Gaels win 7th straight

The Glengarry News - - Sports In The Glens -

BY SEAN BRAY Sports Editor Glen­garry District’s ju­nior boys bas­ket­ball team chalked up an­other win on Mon­day af­ter­noon, con­clud­ing reg­u­lar-sea­son play with a 7-2 record.

What’s most re­mark­able about this, how­ever, is that the team’s vic­to­ries have come all in a row, af­ter the boys dropped their first two matches of the sea­son.

The most- re­cent tri­umph came against the Se­away Spar­tans, who man­aged a brief lead in the se­cond quar­ter, be­fore the Gaels went on to pre­vail hand­ily, 53-33.

Dove Rick­erd led the Glen­garry of­fence, putting on a clinic with 34 points that in­cluded a trio of treys.

Xaa­vian Ali also had a pair of three- point­ers, while Bai­ley Pid­geon and Odin Mar­furt Break­en­ridge each sank one from be­yond the arc.

Pre­ceed­ing the ju­nior tilt, the Glen­garry se­niors had the floor, where they played to a 47-24 vic­tory over the Spar­tans.

Daryl Blondin had the hot hand from long range, drain­ing five three-point­ers to go along with one deuce, as he led GD scor­ers with 17 points.

The of­fence was well-dis­trib­uted too, with most of the Gaels count­ing in the scor­ing

Glen­garry’s se­nior squad, with the win on Mon­day, has a 3-5 record and will play its last game of the reg­u­lar sea­son on Thurs­day af­ter­noon at St. Joseph’s in Corn­wall.

The only losses for GD’s ju­niors this sea­son came against Roth­well- Osnabruck and St.
