Tagwi aiming for playoffs
Four high school girls hockey teams are tied for second place with 7 points through three tournaments of SDGAA league play, and among them are the Tagwi Warriors and Holy Trinity Falcons.
St. Joseph’s has already locked up the top seed, perfect in five games. But then things get interesting. Tagwi has two tough games remaining, scheduled to hit the ice against the Panthers and the Falcons.
The other teams in the traffic jam are North Dundas and La Citadelle, which will square off in the Feb. 15 tournament, set for Long Sault.
Seaway, at 1-5, and winless Char-Lan are already out of the playoff picture.
The Crusaders will conclude their season with two games at the Long Sault tourney.
