High school football wraps up today with Gaels, Falcons winners

sean Oct 25, 2018 - 4:09pm

Regular-season action in the SDGAA high school varsity football league concluded today, when the Glengarry Gaels dispatched the CCVS Raiders, and the Holy Trinity Falcons prevailed over the Tagwi Warriors.

Final standings: St. Joseph's 5-0, Holy Trinity 4-1, la Citadelle 3-2, Glengarry 2-3, CCVS 1-4, Tagwi 0-5.

Playoff semifinals next week will feature the Panthers and Raiders on Thursday, with the Falcons and Patriotes playing on Friday.

Despite finishing in fourth place, the Gaels are barred from post-season play due to a league decision imposed because Glengarry's team is a combined effort of GDHS and VCI.

We will have all the details in The Glengarry News next week.

Tyke Wildcats prevail in NCAFA playoff opener

sean Oct 23, 2018 - 1:05pm

The Cornwall tyke 1 Wildcats earned a 48-6 victory over the Bell Warriors, on a chilly Sunday morning at Joe St Denis Field. As occasional snow flurries fell during the Oct. 21 gridiron grudge match, the Wildcats dominated on both sides of the ball.

Glengarrian Connor Hamelin had 9 rushes for 187 yards, scoring 4 touchdowns. On defence, he had 5 solo tackles and 7 assisted tackles. Elliot Keenan recorded 6 rushes for 40 yards, 3 solo tackles, and 7 assisted tackles, while Andrew Wiltshire had one tackle.

The other Cornwall scoring came from Caleb Denney (1 TD) and Bryce Camplin (3 two-point convert kicks).

Action photos from the game can be seen in our online gallery here.

With the win, the tyke 1 team advances to the NCAFA 'A' semifinal round, scheduled to play against Cornwall's other squad, tyke 2 (which won on the road last weekend in quarter-final action, 48-20 over Kanata), on Sunday, Oct. 28, starting at 10 a.m.

In other results last weekend, the mosquito Wildcats got past the Orleans Bengals 26-6. As a result, Cornwall moves on to play the Nepean Eagles on the road, Saturday, Oct. 27.

The peewee Wildcats were the lone squad to lose last weekend, dropping a 32-27 contest to Kanata. Cornwall's peewees will move into the 'B' playoff round, hosting the West Carleton Wolverines at noon, on Sunday.
