Gaels tri­umph

The Glengarry News - - The Opinion Page -

For the third time in as many years, the curlers from Glen­garry Dis­trict High School are cham­pi­ons of The Glen­garry News High School Curl­ing Chal­lenge.

The 2018 edi­tion, which was held Dec. 7 at the Lan­caster Curl­ing Club, marked the 14th year of the event, that sees mixed teams from the county’s four high schools com­pete in a friendly day-long bon­spiel.

Af­ter four draws, the Gaels were per­fect at 4-0, with only Char-Lan still able to catch them.

As luck would have it, their ‘A’ teams met in the fifth draw, play­ing to a tie, leav­ing it to the ‘B’ squads from each school to de­cide mat­ters in the sixth and last draw.

The Cru­saders needed a strong win to wres­tle the hard­ware away from the Gaels, but it wasn’t to be, as Glen­garry pre­vailed 4-1, and over­all on the day, on points, 100 to 67.
