Cru­saders boys fall short in hockey

Char-Lan District High School’s boys hockey team com­peted at the SD&G cham­pi­onship tour­na­ment on Feb. 24 in Corn­wall, miss­ing a few guys due to in­juries and com­mit­ments to other teams.

Bot­tom line, says coach Sean O’Far­rell, the squad “just couldn't get it done,” de­spite play­ing hard and get­ting an “awe­some” ef­fort from Angus McRae in net.

The Cru­saders lost their semi­fi­nal 4-2 to La Ci­tadelle, as their sea­son came to an end. Goal scor­ers were Mikey Small and Owen Hughes.

Ju­nior boys bas­ket­ball play­offs

In ju­nior boys high school bas­ket­ball play­off ac­tion, on Feb. 17, GDHS lost its quar­ter-fi­nal match 38-31 to La Ci­tadelle. Dove Rickard led the Gaels of­fence with 18 points, and Cameron MacDon­ald added 6.

Coach Katherine Adams, in re­flect­ing on the day, says, “We knew go­ing into the play­off game that this would be a close one. We tied them in the reg­u­lar sea­son and came up short in over­time.”

In this game, “The Pa­tri­otes had a very strong of­fen­sive start. The score was 17-3 after the first quar­ter. It then be­came a game of catch-up. Goals were set quar­ter-by-quar­ter, and we man­aged to hold them to a three-point lead in the third quar­ter. In the fi­nal quar­ter, the Pa­tri­otes scored an early three-point shot, widen­ing the gap, and we just didn't have time to catch up.”

On the sea­son, Adams ex­plains, “Over­all, the ju­nior boys team saw ma­jor im­prove­ments in de­fen­sive strate­gies and worked hard on re­bound­ing. In­di­vid­ual of­fen­sive skills keep get­ting bet­ter. Bas­ket­ball at Glen­garry con­tin­ues to flour­ish.” La Ci­tadelle went on to lose in the semi­fi­nal, 50-23 to Holy Trin­ity. In the other group, Tagwi dropped its quar­ter-fi­nal 49-40 to L’Her­itage. The Drag­ons bowed out in the semi­fi­nal to St. Lawrence, which went on to beat the Fal­cons 47-37 in the cham­pi­onship tilt.

SD&G se­nior boys bas­ket­ball

The Feb. 18 tour­na­ment saw GDHS hand­ily beat Tagwi in quar­ter­fi­nal play, go­ing on to lose by 28 points to St. Lawrence in the semi. Two days later, the Saints won the cham­pi­onship over Holy Trin­ity. In look­ing back on the Gaels’ per­for­mance, coach Guy La­marche says, “We started out the [semi­fi­nal] game play­ing strong de­fence,” with the Gaels keep­ing the score low, down by just two points at the end of the first pe­riod. “Foul trou­ble led to a tough sec­ond quar­ter, and the Saints ex­tended their lead to dou­ble dig­its, which they main­tained un­til the end of the game.

“Spencer Lordz had an­other out­stand­ing game, but un­for­tu­nately it was the last game of his in­cred­i­ble high school ca­reer as one of the most in­flu­en­tial play­ers to ever play bas­ket­ball at GD. His lead­er­ship led to two trips to EOSSAA, in­clud­ing a sil­ver medal per­for­mance, an SD&G cham­pi­onship, and two trips to the Up­per Canada Cup.”

Mi­nor ban­tam Wild draw even

Game three for the Wild is set for to­day, March 4, in Ottawa. On Feb. 28, the squad dropped the se­ries opener 4-3.
