Dun­ve­gan de­throned

The Glengarry News - - Sports in the Glens -

BY SEAN BRAY Sports Edi­tor The Glen­garry Soc­cer League has a new women’s cham­pion this year, as Alexandria dis­patched Dun­ve­gan in the three-game ti­tle se­ries.

The Blue Shirts opened with a 2-0 vic­tory on March 22, but five days later, Alexandria, which topped the reg­u­lar-sea­son ta­ble fin­ish­ing three points ahead of Dun­ve­gan, evened the se­ries with a 3-2 shootout win.

Alexandria’s Emily MacMaster scored in the first half, and Alexa De­mers replied for Team Blue late in reg­u­la­tion to tie the af­fair. A 10minute over­time set­tled noth­ing, so it was on to penalty kicks.

In the shootout, Alexandria goal­keeper Vic­to­ria Vil­lalba stoned all but one Dun­ve­gan player, as op­pos­ing net nanny Caro­line DeRe­pentigny was the only Blue Shirt to solve the Red keeper.

Mean­while, Brae­lyn MacMaster and Quinn MacKin­non scored for Alexandria, se­cur­ing the win.

That set the stage for a de­cid­ing third match on March 29.

The con­test was score­less into the sec­ond half, when Dana Vail­lan­court led the charge for Alexandria, scor­ing twice, in­clud­ing the game-win­ner on a header, to pace her side to a 3-2 vic­tory.

Emily MacMaster had the other Red Shirt tally.

De­mers opened the scor­ing for Dun­ve­gan, on a break in alone, be­fore Alexandria tied it.

Michelle DeRe­pentigny scored later, briefly ty­ing the con­test at 2-2.

Dun­ve­gan pressed its at­tack down to the fi­nal whis­tle, con­tin­u­ing to test de­fend­ers and Vil­lalba in net, but was un­able to score again, as Alexandria held to se­cure the tro­phy.
