Casselman Vikings take fourth straight CCHL2 title

sean Apr 13, 2017 - 3:30pm

The Casselman Vikings are Barkley Cup Champions, having defeated the Richmond Royals 5-1 Wednesday night to sweep the series and win their fourth straight CCHL2 title.

Rookie goaltender Seth Carter was on top of his game once again, making 27 saves to win his 10th straight game and finish the playoffs with eye-popping numbers: a 12-2 record, with a 2.05 goals against average and a 0.939 save percentage.

The Vikings continued to do what they did all season long, and that was score by committee, as five players tallied markers in this one. Jeremie Lefebvre (1G, 2A), Brendan Doherty (1G,1A), Joel Hunt (1G, 1A), Isaac Barr (1G), and Tyler Somers (1G) all lit the lamp. 

Patrick Kealey made 26 saves in the Richmond net, while Matt Veaudry had the lone goal.

It is a rarity at any level, but especially in junior hockey, that a team can have as much success as the Vikings have had in their franchise history. Each season the club puts the work in to build a contender.

As the CCHL2 news release puts it, "The Vikings continue to be a model franchise, a fun place for players to play, and a great organization for young players to develop before moving up the ladder."

Glens prevail over rival Rebels to run winning streak to two games

sean Feb 2, 2017 - 4:10pm

In a rare Wednesday night junior 'B' hockey game at the Glengarry Sports Palace, the Alexandria Glens scored a 4-2 win over the Char-Lan Rebels, despite a stellar goaltending performance.

Grant Craig stopped 53 shots, but it wasn't enough, as his Char-Lan teammates managed to get just 20 on Alexandria goaltender Drew Karle.

The victory was the second straight for the Glens, after the boys had struggled to find the win column in 2017. Char-Lan had won the previous meeting with their northern rival, 4-0.

Alexandria will be back on home ice Friday night, while the Rebels will skate at home on Saturday night. Be sure to check this week's edition of The Glengarry News for all the details.
