War­riors look to build on pos­i­tives

The Glengarry News - - The Opinion Page -

De­spite fall­ing to 0-2 on the high school foot­ball sea­son, with a 20-7 loss last Fri­day to CCVS, the Tagwi War­riors have pos­i­tives on which to build as they pre­pare for their next game, set for Oct. 18 ver­sus Glen­garry.

The War­riors held the Raiders to 13 firsthalf points and played them even in the sec­ond half, where quar­ter­back Schuyler Schel­len­berg capped off a later drive with a 23-yard pass to Con­nor MacMil­lan in the end zone, for the touch­down. Schel­len­berg also booted the con­vert kick.

The boys were de­cid­edly ex­cited, scor­ing their first points of the sea­son, after be­ing shut out the pre­vi­ous week, 31-0, by de­fend­ing cham­pion la Citadelle.

Tagwi threat­ened to score in two other op­por­tu­ni­ties ear­lier in the game, in­clud­ing in the wan­ing mo­ments of the open­ing half when the War­riors got in­side the five-yard line, be­fore the drive was stopped by the

BAT

Raiders.

Amongst de­fen­sive high­lights, Tyler Mur­ray broke through the CC of­fen­sive line to sack the Raiders QB for a five-yard loss, and Daniel Cantin pulled down an in­ter­cep­tion.

Just one other game was played last week, the Rose Bowl, with St. Joseph’s pre­vail­ing 30-5 over la Citadelle, un­der the lights.

The event was a fundraiser for the Cana­dian Breast Can­cer Foun­da­tion.
