Falcons grind up Gaels
It was another rough game for the Glengarry Gaels varsity football team, as the boys remained winless on the season, following a rout by the Holy Trinity Falcons, 34-6.
The Sept. 26 effort included a smattering of solid defensive plays from the Gaels, while the offence struggled. The lone Glengarry major came in the late going, when Logan Keurentjes returned a Falcons kickoff the distance.
Holy Trinity’s offence was led by Jeremy Latour and Joe diStefano, each with two touchdowns. Charles Laplante recorded one TD, while Emilio Sami kicked four converts.

Coach Rich Keenan admits, “We lost pretty handily,” adding that there were good things on which to build. “Defence played a strong game and generated some turnovers, and special teams also did a great job. Our offence played a solid first half but needs to work on finishing as strongly as they start.”
The week’s other game saw CCVS take a two-touchdown lead on St. Joseph’s, before the Panthers rallied to go on to a 26-18 triumph.
Standings entering week three: 1 Holy Trinity (2-0), 2 la Citadelle (2-0), 3 St. Joseph’s (1-0), 4 Tagwi (0-1), 5 Glengarry (0-2), 6 CCVS (0-2).
While the Falcons get a bye this week, the Warriors and Raiders were scheduled to play Tuesday afternoon, and the Patriotes and Panthers were slated to battle in the Rose Bowl charity game last night.
