Tier 2 women’s soccer ti­tle on the line

The Glengarry News - - Sports In The Glens - Sean Bray

For the first time, there are play­offs for the tier 2 women’s di­vi­sion of the Glen­garry Soccer League, with the cham­pion to be crowned tonight, in Van­kleek Hill.

Tops through the course of the reg­u­lar sea­son, the host side fin­ished the cam­paign with 28 points, four bet­ter than Lag­gan, the other team qual­i­fy­ing to bat­tle for the play­off ti­tle.

Last week, in one-game knock­out semi­fi­nals, Lag­gan edged third-ranked Char-Lan, 3-2.

Michelle Fon­taine led the charge for the win­ning side, with a pair of goals, while Josee Lav­igueur added one.

Char-Lan’s tal­lies were notched by Shonna Atch­e­son and Chris­tine Sandi­lands.

Van­kleek won its semi more hand­ily, blank­ing Dun­ve­gan 3-0, on goals from Kyla Bur­wash, Cyn­thia Wever, and Keri Al­bright.

The one-game fi­nal, tonight, will be played

un­der the lights on the pitch at VCI, begin­ning at 8:30 p.m.

In past years, the tier 2 women’s di­vi­sion of the GSL was one where stand­ings were not kept and games were played for fun.

A vote at last fall’s an­nual gen­eral meet­ing changed that, in­sti­tut­ing com­pet­i­tive play for the 2018 sea­son, fol­low­ing what the tier 2 men have had in place for many years.
