Rebels drop semifinal opener on the road

sean Mar 6, 2019 - 12:04pm

After a tight first period that ended 1-1, the wheels fell off in the second stanza, where the Ottawa Jr. Canadians scored five times, en route to handing The Char-Lan Rebels a 6-2 loss to open the Martin Division best-of-seven semifinals.

It was the first road defeat for Char-Lan, which in the previous round won both road games in Alexandria.

For starting goaltender Grant Craig, who had been stellar against the Glens, he was given a break after allowing five goals on 18 shots through 25:59 of play. Julien Cholette took over in net for the remainder of the match, surrendering one goal and making 25 saves.

Game two of the series is set for Williamstown, on Thursday night.

With the league-leading Ottawa Jr. Canadians waiting in the wings, the deciding match of the CCHL2 wildcard series will hit the ice tonight in Alexandria, with the Glens hosting the Char-Lan Rebels, at the Glengarry Sports Palace, beginning at 8 p.m.

The first and second games of the series were both close.

The opener, in Alexandria, was a 1-0 win for the Rebels, where Char-Lan goaltender Grant Craig stood on his head and made 34 saves in the shut-out victory.

Game two, in Williamstown last night, went into overtime, where the Glens prevailed, 4-3, the winning marker notched on a power play.

This series was expected to be close, as the clubs split four games during the course of the regular season.

Game two of county rivals CCHL2 wildcard playoff series goes tonight in Williamstown

sean Feb 28, 2019 - 4:31pm

The second game of the best-of-three CCHL2 wildcard playoff series between the Char-Lan Rebels and Alexandria Glens is scheduled for tonight in Williamstown, and the contest will have a lot to live up to, following a thrilling opener Tuesday evening in Alexandria.

The Feb. 26 match saw Char-Lan prevail 1-0 on a third-period power-play goal, from Brennan Markell, who collected the puck off an endboards rebound, following an initial shot from the blue line by Mathieu Sabourin.

Rebels goaltender Grant Craig was a rock all night, but especially in the first and second periods, keeping the Glens off the scoresheet. In all, he made 34 saves.

Alexandria got into penalty trouble in the final frame, playing nearly half of the period short-handed. This has been a bugaboo for the Glens all season.

Game time tonight is set for 8 p.m. at the Char-Lan Rec. Centre.
