HOCKEY closes out the regular season with a split

The Islanders were playing their last 2 games of the season against top teams. Thursday night, the team visited Edouard Montpetit, a very important game for the standings. John Abbott took an early lead with a goal by Hailey Burns. A quick reply by Edouard Montpetit made the game 1-1. Emma Piers replied right back to make the score 2-1 after the first period. Sydney Berta and Jamie Kyle were the 2 other scorers for JAC, the Islanders take the game 4-2 along with the head to head advantage against Edouard.

In Friday night’s home game, the Islanders faced Limoilou for a second week in a row. The number one team in the league managed to score 6 goals. Hailey Burns was the only scorer for JAC. The Isles will now wait and see if they will finish 3rd or 4th in the league, a ¼ final matchup against Dawson or Andre Laurendeau is set to kick off the weekend of March 8th.

Men’s BASKETBALL let one slip on the south shore

On the road to St Lambert last Friday, the team battled hard in the first half to outscore the Cavaliers 40-28 in the half. The Isles continued their impressive play, however Champlain’s overall size and depth were able to decrease the deficit to a single point at the end of the third quarter 51-50.

The battle weary Isles fought hard in the fourth quarter but Champlain took the quarter by a score of 35-14 to win the game with a final score of 85-65. Abbott’s leading scorer was Donovan Allen-Beckles 22 pts, and Lucas Giangi had his first double-double 10 pts and 10 rebounds.
