The Glengarry News - - Sports In The Glen -

BY SEAN BRAY Sports Ed­i­tor It was a ter­rific start to the high school girls hockey sea­son for the Char-Lan Cru­saders, as the ladies scored a pair of de­ci­sive re­sults in Dec. 20 ac­tion, in Alexan­dria.

Af­ter get­ting a bye for the league’s pre­vi­ous tour­na­ment, the Cru­saders be­gan the 2016-17 cam­paign with a 5-0 shutout of the GDHS Gaels.

With Brit­tany MacLeod Mayes be­tween the pipes for the Gaels, the first pe­riod went into the books score­less.

Glen­garry took con­trol in the sec­ond, though, start­ing with a Brenna Thom­son tally just two min­utes in, set up by Han­nah Thom­son, who would also score later.

Other Char-Lan tal­lies were net­ted by Sara Lak­ing, Quinn Mul­hearn, and Makayla Petrie.

Chan­tal Vi­varais, Lak­ing, and Mul­hearn picked up ad­di­tional helpers.

Play­ing Tagwi later in the day. the Cru­saders got an early marker from H. Thom­son and never look back.

She would go on to net a hat trick in the game, as the Cru­saders crushed the War­riors 8-1.

Chelsea Cayer counted four points, in­clud­ing a pair of goals.

Also find­ing the back of the Gaels’ net were B. Thom­son, Meara MacDonell, and Grace La­plante.

Other as­sists went to Katherine Thom­son (2), B. Thom­son, Petrie, La­plante, Emily Tourangeau, and H. Thom­son.

Tagwi’s lone tally came in the late go­ing, with 1:38 re­main­ing on the clock, as Sierra Wood­side snuck one in, set up by Aimee Van Loon and Kate Kelly.

As it turned out, that was the only goal the War­riors would get on the day, as they were blanked by La Ci­tadelle in their other ac­tion.

Glen­garry District’s other con­test saw the Gaels spanked by St. Joseph’s 7-1, with El­lie MacKin­non cred­ited for the goal.

Earn­ing as­sists were Emma Pasco and Emma Hardy.

The girls from Holy Trin­ity went un­beaten on the day, nab­bing a win and a tie.

The vic­tory was all-the-more sweet, as it came against Catholic ri­val St. Joseph’s, a 2-0 ef­fort.

Jas­min Riel back­stopped the shutout, while Kara McCle­naghan and Leah McDon­ald had the goals.

Rec­og­nized with as­sists were Madi­son Pawis, Taylor Barkley, and Vanessa Cho­lette.

The Fal­cons also played to a 4-4 tie with La Ci­tadelle. Les Pa­tri­otes led for much of the game, as HT had to bat­tle from be­hind.

Goals were notched by McCle­naghan, Emma Van­derBurg, Pawis, and Barkley, who scored with just 1:48 left on the clock to get the tie for HT.
