Pipers lose heartbreaker
TheGalt Pipers senior football team won’t be heading to the Bol d’Or this weekend, but they came close! The senior team lost last weekend’s final against Polyvalente Belanger, 42 to 6. The Galt team, coached by Andrew Hynd, had a great year, winning their football division and the Sports Ethique banner. Coach’s game report
“We played a very good, very well coached team. We were ready, but execution wise, Poly Belanger just executed better than we did, and their QB had a phenomenal game considering the weather circumstances. Our offense took two major hits in the 2nd quarter as we lost our fullback Jared Chute for the game with an ankle injury. Jared had run for 67 yards in a quarter and a half as the defense was focused on stopping our leading rusher Will Simard. Soon after, we lost our QB Tyler McBean for the game with a shoulder injury and that drastically affected our game plan, as we had to run a Wildcat like formation for the rest of the game. It is from this formation that we got our touchdown, as Mathieu Sullivan - Weare scampered 42 yards in the third quarter. But, their Defense over loaded the box, and made it hard to drive on them, especially with no passing game to keep them honest since McBean was out. That being said, the boys never once let their heads down, nor gave up on any play, and I could not have been prouder of the effort they gave in the game, and over the course of the season. Especially the graduating players, some of whom have played for Alexander Galt since Grade 6. You could see the emotion in their eyes after the game, and I certainly felt it as well.” Seen in the photo to announce the celebratory hockey match were: (front) (behind L. to r.) municipal councillor for sports and recreation; player; Coaticook minor hockey;
