HT Falcons on to playoffs
BY SEAN BRAY Sports Editor The SDGAA high school football regular- season schedule concluded last week, with the Holy Trinity Falcons clinching second place and a home playoff date.
The Falcons finale was played Oct. 25 at Tagwi, where HT 35-6 to run its record to 4-1, for second place.
Nathan Van Putten paced the Falcons offence, scoring a touchdown in each of the first two quarters. Other majors were recorded by Zack Coleman, Jacob Morin, and Nick Young. Joe
diStefano took care of the kicking duties for this game, booting four point-after converts and a rouge.
Tagwi’s points came late, a drive capped off by a 20-yard touchdown run from Schuyler Schellenberg.
The Warriors finish the season at 0-5 and will not participate in playoff action.
The Falcons’ semifinal opponent will be third-ranked la Citadelle (3-2). The teams are set to do battle on Friday, Nov. 2, at 1 p.m., at Holy Trinity.
The other league semi will go Thursday, starting at 11 a.m., when St. Joseph’s (5-0) will host CCVS (1-4).
The Raiders get the last playoff spot despite the fact that the Glengarry Gaels have a better record (2-3), because a league vote precludes the Gaels from participation since the team is a combined effort of GDHS and VCI.
Gaels top Raiders
In what was billed as a meaningless game, but really wasn’t, the Gaels beat the Raiders 27-12, in Cornwall, on a chilly Thursday morning last week.
CCVS went with a short bench for this game, which was originally scheduled for earlier in the season.
The match was an opportunity for the Gaels to end the season on a positive note, while the Raiders had the chance to tuneup for the playoffs.
Glengarry’s Logan Keurentjes opened the scoring with an early touchdown, on a one- yard plunge, but the Raiders soon tied. Neither team was able to convert, though.
Later in the half, Gaels quarterback Aaron Keurentjes scampered to the house. The snap on the convert was muffed, but L. Keurentjes was able to collect the ball to carry it into the end zone for two points, making it a 14-6 game.
Derek Leclerc had a third-quarter touchdown, as the Gaels extended their lead, and Tyler Golarz added another, when he caught an end zone pass. L. Keurentjes successfully kicked the convert the latter, to put Glengarry in front 27-6.
The Raiders got one back early in the fourth quarter, on a 41-yard scramble to the house, but that would be it, as the Glengarry defence held the rest of the way.
