Wednesday night in Alexandria, the puck dropped on exhibition action for the county's CCHL2 hockey clubs, which collided at the Glengarry Sports Palace. Thanks in large part to a pair of goals in the second period, the Glens prevailed 3-2.

The teams will reconvene Saturday evening in Williamstown.

Alexandria arena equipment problems force relocation of Glens camp, Hawks games

sean Aug 21, 2018 - 12:09pm

The 2018 edition of the Alexandria junior 'B' Glens hockey club training camp has been moved to Cornwall, due to equipment problems at the Billy Gebbie Arena that are preventing staff from putting in the ice sheet.

In addition, the junior 'A' Hawks had booked ice time in Alexandria for exhibition action with the Cornwall Colts. This has now been moved to St. Isidore.

North Glengarry deputy mayor Jamie MacDonald tells The News that "When the staff were going through their checklist for start-up, they noticed an issue with the chiller. The contractor could only come today (Aug. 21) to fix it, hence pushing back start-up for a few days."

The ice is now scheduled to be ready for Aug. 29.
