Les Rapi­des win league

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

The se­nior girls soc­cer team from École sec­ondaire catholique le Re­lais claimed the Prescott-Rus­sell league cham­pi­onship last week, with a 2-0 vic­tory over ESC Em­brun.

Myr­iam Boisv­enue opened the scor­ing 22 min­utes into the match, boot­ing a 20-yarder from out­side the penalty box.

Les Rapi­des main­tained ter­ri­to­rial ad­van­tage for much of the game, mov­ing the ball ef­fec­tively around the field to pre­vent the op­po­nent from threat­en­ing to any sig­nif­i­cant ex­tent.

On a sec­ond-half free kick, Sara Car­rière made it 2-0, bend­ing a well-placed shot over the Cy­clones goal­keeper.

Le Re­lais reached the ti­tle tilt, fol­low­ing a 1-0 semi­fi­nal vic­tory over St. Thomas Aquinas. Olivia Dé­coeur and Car­rière com­bined for the goal.

Les Rapi­des were un­beaten in league play over the course of the reg­u­lar sea­son.

The girls will have to wait un­til spring to see ac­tion again, at EOSSAA, with other school asso- cia­tions sched­uled for their league play be­gin­ning in late April.
