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.
