Men’s soc­cer ti­tle up for grabs

The Glengarry News - - Sports in the Glens - Sean Bray

Green­field will face Van­kleek Hill in the GSL se­nior men’s fi­nals, sched­uled to kick off on Aug. 22, with the sec­ond match two days later. Should a third game be needed, Aug. 29 is re­served.

Lo­ca­tions of con­tests have yet to be con­firmed, how­ever, by the Glen­garry Soc­cer League. Up­dates will be posted to our web­site sportsinth­e­

Green­field earned its berth in the fi­nals by dis­patch­ing McCrim­mon last Sun­day evening, 4-3 in ex­tra time. Chris Wert booted the se­ries-win­ner in the 115th minute, past goal­keeper Liam MacNaughto­n, who stretched out in vain.

From a scor­ing per­spec­tive, the game was an odd one, with the teams com­bin­ing for six goals in the first half and none in the sec­ond.

McCrim­mon marks­men were Nat MacMil­lan, Alex Mac­Mas­ter, and Derek MacSweyn, while Green­field tally- masters were Steve McBain, Blake McDonell, and Bren­den San­ders.

Mean­while, Team Grey sent Dun­ve­gan pack­ing in the other semi­fi­nal cap­per, 5-1. Justin Racine scored for Blue. Chris Lowe (3), Chase Al­bright, and Pa­trick Labré had the Van­kleek Hill mark­ers.
