Glen­garry tyke Gaels drop close one

The Glengarry News - - Sports in the Glens -

BY SEAN BRAY Sports Edi­tor The tyke Gaels were so close in their grid­iron game last Wed­nes­day, in Alexan­dria, fall­ing just short in a 60-59 loss to the Corn­wall #1 Wild­cats.

The young foot­ballers had a chance for vic­tory on the last play of the game, go­ing for a two-point con­vert (which is a pass and re­cep­tion and this level). The play­ers con­nected, but the re­ceiver was stopped shy of the goal line, as the ’Cats held.

It was the third such stop of the con­test, in fact, while both teams ran up and down the field, nearly at will.

Con­nor Hamelin ac­counted for seven touch­downs and one PAT (a sin­gle off a run at this level).

Maxime Trem­blay took two to the house, and Damien Martin recorded a pair of two-point con­verts.

On June 10, the squad closed out regu- lar-sea­son play with a 54-49 win, to fin­ish with a 3-3 record for third place in league stand­ings. Corn­wall #2 is first, fol­lowed by Corn­wall #1, with Corn­wall #3 in last.

Play­off semi­fi­nals will go on Sun­day, June 17 in Corn­wall, with start times to be con­firmed.

In other re­sults from last week’s play for county teams, the mos­quito Gaels lost 3013, while the ban­tams pre­vailed 28-14.

Glen­garry’s ban­tams have se­cured top spot in their three-team di­vi­sion, get­ting a bye for the June 24 cham­pi­onship match, which will be played in Alexan­dria.

The mos­quito and pee­wee Gaels are sched­uled for semi­fi­nal ac­tion in Corn­wall, on June 17.

Sun­day’s play­off sched­ule will be posted to our web­site at sportsinthe­glens.com

The Glen­garry Gaels will once again par­tic­i­pate in games at the Maxville Fair, on June 22, start­ing at 6 p.m.

This event is a fundraiser for the food bank, run as part of Puro­la­tor’s na­tional Tackle Hunger pro­gram. At­ten­dees are asked to bring a cash or non-per­ish­able food do­na­tion.
