Celtic tops amongst tier 2 men

The Glengarry News - - Sports In The Glens -

The Glen Sand­field Celtic Ole Boyz capped off their 10th sea­son of play in the Glen­garry Soc­cer League’s tier 2 men’s di­vi­sion by win­ning the play­off cham­pi­onship on Mon­day night, in Wil­liamstown, with a 2-1 ex­tra time ef­fort, over the McCrim­mon Com­bines.

Ryan Cun­ning of the White Shirts opened the scor­ing mid­way through the first half, with the Celtics’ Wes­ley Stephen­son re­ply­ing be­fore the in­ter­val.

The sec­ond half saw both sides trade chances, with Celtic goal- keeper Bren­dan Reid mak­ing a num­ber of saves to hold the score.

Three min­utes into over­time, Shawn “Crazy Legs” Mon­troy set up Ian “Smokey” Butcher for the golden goal.

For the Celtic, the tri­umph marked the team’s ninth in its his­tory and the fifth in a row.

This, the 25th sea­son for the di­vi­sion, was one of its most com­pet­i­tive by far. Game three of the fi­nals was par­tic­u­larly so, with McCrim­mon press­ing and danger­ous through­out the match.
