Hearts boys in search of perfection
BY SEAN BRAY Sports Editor With a decisive 7-0 victory in Alexandria on Sunday evening, the Glengarry U14 boys Hearts soccer team is within striking distance of a perfect season.
The East Region Soccer League team has a record of 10-0-0 in league play, and goalkeeper Logan Keurentjes has backstopped five shutouts.
The most recent win secured first place for the Hearts, with perfect all that’s left to be decided.
Scoring on Sunday night were Gabriel McGuire (2), Kenneth MacMillan (2), Jimmy Bourbonnais, Todd McBain, and Justin McNairn.
It was the boys’ second victory this month, in a light schedule.
Glengarry previously spanked Carleton Place Lanark United 12-0, on goals from Bourbonnais (3), Justin Milley (2), MacMillan, Mikael Schnupp, McBain, Jared McLeod, Maxence Poirier-Joanette, Jeffrey Willard, and McNairn.
McBain is the team’s leading scorer, having potted 14 thus far. Bourbonnais is second on the team, with 10.
The Hearts are slated to wrap up their ERSL season on the road Aug. 24, against second-place Ottawa City (6-1-2).
The Glengarry squad is coached by D. A. MacMillan, Pascal Joanette, and Richard Willard.
The expectation is that next season the group will move up to play as a U15 squad at the tier 1 level.
