Austin Main paced the offence with a trio of touchdowns, while Nathan Sauve added two majors as part of the Gaels' scoring. Coach Jeff Dorn says the defence played as one, forcing three turnovers in the contest.

The week three schedule gets an early start, with a pair of May 31 games in Alexandria (GDHS). There's a mosquito match at 6pm, followed by a peewee performance at 7:15pm.

The Glengarry Gaels took advantage of their mid-week play, scoring a pair of victories, as the tykes improved to 2-0 on the season with a victory Wednesday night, and the bantams kicked off their season with a rainy, shut-out win Thursday.
The tyke Gaels prevailed 30-18, led by Nacky Sharek (3 touchdowns). Elliott Keenan and Ben Jackman had the other Glengarry majors in the May 24 contest over Cornwall #2.
A night later, in wet, muddy conditions, Austin Main had the game's only TD, as the Gaels prevailed 8-0. The team added a third-quarter safety to round out the scoring, in the victory over the Cornwall Wildcats.
League play is scheduled to continue on Sunday, with games in Alexandria and Cornwall.
After two weeks of postponements due to field conditions, the spring youth football league is set to kick off on Sunday, May 21, with three of four Glengarry teams slated to be in action.

The mosquitoes will play at 11:30 a.m., followed by the peewees at 1:30 p.m.
All games take place on the main field, at GDHS in Alexandria.
