Foul weather fouls up NCJHL weekend

It was a foul weather weekend for mid-January and it fouled up the game schedules for all three of Prescott-Russell’s teams in the National Capital Junior Hockey League.

Both the Vankleek Hill Cougars and St-Isidore had one of their two scheduled games postponed to a later date because of the heavy icy rain over the weekend. Both of the games for the Clarence Creek Castors will be rescheduled to later dates because of the weather.

Vankleek Hill and St-Isidore had their Friday night road games to play but the results for the January 10 events had opposite results for the clubs.

The Cougars lost their game to the Bytown Royals 6-3. The Cougars scored all three of their goals in first period but still the Royals ended up ruling the opening session with four of their six goals in first period and then single goals in each of the following periods to extend their lead.

St-Isidore grounded the Metcalfe Jets 4-1 last Friday night with the visiting team dominating the play in first and second periods. The Jets managed their one goal in the final period to match the last point scored by St-Isidore.

The Cougars have a rematch on home ice this Saturday night against the Royals then head to St-Isidore Sunday night for a game there. That is also the sole game for St-Isidore in this week’s NCJHL schedule. The Castors are in Bytown January 17 and return home Sunday to host the West Carleton Inferno.
