Glen­garry’s U16 Hearts girls soc­cer team, one of eight squads that the county has com­pet­ing this summer in the East Re­gion Soc­cer League, re­mained un­beaten on the sea­son, fol­low­ing a 2- 0 vic­tory over the West Car­leton Talons, on June 1, in Alexan­dria.

Played at Is­land Park, on Gerry Simp­son Field, the match saw the home side dom­i­nate ter­ri­to­ri­ally for long stretches.

The Hearts scored early on, some six min­utes in, and again at the 75-minute mark when a firm shot from 25 yards out eluded the reach of the West Car­leton goal­keeper.

Glen­garry’s marks women were Miriam Boisv­enue, with al­ready her fourth of the sea­son, and Camilla Gau­thier, with her first.

Alexa Sabourin was the Hearts’ goal­keeper of record, earn­ing her first shutout.

The vic­tory was the team’s sec­ond in as many tries, as the ladies pre­vi­ously topped Ot­tawa TFC Red, 4-1.

Boisv­enue de­liv­ered a hat-trick in that match, with the other tally from Ella Bowles.

Next home ac­tion for the girls is slated for June 25, at Is­land Park, where the Hearts will host the Ot­tawa In­ter­na­tion­als, start­ing at 6:30 p.m.
