Holy Trinity raised $1,250 for Baldwin House, and along with Catholic partner St. Joseph's, recently donated $2,500 to the facility that assists "women and their children in the transition from violent and abusive circumstances to a safe and secure environment and a renewed family by providing safe shelter and services, and encouraging them to realize their full human potential."
The funds were collected from the recent Sisters' Cup hockey game, played Dec. 10 in Cornwall.
The Falcons express thanks to all those in the community who supported the event and helped us raise funds and/or food donations.
Last week in Chesterville, the puck dropped on the 2018-19 season of boys high school hockey. We have the story in the Dec. 12 issue of The Glengarry News. A photo gallery of images from the game between Tagwi and Holy Trinity can be viewed online here.
The inaugural Sisters’ Cup girls hockey game featuring the Holy Trinity Falcons versus the St. Joseph’s Panthers will take place Monday, December 10, at Cornwall's multi-sport complex. Doors will open at 4 p.m., with the action set to begin at 4:15 p.m.
All proceeds will go to Baldwin House. Goodwill donations will be accepted at the door
Location: Benson Centre on Pad #1, 800 7th. Street West, Cornwall, Ontario K6J 0A3.
The match between Catholic rivals is intended as a celebration of girls sports, and the result will count towards SDGAA league standings.
Holy Trinity moves on, while Tagwi is done, as the regular season of high school football wrapped up last week. The Warriors finish bottom of the table at 0-5, while the Falcons end up second at 4-1. We have the full story in the Oct. 31 edition of The Glengarry News, including the playoff schedule.
The girls hockey team from Tagwi Secondary School will miss out on playoff action by the slimmest of margins.
Needing a win today in Long Sault to advance, the Warriors dropped a pair of contests to complete regular-season play tied for fourth place with La Citadelle, at 7 points.
So a tiebreaker was needed to determine which team would advance. Head-to-head they played once, tying 4-4. And both teams had 3 wins on the season.
The third tiebreaker step using the formula [GF/(GF+GA)] for all season games was then used.
- Tagwi's results: 4-4, 2-3, 2-1, 1-4, 2-1, 5-1, 1-2, 0-4 [17/(17+20)]=.46
- La Citadelle Scores: 4-4, 0-3, 5-0, 4-3, 1-2, 3-2, 3-4, 1-4 [21/(21+22)]=.48
La Citadelle wins the tiebreaker to claim the fourth seed for the playoffs. Tagwi officially finishes fifth, and their season is over.
St. Joseph's takes first place, followed by Holy Trinity and North Dundas to round out the post-season seeds.
The playoff tournament will take place Feb. 28 in Long Sault. We will have more details in next week's edition of The Glengarry News.
