As the proverbial phrase goes, it’s do-or-die tonight, when the Alexandria and Glen Sandfield senior men’s soccer teams will collide to decide which side moves on to the Glengarry Soccer League championship series, to face Alexandria FC.
On Wednesday night, the squads battled at Island Park, where Alexandria prevailed 3-0, on the strength of goals from Cameron Poirier, Liam MacDonald, and and an unidentified player. The win knotted the best-of-three series at a game apiece, as Glen Sandfield prevailed in the opener, 1-0 in overtime.
The third and deciding match is booked for the Lochiel pitch tonight, August 16, starting at 8:30 p.m.
The other semifinal series ended on Wednesday evening, when Alexandria FC finished off Dunvegan, 3-2, completing the two-game sweep.
The finals, also a best-of-three, are booked to kick off August 23.
