The Glengarry News - - Sports In The Glens -

BY SEAN BRAY Sports Ed­i­tor Glen­garry Dis­trict High School’s se­nior boys soc­cer team kicked off its 2018 SDGAA sea­son in fine form, sport­ing a 4-0 record as the Gaels get set to host Tagwi to­day, May 9.

On Mon­day, in Wil­liamstown, the boys, play­ing their south­ern ri­vals, Char-Lan, bagged a pair of early goals, be­fore set­tling in for a 2- 0 vic­tory over the Cru­saders.

Aaron Keuren­t­jes ac­counted for both Glen­garry mark­ers.

Char-Lan’s best chance of crack­ing the goose egg came a few min­utes into the sec­ond half, when the boys cap­i­tal­ized on a re­bound, boot­ing it into the net. How­ever, the play was ruled off­side, nul­li­fy­ing the ap­par­ent goal.

From there, the Gaels’ de­fence stiff­ened, largely keep­ing the Cru­saders at bay.

Ear­lier in the day, the Gaels spanked Holy Trin­ity 5-0, on the strength of goals from Liam Fil­ion, Matthew Houlzet, Bai­ley Pid­geon, Liam MacDon­ald, and Bren­nan Nadeau.

David MacMaster back­stopped both shut-out vic­to­ries.

The Gaels opened their sea­son on May 4, with a 9-0 thrash­ing of CCVS and a 4-1 win over l’Her­itage.

To­day, in Alexandria, the GD boys are booked to take on Tagwi at 10:45 a.m. and St. Lawrence at 3:45 p.m.

The loss on Mon­day for CharLan’s se­nior boys was their first of the sea­son, drop­ping the Cru­saders’ record to 3-1.

The boys split the day, by blank­ing Holy Trin­ity 3- 0. Trevor Spence led the at­tack with a pair of goals, while Colin MacDon­ald scored one.

Last Fri­day, Char-Lan scored a pair of 3-0 wins, get­ting past North Dundas and l’Her­itage.

Holy Trin­ity is also sched­uled to host soc­cer to­day (May 9), with the boys sport­ing a record of 1-2-1. Last Fri­day, the Fal­cons beat Se­away 4-2 and tied North Dundas 1-1.

Se­nior girls

Mon­day’s se­nior girls play in Wil­liamstown left this sports writer some­what con­fused, as Char-Lan beat Glen­garry, which got past Holy Trin­ity, which top­pled Char-Lan.

The Cru­saders win over the Gaels was a 1-0 de­ci­sion, on a Gil­lian Cor­bet tally. The re­sult im­proved Char-Lan’s record to 1-1 on the sea­son, af­ter a 4-1 loss ear­lier in the day to the Fal­cons.

Char-Lan’s Fiona MacDon­ald had the lone marker for her side, while Kelly Bris­sary notched a hat trick for the Fal­cons. Emma Van der Burg also struck for HT.

With a 4-0 win last Fri­day, Holy Trin­ity’s girls now have a 2-1 record.

The Fal­cons’ lone blem­ish so far came against the Gaels, a 4-1 re­sult on Mon­day. Shayla MacNaughto­n paced the Glen­garry at­tack with a pair of goals, the oth­ers com­ing from Bri­anna Van Loon and Jayme McPher­son. Re­ply­ing for HT was Dara Lafram­boise.
