Alexandria Glens succumb in overtime in rare Tuesday night CCHL2 home contest

sean Feb 7, 2018 - 2:28pm

The Alexandria Glens continued their late-season swoon on Tuesday night, falling behind the Perth Blue Wings 3-0, before rallying to tie, only to eventually fall 4-3 in overtime. 

Over their last eight CCHL2 games, the Glens have won just twice, though the boys have also picked up single points in three other games, as a result of overtime or shootout losses.

Perplexingly, two of the losses have come against the Char-Lan Rebels, one of the weakest teams statistically in the league, while one of Alexandria wins came against the top-ranked Casselman Vikings.
