Gaels boys 10-0, host play­offs

The Glengarry News - - Sports In The Glens - SD&G play­offs will be held to­day, May 23, in Alexan­dria. See sep­a­rate ar­ti­cle for sched­ule.

BY SEAN BRAY Sports Ed­i­tor What a sea­son it has al­ready been for the se­nior boys soc­cer team at Glen­garry Dis­trict High School, but as the say­ing goes, the real work be­gins now, with play­off ac­tion.

The Gaels com­pleted a per­fect reg­u­lar- sea­son cam­paign last week, chalk­ing up two more shutout vic­to­ries on May 16, to fin­ish with a 10-0 record.

The lone goal al­lowed dur­ing the sea­son came off a penalty kick. In all, Glen­garry outscored op­po­nents 46 to 1.

Amongst other note­wor­thy achieve­ments, the Gaels beat St. Joseph’s, the top ‘AA’ team in reg­u­lar-sea­son play, hand­ing the Pan­thers their only loss.

That win over SJ came on their home field last Wed­nes­day, when Liam Mac­Don­ald’s tally stood as all the Gaels would need, as the boys notched a 1-0 vic­tory over the Corn­wall pow­er­house.

The other May 16 vic­tory went into the books as a 9-0 thrash­ing of Se­away. Bai­ley Pid­geon had a hat trick, and Hamish Ma­cLeod scored twice, with sin­gles counted by Bren­nan Nadeau, Cameron Mac­Don­ald, Cameron Poirier, and Liam Fil­ion.

Glen­garry head coach Glen Camp­bell, re­flect­ing on what’s been ac­com­plished so far this spring, says, “I'm re­ally happy with the way the boys played. The play­offs are a whole new sea­son, and we are tak­ing noth­ing for granted, as there are so many good teams in our divi­sion.”

Char-Lan takes sec­ond

The Cru­saders capped off their spring reg­u­lar-sea­son ac­tion with a 1-0 vic­tory over la Ci­tadelle, with Lan­don Fraser the goal scorer.

Char-Lan’s final record is 8-2, with losses to the Gaels and St. Joseph’s. The Cru­saders scored 35 goals this sea­son, to five against.

Tagwi third

In the third seed are the Warriors, who last Wed­nes­day con­cluded the sched­ule with a pair of matches on their home pitch.

Up first was a 3-1 loss to Holy Trin­ity. James Paul had the Tagwi goal, while scor­ing for the Fal­cons were Cole Bes­ner, Zach Mo­hammed, and Ben­net Mes­man.

Later, the boys edged la Ci­tadelle 2-1, rid­ing a pair of mark­ers from Tan­ner Brug­mans. Tagwi ends up 6-4. Les Pa­tri­otes get the fourth and final play­off spot, at 5-5.
