Mos­quito Gaels claim first spring foot­ball win

The Glengarry News - - Sports in the Glens - The day didn’t go quite as well for

BY SEAN BRAY Sports Ed­i­tor Glen­garry’s mos­quito Gaels foot­ball team shook the prover­bial mon­key off its back last Sun­day, scor­ing win num­ber one of the sea­son, with a 40-18 ef­fort over the Corn­wall #2 Wild­cats.

The vis­i­tors got on the score­board early, af­ter which Glen­garry’s de­fence took con­trol, and the of­fence kicked into gear too.

Ben Jack­man, quar­ter­back, was an of­fen­sive force car­ry­ing the ball, rack­ing up big yardage, as he notched four touch­downs and a pair of one-point con­verts (runs at this level).

Nacky Beauséjour-Shareck was a beast on de­fence and of­fence, the lat­ter of which saw him record a trio of ma­jors and a con­ver­sion.

With the win, the Gaels im­prove to 1-4 on the sea­son.

Coach Ian Par­ent praised his play­ers fol­low­ing the tri­umph, say­ing in a Face­book post, “You fol­lowed the play calls on both D and O, and you gave it your all.”

He added that he was de­cid­edly proud of their “mon­ster at­ti­tude.”

Other re­sults from last week

Glen­garry’s other two teams see­ing ac­tion.

The tykes dropped a 36-24 de­ci­sion, with Con­nor Hamelin ac­count­ing for all of the Gaels scor­ing.

The pee­wees lost 72-12. Cameron Belisle had both Glen­garry TDs.

On May 30, the pee­wees played in Corn­wall, fall­ing 18-6, as Mikael Bi­gras scored for Glen­garry off a pick six.

Also in Corn­wall, the mos­qui­tos were hum­bled 62-6, with Jack­man get­ting the lone Gaels score.

In Alexan­dria on May 30, the ban­tam Gaels pre­vailed 34-0.

Coach Brian Dun­ham notes the suc­cess was in part the re­sult of Glen­garry tak­ing advantage of a cou­ple of Corn­wall mis­cues., adding that heat was also a fac­tor, as play­ers on both sides were gassed by the sec­ond half.

Nathan Sauve had four touch­downs in the first half. Logan Keuren­t­jes also had a ma­jor, and Tris­tan Par­ent caught a two­point con­vert.

Tonight, June 6, the Gaels tyke and pee­wee teams will be in ac­tion on the grid­iron at GDHS, start­ing at 6 p.m.

On Sun­day in Alexan­dria, the tykes and ban­tams will play, while the mos­qui­tos will be in Corn­wall
