HT Fal­cons on to play­offs

The Glengarry News - - Sports In The Glens -

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.
