The Glen­garry Soc­cer League’s se­nior women’s best-of-three fi­nal se­ries is un­der­way, as top-seeded Dun­ve­gan is bat­tling up­start Glen Ne­vis.

The se­ries opener was booked for last night (Aug. 15), with game two set for to­mor­row, Aug. 17, on the Lochiel pitch. Start time will be 8:30 p.m.

Should it be needed, a third match will be played in Dun­ve­gan, on Aug. 22.

Dun­ve­gan is the de­fend­ing cham­pion, hav­ing last year dis- patched Van­kleek Hill for the crown.

The 2017 play­off semi­fi­nal saw the Blue Shirts get past CharLan FC in three games.

The opener went in Dun­ve­gan’s favour, 3-1, but Char-Lan drew even with a win in the sec­ond con­test, pre­vail­ing by the same score. Kelly McLeod scored twice to pace the vic­tors in the Aug. 8 game, with Krista Chad­dock notch­ing the other Char-Lan tally. Re­ply­ing for Dun­ve­gan was Robyn Gan­dia.

That set the stage for the de­cid­ing bat­tle two days later.

Char-Lan player Lo­gan Leger tells The News that her team was play­ing short, in what was her first game back af­ter re­cov­ery from a frac­tured foot. Kather­ine Oeg­gerli found the back of the net for Char-Lan’s lone goal, while Emily Mac­Don­ald paced the Dun­ve­gan of­fence, with a pair. Also scor­ing were Michelle DeRe­pentigny and Ava Gan­dia, in what fin­ished up as a 4-1 win for Dun­ve­gan.

In the other semi, Glen Ne­vis be­gan with a 2-1 vic­tory over Lag­gan, but Team Black replied

to win game two by the same mar­gin. Bre­anna MacGil­livray and Meaghan McDougald pot­ted goals for the win­ning side, while Jes­sica McLeod had the lone tally the other way.

In game three, Lag­gan put up a goose egg, as Glen Ne­vis’ Alexia Chau­mont scored twice. Michelle Owens MacMil­lan opened the scor­ing late in the first half with a beau­ti­ful header that would turn out to be the game-win­ning marker, as Glen Ne­vis went on to pre­vail 3-0.

Lisa Mac­Don­ald back­stopped the shut-out win.
