Hearts girls hold first

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

The Hearts U13 girls soccer team holds top spot in the ERSL standings, with a record of 10 wins, 2 ties, and just 1 loss, as the sea­son heads into the home stretch.

The Glen­gar­ri­ans have three matches re­main­ing, in­clud­ing a road con­test on Aug. 30 against West Ot­tawa. That will be fol­lowed by two home games, at Is­land Park in Alexan­dria, which AS Gatineau will visit on Sept. 3, and the Nepean Hot­spurs Evo­lu­tion on Sept. 15.

The Hearts’ last reg­u­lar-sea­son ac­tion, on Aug. 17, saw the girls play to a nil-nil draw with West Ot­tawa, in what coach Glen Camp­bell deemed “not our best ef­fort.”

The team en­tered the con­test rid­ing a six-game win­ning streak.

Glen­garry’s lead­ing scor­ers to date are Mya Camp­bell (9) and Keira MacCormick (8).

The Hearts re­main in the driver’s seat on the road to tak­ing the divi­sion cham­pi­onship, though both Gatineau and Ot­tawa Glouces­ter are just be­hind in the standings. The teams also have games in hand on the Glen­garry girls.

In the par­al­lel ER Cup com­pe­ti­tion, the Hearts won their opener on July 15, with a 6-1 vic­tory over Nepean, but last week were bounced by AS Gatineau, 5-1 in their round-two match.
