The foot­ball teams at Alexan­der Galt High School had an out­stand­ing weekend of foot­ball with a per­fect 4-0 record.

The Ban­tam Foot­ball team re­mained un­de­feated af­ter a 40-0 win over Jean Raim­bault from the Beauce re­gion.

Once again run­ning back Jarod Stone led the Piper at­tack by scor­ing two early touch­downs, one on an 80 yard run on their open­ing drive and another 30-yard pass from quar­ter­back Cody Gal­li­chon. Full­back Bran­don Vail­lan­court bulled his way for two touch­downs of his own while Gal­li­chon con­verted pass­ing ma­jors to re­ceivers Sean War­ren and Michael Vil­leneuve.

The se­nior team picked up their first win of the sea­son on Sun­day by dom­i­nat­ing the BCS Bears 42-12. Quar­ter­back Chad Buck led the of­fense with three rush­ing touch­downs, in­clud­ing a 55 yard run on the open­ing drive of the game. Wide re­ceiver Cameron Burns caught two pass­ing touch­downs; one of 27 yards and one of 53 yards while run­ning back Mathieu Sul­li­vanWeare scored his first touch­down of the year on a nifty run. Kicker Shawn Pax­ton de­liv­ered five of six pos­si­ble ex­tra points. Twins Thomas and Ja­cob Roth­ney were named the code­fen­sive play­ers of the game with an in­ter­cep­tion and nu­mer­ous tack­les.

The girls flag foot­ball team moved into first place in their tough di­vi­sion with a pair of vic­to­ries over Sacre Coeur and Le Tri­o­let. The girls from Galt dis­trib­uted the ball well in game one with touch­downs from Ash­ley Wright, Julie Bob­bitt and Lind­say Moore. Kayla Bolduc, Wright and Moore also con­verted im­por­tant con­ver­sions as the Pipers squeaked out a last minute vic­tory 22-20. The girls from Galt con­tin­ued their fine team play in the sec­ond half of their dou­ble header as Claudia Gagnon scored two ma­jors while Sofia Marue and Julie Bob­bitt rounded out the scor­ing to give the Lady Pipers a con­vinc­ing 27-0 shutout win over Tri­o­let. Soc­cer Roundup:

The Ban­tam girls soc­cer team re­mained un­de­feated in ETIAC play as the bounced the Spar­tans from Stanstead Col­lege 4-1. Jaya Gre­goire con­tin­ued her con­sis­tent play with two fine mark­ers while strik­ers Leanne Mar­monier and Car­loine Fisette round out the Piper at­tack.

The Ju­nior boys team con­tin­ued to score in bunches as they downed Stanstead Col­lege 5-2. Diego de Alba Ramos demon­strated his out­stand­ing soc­cer skills again with another hat trick in the first half. For­wards Bryer Smith and Matthew Horni­brook chipped in as they al­ways do with a goal each to so­lid­ify a strong Piper vic­tory.

The Se­nior boys jumped back in the win col­umn with a 3-1 home win over the Rich­mond Raiders. The boys from Galt set the tone of the game early as they scored three goals in the first fif­teen min­utes of the game. Vet­eran striker Alex Mckin­ney led the way with two goals and 13-year-old sen­sa­tion Michael Fon­taine pot­ted his first goal of the sea­son.

The Ju­nior girls trav­eled down route 143 last week and met their tough­est com­pe­ti­tion of the sea­son as they tied the girls from Stanstead 1-1. Brianna Grapes put Galt on the score­board in the first half, but the girls from Galt did not match the in­ten­sity of the Spar­tans in the sec­ond half and set­tled for the draw.

The Ban­tam boys put their play off hopes in jeop­ardy as they lost 1-0 to Rich­mond. The lit­tle guys from Galt had sev­eral scor­ing chances, but the Raiders goalie stymied their threats ev­ery time.
