The board of the hall of fame extends congratulations to the 2020 inductees:

  • Barb Benton (Apple Hill: sports organizer, ball hockey, broomball)
  • Glen Campbell (Glen Nevis: sports organizer, coach, soccer, hockey)
  • Heather MacLeod (Maxville: Highland dance)
  • Michael Robertson (Williamstown, track athlete)
  • Corey Van Loon (Martintown, sports organizer, canoeist, Raisin River Canoe Race)

Typically, members of the hall, along with inductees, family members, supporters, past inductees, and honoured graduating high school athletes gather for a celebration each August. The location rotates amongst the county’s three arena, with festivities held on the arena floor. Last year, the event was held in Williamstown, at the Char-Lan Rec. Centre, with the 2020 edition (the 41st annual) scheduled for Maxville’s arena.

However, “due to COVID-19, The Glengarry Sports Hall of Fame’s 2020 Induction Night has been postponed to Wednesday, August 18, 2021, in Maxville. Mark your calendars!”

New Website Address and Hall Visits for 2020

The Glengarry Sports Hall of Fame website address has changed slightly, with the website now available at glengarrysports.ca (formerly .com).

The website is chock full of stories on past inductees, since the facility, located in Maxville, was established in 1979.

Traditionally, the hall building opens after the long weekend in May, welcoming visitors through to Labour Day. The board of the hall of fame expects they will have a summer student hosting guests once again this year.

The hall building is located at 35 Fair Street, adjacent to the arena in Maxville.

Stay tuned for an official announcement on this year’s opening.

Millionaires ready for game 2 on home ice

Fresh off a thrilling game one of their EOSHL semifinal series on the road playing the West Carleton Rivermen, the Maxville Millionaires will host game two tonight, looking to square the series.

The start is set for 8 p.m. at the Maxville arena, also known as the Vault.

The series opened was a wild one that saw the Millionaires open the game with a 2-0 lead, only to see the Rivermen go on a seven-goal run. Not to be outdone, though, Maxville stormed back with five straight to even the affair and force overtime. However, 15:17 into the extra session, West Carleton’s Brett Gustavsen ended it, sealing an 8-7 final.

On the night, Maxville goaltender Miguel D’Aoust made 37 saves, while Dave Stathos at the other end of the ice stopped 22.

Connor MacLeod paced the Millionaires offence with a five-point night (1 goal, 4 assists), while Bradley Gabbour had a trick. His effort included the game-tying tally at the 18:02 mark of the third period.

It was also a three-point game for Calvin Wojtaszak (1 goal, 2 assists). Other offensive contributors were Adam Wensink (1 G, 1 A), Braedan Pearl (1 G, 1 A), Vincent Crockett (2 A), Chris Rutley (1 A), Pierre-Luc Sabourin (1 A), and Matt Thompson (1 A).

Maxville scored twice on five power-play opportunities, while West Carleton went one-for-four.
