Alexan­der Galt’s stu­dent body held its tra­di­tional Fall Spirit Day last week and the sup­port pro­pelled the Pipers to three big vic­to­ries. Along the way the Pipers claimed three Prin­ci­pal/ Head­mas­ter Cups against Bishop’s Col­lege School.

The Se­nior foot­ball team was look­ing to grab its sec­ond win over the BCS Bears within a week, but the cross town ri­vals had other plans as they jumped out to a 28-27 half­time lead. How­ever, Galt made a few ad­just­ments at half­time, which helped them win the high scor­ing af­fair 49-40 when the fi­nal whis­tle sounded. Cameron Burns caught a nice pass from quar­ter­back Chad Buck for a touch­down while the Piper run­ning game pro­vided the rest of the dam­age. Run­ning backs, Matt Sul­li­van Weare, Jared Chute, Sean Gid­dings all ran for ma­jors. How­ever, Buck so­lid­i­fied the Piper vic­tory by scor­ing the last three touch­downs by run­ning the ball. The vic­tory al­lowed the Fight­ing Pipers to cap­ture the Prin­ci­pal/Head­mas­ters Cup.

The Se­nior Soc­cer teams also hosted the BCS Bears for their tra­di­tional Prin­ci­pal/Head­mas­ters Cup for the 20th time in its his­tory on Spirit Day. It was a beau­ti­ful fall af­ter­noon to play soc­cer and the 800 hun­dred plus stu­dents and staff sup­ported their teams on to vic­tory.

The se­nior boys won against 3-0 BCS thanks to an out­stand­ing three­goal per­for­mance from striker Bran­don Des­ruis­seaux. The game was tied at the half, but the vet­eran striker scored all three goals within ten min­utes mid­way through the sec­ond half and the Piper de­fense foiled ev­ery Bear scor­ing op­por­tu­nity.

The se­nior girls also won their game against BCS 5-0 with five dif­fer­ent play­ers hit­ting the score sheet, Cort­ney Burn­ham, El­iza Stevens and Lind­say Moore all scored in the first half while Myr­iam Elkas and Lynsey Pinkston added insurance mark­ers in the sec­ond

Galt’s se­nior boys foot­ball team with the Prin­ci­pal’s Cup.
