The Rockland Nats crush the Navan Grads


Jets are next with 37 points, the Vankleek Hill Cougars with 33, theMorrisburg Lions at 24, the South Grenville Rangers 20, Blackburn Inferno 11, and the Bytown Royals at the bottom with seven points. Their basement-level finishes in the 2017- 2018 schedule have eliminated Blackburn and Bytown from the NCJHL playoffs. But the February game schedule for the other four teams ahead of themdid not finish with the Family Day weekend. The NCJHL decided to hold a two-night pre-playoffmini-playoffs this week, putting the Rangers against the Jets, and the Lions against the Cougars. South Grenville and Morrisburg hosted the Tuesday night ope- ning game of the pre-playoffs mini. Wednes- day night, the Cougars face the Lions once more in Vankleek Hill while the Jets take off from their home ice against the Rangers. Results of the pre-playoffmini series will help determine whether or not the Cougars move on to the NCJHL playoffs rounds. St- Isidore and Clarence Creek are both secure in their berths for the playoffs. Rockland wasn’t ready to stop yet. Mat- thew Vermaeten found the back of the net 41 seconds into the second period, giving his team the 3-0 edge over the Grads. Joe McGrath then responded for Navan with his goal almost halfway through the period, but Nats’ Alex Robert widened his team’s lead with his goal a couple of minutes later. The third period was goalless for both teams, leaving the score 4-1 for the Nats. Alex Robert was named first star of the game for his goal and his two assists. Jacob Smith of the Navan Grads was the second star and the third star went to Nats’ Mathieu Blanchette. The Nats play next in Ottawa against the the Navan Grads at the Navan Memorial Centre. Raphael Gosselin fired things up for the Nats with his goal, barely two minutes into the first period, assisted by teammates Antoine Leblanc and Alex Robert. Mathieu Blanchette then gave the Nats a 2-0 lead with 45 seconds to go in the first period.
