UPDATED post here.

We have details of last Friday's win at the Palace, in the Oct. 11 issue of The Glengarry News. A photo gallery can be viewed online here.

After getting a bye in the first high school girls hockey tournament of the season last week, the Char-Lan Crusaders took it to their opponents in action today in Alexandria, scoring a pair of decisive wins. 

Also playing for the first time this season were the GDHS Gaels, who suffered two defeats. Tagwi dropped both its matches today, while Holy Trinity won one and tied its other.

This week's edition of The Glengarry News includes a round-up of the opened tournament, which was held last week in Chesterville. We will have full details from today's event in our first edition of 2017, setting the stage for the resumption of the high school sports season in January.
