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.

Ages 3-5: 1st Abi­gail Her­bold, 2nd Wil­liam Strain- Carl, 3rd Mered­ith Fraser.

Ages 6-8: 1st Don­ald McDougald, 2nd Ju­nas Blanken­ship, 3rd Lo­gan Ma­cLeod.

Ages 9-12: 1st Wil­liam Beck­stead-Hol­man, 2nd Ma­son Rack­house, 3rd Phillipe Cler­mont.
