Se­nior men’s cham­pi­onship on the line in game 3

The Glengarry News - - Sports in the Glens -

BY SEAN BRAY Sports Ed­i­tor The cham­pi­onship of the Glen­garry Soccer League’s se­nior men’s divi­sion comes down to one game, set for the field at VCI tonight, Aug. 29, when the host Van­kleek Hill side, which was nearly un­beat­able dur­ing the reg­u­lar sea­son, en­ter­tains the de­fend­ing champs from Green­field, at 8:30 p.m.

Green­field, on their home field, took the open­ing game of the fi­nals, on Aug. 22, as a Mike Buhr goal stood for a 1-0 win.

Goal­keeper Ni­co­las Vail­lan­court was kept busy dur­ing the se­cond half, as Van­kleek Hill fought to equal­ize, but de­spite a sig­nif­i­cant ter­ri­to­rial ad­van­tage, they could not.

Two days later, up north, the teams re­con­vened at VCI, where the ta­bles were turned.

Van­kleek Hill got a first-half marker, mo­ments be­fore the break, when Pa­trick Daoust got one past Vail­lan­court.

Much of the se­cond half was dom­i­nated by a Green­field at­tack, which was wind-aided, though de­spite the pres­sure, the Red Shirts were un­able to put one away.

The match went into the books as a 1- 0 win for the hosts, ty­ing the se­ries at a game apiece and set­ting the stage for tonight’s fi­nale.
