Rebels drop semifinal opener on the road

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.
