Hockey team keeps on rolling


At home on Friday night the Isles took it to Edouard Montpetit beating 5-1 with goals from Audrey Gervais, Laurie Hachez, Sandrine Hachez, Kiana Drcar and Hailey Burns. Aube Racine stopped 37/38 shots to earn her 8th win of the year. On Sunday the team travelled to Lennoxville to pick up their 12th win of the year by a score of 2-1. Juliana Classen and Alyson Blanchette lit the lamp for the Isles. Aube Racine was good on 33 of 34 shots to pick up her league leading 9th win heading into the holiday break.

Swim team uses home advantage for biggest win yet

Friday night in the Casgrain pool the Isles had their most dominant performance of the year. Combined the teams won by 199 points, the men taking first by 180.5 and the women placing in second for the first time only 94.5 points behind St Jerome.

Women’s Basketball come up short in St Jean

An offensive power outage in the final quarter cost the Islanders dearly as they dropped a 65-55 decision to the St. Jean Geants. The Islanders led by three heading into the final ten minutes but managed just five points in the quarter. The defeat dropped Abbott’s record to 5-2 and a tie for second place with St. Jean and Vieux-Montreal although Vieux-Montreal has a game in hand.

Andrea Batrla led all scorers with 20 points while Annie Pollender added 11 in the losing cause.

Men’s Basketball win in Ste Foy

In their last game of the semester the Isles made the long trip to Ste Foy and came out victorious by a final of 92-85. Rupert Edwards Jr led all scorers with 28 points. Elie Mouyal had a career high offensive output with 21 points. The victory puts them just one win out of a playoff spot at the mid-way point of the season. 


Enjoy the holiday break, next league action will be Men’s Basketball vs Montmorency on January 14th.
