Com­bined ef­fort pre­vails

A new divi­sion and com­bined teams were the story of the ju­ve­nile boys group this sum­mer in the Glen­garry Soc­cer League.

The divi­sion re­placed U19 and U16 lev­els from past years, and saw one of the joint squads, Dun­ve­gan / Van­kleek Hill, snag the 2016 cham­pi­onship on a rainy Satur­day evening in Alexan­dria.

The wa­ter-logged field chal­lenged player foot­ing on both sides at times, while the vic­tors took ad­van­tage of their op­por­tu­ni­ties to sink the Alexan­dria team 7-0.

Rain show­ers var­ied in in­ten­sity through­out the match, as did the emo­tional level, which ref­eree Marc DeRe­pentigny man­aged to keep a lid on with his stern de­meanour and a hand­ful of cards.

David Spacek led the of­fence with a hat trick. Nik Ay­otte scored twice, and Lu­cas Guyen­non and Patrick Poirier each found the net once.

The one-day play­off tour­na­ment opened with Char-Lan beat­ing Lag­gan / Glen Sand­field 2 on a 2-1 ef­fort. Char-Lan was later bounced by the even­tual cham­pi­ons, 1-0.

Alexan­dria won its first match 1-0 over Lag­gan / Glen Sand­field 1.
