The Glengarry News - - SPORTS IN THE GLENS - Sean Bray

Foot­ball for stu­dent-ath­letes in Grades 9 and 10 is sched­uled to kick off to­day in Cornwall, where the Glen­garry Gaels will play the St. Joseph’s Pan­thers and the North Grenville Knights.

The league plays a six-on-six for­mat, tournament style, with a pair of one-hour games for each of three teams. Field size is nar­rower than a stan­dard foot­ball field, though they play the full length.

The pri­mary aim of this league is to de­velop foot­ball skills and knowl­edge, in prepa­ra­tion for play­ing at the high school var­sity level.

Other Oct. 3 ac­tion will take place in Rus­sell, with St. Thomas Aquinas, Gananoque, and Ren­frew see­ing ac­tion.

Next week, on Oct. 10, play moves to Alexan­dria, where GDHS will host St. Joseph’s and Gananoque.

Game start times are set for noon, 1 p.m., and 2 p.m.

The sea­son sched­ule con­tin­ues Oct. 17 and 24, with a fi­nale on Oct. 31 for a full-length game.
