Week­end Sweep For Piper Foot­ball

Stanstead Journal - - SPORTS -

Ju­nior and Se­nior foot­ball teams from Alexan­der Galt High School trav­eled to Poly­va­lente Mon­tignac in Lac Me­gan­tic this past Sun­day and left with their first wins of the sea­son.

Piper run­ning back Jarod Stone con­tin­ued to be a force in the tough RSEQ league. Stone opened the scor­ing with an im­pres­sive 60-yard run in the first quar­ter, but Mon­tignac tied the game late in the first quar­ter. Stone gave the Pipers the lead once again when he re­turned a punt for 70 yards in the third quar­ter. How­ever, Les Be­liers tied the game again with a long late drive in the third quar­ter. Af­ter a long drive of their own early in the fourth quar­ter, Galt quar­ter­back Noah Ben­nett ran a quar­ter­back sneak from two yards for the ma­jor. Af­ter con­vert­ing the con­vert for the first time in the game the Pipers held a 19-12 lead. Me­gan­tic moved the ball into the red zone with sec­onds re­main­ing, but Stone would write the fi­nal script when he in­ter­cepted the ball to seal their first win of the sea­son and even their record at 1-1.

Stone fin­ished the game with 250 all-pur­pose yards while Ben­nett threw for 180 yards. The Piper de­fense made huge im­prove­ments from the pre­vi­ous week when they lost 39-18 to Ecole Se­condaire Clare­tain from Vic­to­ri­av­ille.

They will host un­de­feated Ecole Se­condaire des Pion­niers from Three Rivers next Sun­day at 1:00 on Halsall Field.

The Se­nior Boys foot­ball team opened its sea­son with an im­pres­sive 46-13 win. Run­ning back Wil­liam Si­mard led the of­fen­sive at­tack for the Pipers with three rush­ing touch­downs and 150 yards. Full­back Sean Gid­dings scored a 15-yard touch­down on a screen pass from quar­ter­back Tyler McBean and added a rush­ing touch­down of his own. Kicker Shawn Pax­ton con­verted all six con­verts and even hit a 33-yard field goal.

The Piper de­fense swarmed the Mon­tignac of­fense with 8 sacks and De­fen­sive end Cedric Tan­guay picked up a fum­bled ball and ran it into the end zone.

Galt also dom­i­nated on spe­cial teams as Wil­liam Bre­ton blocked two punts and one field goal.

An­drew Hynd’s troops will take on La Ruche next Satur­day as they travel to Ma­gog for a 2:00 kick off.
