Pipers lose heart­breaker

Stanstead Journal - - AROUND TOWN - Sher­brooke, Len­noxville

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;
