The CCHL2 makeup game for the Alexandria Glens and Char-Lan Rebels that was to be played Jan. 23 in Williamstown has been postponed again, moved to Tuesday, Feb. 13 at 8 p.m., in Williamstown. This is the contest that was originally scheduled to be played before Christmas but was cancelled due to snow and road conditions.
Last night in Alexandria, the Glens suffered a loss to one of the league's top teams, the Athens Aeros, in the process ending Alexandria's winning streak at six games. Despite the defeat on Saturday night, the Glens have plenty to be optimistic about heading into the new year, and we will have the story in The Glengarry News.
The Char-Lan junior 'B' Rebels of the CCHL2 wrapped up the 2017 portion of their schedule on Saturday night, scoring a home-ice victory over the Brockville Tikis, and we will have the story in the next edition of The Glengarry News.
