Mon­day saw the SDGAA high school girls soccer sea­son kick off in Wil­liamstown, where the Char-Lan Cru­saders se­nior squad held off the Tagwi War­riors, 4-1.

Play­ing in breezy, cool con­di­tions, Char-Lan got a goal early, as a ball sent in off a cor­ner kick rolled off the Tagwi keeper’s hands and just over the line.

The Cru­saders had fre­quent stretches of sus­tained pres­sure, test­ing the op­pos­ing de­fence and goalie.

The host side made it 2-0 late in the first half, cap­i­tal­iz­ing on sus­tained ball con­trol.

Tagwi had the early edge in sec­ond- half play, but it was Char-Lan that found its scor­ing touch, as the Cru­saders mounted an at­tack, with a fin­ish­ing shot from the top of the 18-yard box that arced over the goalie.

The War­riors con­tin­ued to work hard and were re­warded with a goal of their own, but Char-Lan iced it late, on a well-placed shot to the far side of the net.

Tagwi’s goal was net­ted by Shelby Booker, while Cara MacDonald scored twice for the Cru­saders. Also find­ing the goal for the home side were Lee-Anne War­den and Han­nah McDonell.

The St. Joseph’s Pan­thers were also in Wil­liamstown on Mon­day, bag­ging a pair of wins.

First, they scored a lop­sided shutout vic­tory over Tagwi.

Next up, de­spite an early CharLan goal from MacDonald, the Pan­thers soon took con­trol to hand­ily beat the Cru­saders.
