The senior and mixed Canadian broomball championships are taking place this week at Cornwall's multi-sport complex, with three divisions – elite ladies, elite men's, and mixed – on the ice.
Round-robin action continues through Friday morning, followed by playoffs that continue into Saturday.
There are local connections to a number of teams, including the national defending champion Eastern Rebels (elite ladies division), who are currently 3-0 at the tournament, heading into game four set for a 4:10 p.m. start.

North Glengarry's adult flag football league concluded regular-season play last Sunday. We have a photo gallery from one of the games here, and our April 10 edition includes more details.
Four senior boys high school soccer teams competed at an indoor tournament in Alexandria last week. We have details in this week's edition of The News. A photo gallery from the match between Glengarry and Holy Trinity can be viewed here.
The 2019 edition of the Raisin River Canoe Race is just a week away, scheduled for Sunday, April 14, running the traditional course from St. Andrew's West downstream to Williamstown, a distance of just over 30 kilometres.

A special exhibition senior 'A' hockey game will be played this evening in Cornwall, as the Cornwall Prowlers host the Montreal-based Cedars.
Who are the Cedars, you ask? It's a newly formed group of hockey players playing under the banner of the Lebanese Ice Hockey Federation.
Game time at Cornwall's multi-sport complex is set for 7:20 p.m., and at least two Glengarrians (Jesse Fontaine and Pierre Luc Sabourin) are expected to be included on the Cornwall roster.
Our latest additions to our online image galleries include the following:
- GSL women's indoor soccer (game 2 of finals)
- UCMHL major midget Char-Lan Rebels game five playoff hockey
- indoor GSL men's soccer final series game two
- the Glengarry Cup (curling)
- hockey game featuring the OPP versus Glengarry DHS
Game two of the senior men's GSL soccer finals goes tonight at the dome in Alexandria, starting at 7:30 p.m. As we reported in The Glengarry News, the Bar Flies prevailed in the series opener last week and can clinch the title this evening. McCrimmon, with a win, will force a third and deciding match.
Two boys from the county will skate with their respective QMJHL clubs in first-round playoff hockey action tonight.
Roddie Sandiland and his Cape Breton Screaming Eagles are facing the Charlottetown Islanders, looking to even the series that they currently trail 2 games to 1.
The Gatineau Olympiques and Kieran Craig are taking on the Drummondville Voltigeurs, and it's do-or-die for them tonight, as they trail 3-0.
