Dec 2, 2014 - 3:14pm

(By Rodney Wilson)     The Riviere-du-Loup 3L came from behind on Saturday night to defeat the River Kings 4-2 in front of 1,563 fans at the Civic Complex.

Chad Lacasse’s goal late in the second period on his brother Loic Lacasse proved to be the winner. Bryce Swan opened the scoring for the 3L at 3:20 of the first with a power-play marker. The 3L started the game with three straight powerplays. The speedy Francois Ouimet got the River Kings on the board early in the second. Ouimet blew by a 3L defenceman and tucked one past Francois Lacerte at 1:10 of the middle frame to level the score. Moments later, Pierre-Luc Faubert’s hard work down low paid off, and rookie Julien Houle took advantage to give the River Kings a 2-1 lead at 3:09. Houle jumped on a loose puck in the slot, spun and fired a shot past Lacerte.

Riviere-du-Loup levelled the score on a Marc-Andre Tourigny marker at 10:13 of the second. Tourigny pounced on a rebound off the post to beat River Kings goaltender Loic Lacasse.
The 3L went ahead 3-2 when Chad Lacasse scored on a wrist shot from the slot for a powerplay goal with 2:14 to play in the second. Marc-Olivier D’Amour scored on a semi-breakaway 1:21 into the third to open up a two-goal lead for Riviere-du-Loup.

Mike Stacey made his 2014-15 debut for Cornwall. The fan favourite dropped the gloves and had a lengthy bout with Cedric Verreault mid-way through the first.

Tourigny (first), Brennan Barker (second), and Simon Danis-Pepin were the announced stars. Riviere-du-Loup outshot Cornwall 32-29.

The River Kings are back in action next Saturday, Dec. 6, when they host the Sorel-Tracy Eperviers.

NOTES: Former River Kings Nicolas Sigouin and Patrick Lapostolle were in the lineup for the 3L … Chris Cloutier was on hand signing autographs for fans before the game and during intermissions … Francis Lessard (upper body injury) wasn’t in the lineup for Cornwall.

FRIDAY: At Jonquiere on Friday night, the Marquis doubled up the River Kings 6-3. Yannick Riendeau had a hat trick and River King killer Francis Charette had four assists for the defending champs. Houle, J.P. Caron and Mathieu had the Cornwall goals. Pete Karvouniaris took the loss in goal for the River Kings, who were outshot 41-23.

Williamstown's Jonathan Jasper plays defence for the River Kings. Thus far, he has suited up in 10 games this season, scoring 1 goal and 3 assists, to go along with 13 penalty minutes.


No statement from GSL this week, AGM set for Sunday

office Dec 2, 2014 - 3:04pm

The Glengarry Soccer League's financial review committed has opted to make no further public statements. The committee last week presented its report to the outgoing GSL board, and will present it again at the league's Annual General Meeting on Sunday, Dec. 7 at the Sandfield Centre, in Alexandria's Island Park. The start time of that meeting is 7pm.

As noted in the Nov. 26 edition of The Glengarry News, all board positions are up for nomination and election. It's also expected that a number of changes will be voted on, including the reinstatement of the treasurer position, which had been eliminated a couple of years ago. The lack of financial oversight has been suggested as partly to blaim for the GSL's current financial deficit.
