Fal­cons grind up Gaels

The Glengarry News - - SPORTS IN THE GLENS - The Tagwi War­riors saw their first ac­tion of the sea­son last Fri­day, hum­bled 31-0 by the de– Sean Bray

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.
