Blazers withstand late Hearts surge
BY SEAN BRAY Sports Editor Facing a 3-0 deficit early in the second half, the Glengarry Hearts U16 girls made a match of it in the late going, but just couldn’t find the equalizer, as the ladies lost for just the second time this season, in 14 trips onto the pitch.
The Aug. 18 contest, played at Island Park in Alexandria, went into the books as a 4-3 win for the Seaway Valley Blazers, out of Cornwall.
Emma Bacchiochi scored twice for the Hearts, with the other tally notched by Taylor Simard.
Blazers markswomen were Alyssa Contant and Chloe Legault, each with two.
Seaway Valley is the only team to have beaten the Glengarry side, and now they have done it twice.
Simard is the Hearts’ leading goal scorer, with 8, followed by Bacchiochi (7), and Stephanie Leask (6).
The Blazers’ win also moved Seaway into first place in the standings, with 34 points and a game in hand on the Hearts, who have 32 points.
Glengarry’s record is 10 wins, 2 ties, 2 losses, while Seaway sports a mark of 11 wins, 1 tie, and 1 loss.
Interestingly, both of the Blazers’ blemishes came against the Ottawa Internationals, a team that the Hearts twice spanked, on scores of 3-0 and 5-0.
