sean Feb 13, 2018 - 12:53pm

The county's junior 'B' hockey teams, as well as those across the league, are facing the home stretch of their season, with just a handle of games remaining to be played.

We have a story in The Glengarry News this week about the recent disruptions that Mother Nature has caused to scheduled games.

The final round of this season's Battle of Glengarry is scheduled for tonight, Feb. 13, in Williamstown, where the Alexandria Glens and host Char-Lan Rebels will square off. After the Glens won the series opener, the Rebels have prevailed in the last two matches between the clubs. Set time is set for 8 p.m.

Here's a complete schedule of remaining contests for the Glens and Rebels.

On Friday, Feb. 9, the Alexandria Glens will hold a special minor hockey evening as part of their junior 'B' hockey game that night with the Ottawa West Golden Knights.

As we reported in The Glengarry News last week (Jan. 31 edition), the Alexandria peewee 'C' Glens will take on EPR Fusion from Hawkesbury, prior to the CCHL2 contest, starting at approximately 6:30 p.m. The junior 'B' game will follow at the Glens' traditional 8 p.m. start time.

All minor hockey players, wearing their jerseys and accompanied by a paying adult, will be admitted to the evening at no charge.

Alexandria Glens succumb in overtime in rare Tuesday night CCHL2 home contest

sean Feb 7, 2018 - 2:28pm

The Alexandria Glens continued their late-season swoon on Tuesday night, falling behind the Perth Blue Wings 3-0, before rallying to tie, only to eventually fall 4-3 in overtime. 

Over their last eight CCHL2 games, the Glens have won just twice, though the boys have also picked up single points in three other games, as a result of overtime or shootout losses.

Perplexingly, two of the losses have come against the Char-Lan Rebels, one of the weakest teams statistically in the league, while one of Alexandria wins came against the top-ranked Casselman Vikings.
