Glen Sandfield bests Dunvegan for crown
BY SEAN BRAY Sports Editor Sunday night’s Glengarry Soccer League U19 girls championship match, played under the lights at the Glengarry Sports Palace pitch in Alexandria, saw Glen Sandfield ride a pair of first-half goals to victory over defending titlist Dunvegan.
Less than a minute into the match, the ball came out of the dark corner at the north end of the field, setting up the early marker for Glen Sandfield.
Seven minutes later, a successful penalty kick, awarded for a hand ball in the box, made it 2-0.

unable to crack Glen Sandfield’s defensive shield with anything too threatening.
