Bar Flies take over first

The Glengarry News - - Sports In The Glens - There are three weeks of reg­u­lar-sea­son play re­main­ing, sched­uled for Feb. 21, Feb. 28, and March 7. – Sean Bray

What could have been an evenly-matched bat­tle for sole pos­ses­sion of first place in the Glen­garry Soc­cer League’s se­nior men’s di­vi­sion in­stead turned out to be a bit of a one-sided af­fair, as the Bar Flies romped to a 6-1 vic­tory over McCrim­mon.

That’s not to say the White Shirts didn’t have their chances to score, de­spite play­ing the en­tire night short-handed, with just three play­ers, aside from their goal­keeper.

Bar Flies goalie Tyler Hay had to make a num­ber of stel­lar stops. The only one that got past him came early, off the foot of Shawn Vink.

Mean­while, the Bar Flies used the open field to move the ball, work on their pass­ing, and set up plays, fre­quently test­ing McCrim­mon keeper Ni­cholas Wenger.

The of­fence was dis­trib­uted too, with four play­ers scor­ing. Cameron Poirier and Lochlan MacDon­ald each had two goals, while Lo­gan Keuren­t­jes and Kenny MacMil­lan counted sin­gles.

With the vic­tory, the Bar Flies moved ahead of McCrim­mon by three points, 28 to 25.

In the other Feb. 14 match, Alexan­dria FC edged Pine Grove 5-4, on goals from Yale Chad­sey (2), Spencer Lordz (2), and Sul­li­van Van Loon. Colin Web­ster had all four mark­ers for Pine Grove.

Alexan­dria’s win brings them up to 25 points, tied with McCrim­mon for sec­ond place.
