Last Friday at the Glengarry Sports Palace in Alexandria, members of the OPP, bolstered by teachers Ryan Winter, Glen Campbell, and Kelsey Thomson, took on student hockey players from Glengarry District High School, in an afternoon tilt enjoyed by throngs of students filling the stands.
Guest referees Jacob Peerenboom and John Robinson officiated proceedings, that saw the Badgers prevail in overtime, 7-6. Jason Cholette scored the game-winner for the OPP. Gaels finding the net in the contest were Liam MacDonald (2), Ethan Attridge (2), Kevin Doyle, and Lachlan MacDonald.
