Gaels win pre-season indoor tourney
Glengarry District High School’s senior boys soccer team already looks in top form, heading into the SDGAA regular season.
Last week, the Gaels hosted a warm-up tournament at the dome in Alexandria, where the boys in red had little trouble with their opponents, going 3-0 on the day.
In the finale, versus Holy Trinity, Glengarry’s offence was a force, pounding the Falcons 9-1.
Cameron Poirier and Liam MacDonald each scored twice, while teammates notching singles were Crew Rickerd, Ethan Attridge, Kenny MacMillan, Bailey Pidgeon, and Craig Van Loon.
The lone marker from HT, which came early in the second half, was scored by Jacob Morin.
Logan Keurentjes, the Gaels goalkeeper, was solid in net.
Earlier Glengarry results saw the boys beat Tagwi 6-2 and drop St. Joseph’s 4-1.
The Warriors and Falcons tied their match 5-5, while the Panthers beat Tagwi 7-3 and Holy Trinity 8-1.
Char-Lan’s senior roster is taking form under the guidance of coach Sean O’Farrell.
Student-athletes currently working out with the Crusaders include Cody Chambre, Nathan Crump, Jason Ouimet, Jack Cayer, Nicholas Oeggerli, Brendan Watson, Ethan MacDonald, Andrew Fakotakis, Chris Ouimet, Aidan Leroux, Jake Vanderburg, Lachlan McDonell, Duncan McRae, Jeremy Cornish, Dylan Spence, Josh Vandrish, Harrison Fraser, Nat Faubert, and Xandre Seguin.
Brayden Dupuis will be the team’s goalkeeper.
League play begins later this month, Mother Nature permitting.
