BY SEAN BRAY Sports Ed­i­tor After kick­ing off the ab­bre­vi­ated SDGAA high school soccer sea­son on May 6 with a hard-found 1-0 vic­tory over Se­away, Tagwi’s se­nior boys strug­gled two days later on their home pitch, drop­ping a pair of matches.

First up, the War­riors were blanked 4-0 by St. Joseph’s.

Later, they tangled with l’Her­itage, play­ing to a 6-2 loss.

The gusty winds favoured the Drag­ons in the first half, with the vis­i­tors tak­ing ad­van­tage.

Early scram­bly play led to two quick mark­ers for the Green Shirts, as l’Her­itage strove to boot the ball the length of the field, over de­fend­ers, to set up break­aways.

Dur­ing a brief respite from the wind, Tagwi cut their deficit with a James Paul goal.

The teams set­tled into a kickand-run style for much of the rest of the match.

Bren­nan MacKil­li­can rounded out the scor­ing late, for Tagwi.

Do­minic Pa­que­tte had four goals for the Drag­ons, with the oth­ers notched by Caleb Génier and Ni­cholas Cléroux.

In other se­nior boys ac­tion last week, Char-Lan tied Tagwi 1-1. Bray­den Dupuis notched the Cru­saders goal, while didn’t re­ceive in­for­ma­tion on the War­riors goal scorer.

Char-Lan was blanked 1-0 by la Ci­tadelle, on a penalty kick.

As coach Sean O’Far­rell puts it, the boys played well, but lacked fin­ish.

GDHS’ se­nior boys pounded St. Lawrence 8-0 (names of goal scor­ers not avail­able), on May 7, and shut out la Ci­tadelle 2-0, on goals from Liam Fil­ion and Dove Rick­erd. Lo­gan Keuren­t­jes was in net for both shut-out wins.

The Gaels also hosed l’Her­itage 4-0, with Hamish Ma­cLeod scor­ing twice, while Bai­ley Pid­geon and Kenny MacMil­lan had sin­gles.

Against North Dun­das, it was much tighter, but nonethe­less, the Gaels pre­vailed, win­ning 1-0, on Craig Van Loon’s goal.
