TIGHT QUAR­TERS:

The Glengarry News - - Front Page - BY SEAN BRAY Sports Edi­tor Cana­dian As­so­ci­a­tion of Jour­nal­ists ac­cred­ited –––––

La Ci­tadelle’s Carolyne Laflèche runs shoul­der-to-shoul­der with Char-Lan ju­nior girls soc­cer player Ko­ral Cooke, in SD&G high school ‘A’ divi­sion semi­fi­nal ac­tion, hosted May 22 by Les Pa­tri­otes, in Corn­wall. The match marked the end of the sea­son for the Cru­saders, who bowed out 3-1, while the Pats went on to lose in the cham­pi­onship game, to Tagwi.

A ter­rific soc­cer sea­son for Tagwi’s ju­nior girls team con­tin­ued last week, when the War­riors claimed the SD&G ‘A’ ti­tle over la Ci­tadelle, in over­time.

Tagwi opened the scor­ing when Nevynn Wit­teveen cap­i­tal­ized off a fast break. The marker held into the sec­ond half, when la Ci­tadelle’s Is­abelle Longchamps found the equal­izer.

The first half of sud­den-death over­time failed to set­tle the match, so it was on to a sec­ond ex­tra ses­sion, where, with mo­ments re­main­ing, Tagwi’s Mara Ault scored the game-win­ner.

The War­riors had a reg­u­larsea­son record of 5 wins, 1 loss, and 2 ties, for tops amongst ‘A’ divi­sion squads.

The SD&G cham­pi­onship sees Tagwi seeded first, head­ing into today’s (May 29) EOSSAA tour­na­ment, in Kemptville. La Ci­tadelle also earned a berth and is ranked sixth, while VCI, the Prescott-Rus­sell cham­pion, is third.

Look for re­sults in The News next week.
