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.

Tagwi Warriors set to finally play football Tuesday vs. St. Joseph’s

Technically four weeks into the SDGAA high school football season, the Tagwi Warriors appear poised to finally hit the gridiron for their first action, set to travel to Cornwall on Tuesday, October 8, to play the St. Joseph’s Panthers (2-0), starting at 1 p.m.

This game had originally been slated for week one but was postponed as the Warriors didn’t have enough players. Tagwi’s week two game was scrubbed in advance due to weather.

Last week, the team, along with other UCDSB squads, was idled when the English public school board ordered all extra-curricular activities cancelled, citing work-to-rule job action by educational support workers.

The Warriors weren’t able to practise last week either. Meanwhile, their opposition for the October 8 game, St. Joseph’s, played in the Charity Bowl against Catholic rival Holy Trinity (2-1), winning 5-0. The points were the first that the Falcons had surrendered in three contests to date. The Panthers still have yet to allow opposition scoring.

Extra-curricular activities were not stopped at schools in other boards; thus, football programs at St. Joseph’s, Holy Trinity, and La Citadelle continued to hold regular practices last week and play scheduled games, while the CCVS, Glengarry, and Tagwi squads were shut down by the UCDSB mandate.

Games postponed last week: Tagwi versus La Citadelle, CCVS versus Glengarry.

The Glengarry Gaels are scheduled to resume practices today, after a week off. According to head coach Brian Dunham, they are not slated to play any games this week.
