Dun­ve­gan ready to rock in GSL fi­nals

The Glengarry News - - Sports In The Glens -

BY SEAN BRAY Sports Ed­i­tor The Dun­ve­gan se­nior women’s team of the Glen­garry Soc­cer League swept its semi­fi­nal se­ries, dis­patch­ing Lag­gan in two games, to ad­vance to the cham­pi­onship se­ries.

As of press time, the op­po­nent for the fi­nals had yet to be de­ter­mined, as Alexan­dria FC and Van­kleek Hill ‘A’ were booked to play a de­cid­ing match last night, Aug. 16. Please check for up­dates on­line at www.sportsinth­e­glens.ca

Dun­ve­gan opened its play­off sea­son with a 2-0 vic­tory over Lag­gan on Aug. 9, as Michelle DeRe­pentigny scored twice.

Two days later, the con­test went into over­time, where Team Blue pre­vailed 1-0 over the Black Shirts. The goal scorer’s name was not avail­able.

In the other semi­fi­nal se­ries, Van­kleek Hill ‘A’ took the opener 2-0, on mark­ers from Caro Ranger and Alexia Chau­mont.

Game two saw Alexan­dria FC turn the ta­bles on the Grey Shirts, as Team Red won 2-0.

Court­ney La­plante had the early goal, with Krista Chad­dock scor­ing late, in time added on.

In be­tween, Alexan­dria FC goal­keeper Lo­gan Leger turned aside a penalty kick.

Dur­ing the reg­u­lar sea­son, the north­ern­ers amassed the best record, for 40 points, one more than Lag­gan. Dun­ve­gan fin­ished third (37 points), fol­lowed by Alexan­dria FC (29).

Glen Ne­vis also had 29 points, but missed out on the post-sea­son party due to the league’s tiebreak­ing for­mula.

The cham­pi­onship se­ries will be a best-of-three af­fair this year and is ex­pected to be­gin later this week.

Once con­firmed, we will post de­tails to our web­site.

Last year’s win­ner was Lag­gan, which beat Dun­ve­gan.
