Rebels complete sweep of Glens; teams to collide again twice this weekend

Last Saturday in Williamstown, the junior ‘B’ Char-Lan Rebels hosted their first action of the season, skating to a 5-3 victory over the Alexandria Glens, in the second half of back-to-back non-contact scrimmages. With the win, the Rebs completed the weekend sweep of their northern rival, as the teams are set to collide again this weekend.

On the heels of a 3-2 win in Alexandria Friday night, Char-Lan maintained the pressure on the Glens an evening later in Williamstown, opening up a 2-0 lead in the first period, en route to prevailing at the final buzzer 5-3.

Tanner Gillies and William Zhang backstopped the Glens in the loss. Alexandria goals were netted by Nico Pozzebon, Kyle Joly, and Zachary Bigras. Picking up the assists were Nicolas Ouellette, Kyle Green, Tyson Allard, Pozzebon, and Alexandre Saul.

Taran Fiacco scored the game-winner for Char-Lan 14 minutes into the third period, on a power play, set up by Alexxi Paquette and an unidentified player. Cuyler Molinaro iced the victory in the late going, with an unassisted tally.

Earlier goals for the Rebels were scored by Ryan Grant (unassisted), Andrew Dixon (from Joseph Samson and Alexandre Elie) and Samson.

Ceili Picard came into the game midway through, backstopping the win, taking over for a young prospect who started.

“Home it was just nice to be back on home ice!! Call it a game, call it a scrimmage, it’s still the #BattleOfGlengarry. Another tight one! The Rebs take it 5-3! Thanks to the Township of South Glengarry for accommodating our fans tonight! #Safe #socialdistanced #GoRebsGo #EOJHL”

Next scrimmages set for October 16, 17

On Friday, the Glens will again host the Rebels, with the teams switching to Williamstown for Saturday night to complete the four-game scrimmage series.

Both games are sold out. Anyone arriving without a ticket will be refused entry due to COVID-19 spectator limits.

The games can be viewed online, with a subscription to Hockey TV.

I am told that after these skates, the teams will focus on independent training and development, as much remains on hold due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Roster changes

In other developments, former Rebel Rylan Iwachniuk has been traded from his current team, the CCHL Cornwall Colts, to the Nepean Raiders, also of the region’s junior ‘A’ hockey league. The Raiders also got Jack Parker and a player development fee in the trade, while Cornwall received Tyson Tomasini in return.

Iwachniuk was a mainstay of the Char-Lan lineup last season, skating in 43 games and notching 17 points. The forward who hails from Ingleside is 18 this year.
