Unseasonably hot temperatures prompted soldiers and civilians alike to seek shelter from the sun during the Glengarry Pioneer Museum’s eighth annual Battle of Glengarry/War of 1812 Re-Enactment Weekend. Among the weekend warriors was John Robertson who along with Mohawk comrades fired a volley at the retreating infantry. More coverage in the September 27 edition of The News.
Battle of Glengarry
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.
