GDHS senior boys ride perfect season to SD&G title

The Glengarry Gaels senior boys volleyball team’s unbeaten SD&G season was capped off last week when they claimed the playoff championship on their home court in a two-set sweep of the Tagwi Warriors

Hosting the November 6 ‘A’ championship tournament, the GDHS boys were expected to win, but the Warriors, who entered as the fifth seed, gave the Gaels a stiff test in the title match, opening the first set to lead by as many as 5 points thanks in large part to the power serve of Giovanni Cecchinato. Glengarry battled, though, and with an Ethan Attridge smash at the net, the set was tied 9-9. That seemed to turn the tied.

The Gaels managed to stretch the lead in the latter stages of the set, going on to win the set 25-19 on a Tagwi mishit.

The second set again began with the Warriors taking an early lead, albeit smaller, just 2 points. Glengarry responded, tying or leading by a point or two as the set progressed.

With Gael Hamish MacLeod at the service line, the Gaels rang off back-to-back points to move in front 20-16. However, a timely timeout saw momentum swing in Tagwi’s favour, as the Warriors soon drew even at 21-21.

With the score 24-23 and Crew Rickerd serving up match point, Cecchinato struck a return that landed in to score a point for Tagwi and extend play. Two points later, at 25-24, Liam Filion was at the service line for match point, and this time the Gaels capitalized to win, 26-24, as a Tagwi player committed a line violation.

It was a long day of play for the Warriors, as they had to upset two opponents just to have the opportunity to play the Gaels. First, they took down fourth-ranked Holy Trinity (21-25, 25-14, 15-8) in one of the quarter-finals. Then, in a semifinal, Tagwi toppled second-seeded Char-Lan (26-24, 25-19).

GDHS’ other action was a semifinal victory over La Citadelle, in straight sets (25-23, 25-17).

Next stop for the Glengarry Gaels will be EOSSAA, as the boys will represent SD&G as our champions. The tournament is scheduled for November 14 in Renfrew, to be hosted by St. Joseph’s CHS.

Mackenzie Shoniker paced the HT offence, scoring 19 points, while Annika Setterington contributed 15 points.

The thriller saw Tagwi lead after the first, second, and third quarters, but in the end, the Warriors succumbed to the Saints 35-31. Mackenna Brownlee had 14 points to lead the Warriors.

The other semi saw Holy Trinity dispatch North Dundas 51-16, led by Shoniker’s 15 points.

Tagwi pulls plug on 2019 football team

Four weeks into the high school football season, with the Warriors having not played any games to date, Tagwi Secondary School has announced that the squad is shutting down, citing an insufficient number of participating student-athletes in order to “safely compete.”

The Warriors had been scheduled to kick off their 2019 season on September 20 at St. Joseph’s in Cornwall, but that game was called off at the last minute as Tagwi worked to bolster its roster. Game two, set for September 26, was postponed due to weather, and the team’s third match was bounced due to the UCDSB cancellation of all extra-curricullar activities last week.

Tagwi was slated to play the rescheduled game versus the Panthers on October 8, but that was called off, and then the school delivered the news that the football team would be shutting down.

League convenor Mitch Zappitelli shared the news via e-mail with other teams in the league: “Unfortunately, Tagwi has dropped out of the league. I will have to look at the schedule tonight and talk to the refs.”

With the loss of Tagwi from the, just one game on the original schedule has not been played. That’s the October 4 contest that was to feature Glengarry and CCVS. The Gaels’ next game was slated to be October 17 versus the Warriors, which obviously won’t be happening. Their game at the Raiders will need to be slotted in sometime. As well, Glengarry is booked to host, at VCI, the St. Joseph’s Panthers on October 24, at noon.
