sean Jul 27, 2018 - 3:35pm

The Dunvegan senior women's soccer team is the GSL regular-season champion for 2018. The Blue Shirts finished off their campaign last night on home turf, with a convincing 6-0 win over Glen Sandfield, the team they will meet in league semifinals. A photo gallery is available here.

The top four teams will compete in playoff action, while Vankleek Hill has seen its season come to an end.

Semifinals: Dunvegan 1st vs. Glen Sandfield 4th

This series opens Tuesday, July 31 in Dunvegan and promises to be an uphill battle for Team Green, which won just twice all season, while the Blues lost just once. Game start time is set for 8:30 p.m. The second match, on Aug. 7, will take place on the pitch at Lochiel.

Semifinals: Laggan 2nd vs. Char-Lan FC 3rd

Just two points separated these squads in the final regular-season standings. The series will kick off at the Lochiel field on Tuesday, July 31, at 8:30 p.m. Game two, on Aug. 7, will take place at North Lancaster Park (the current home field for the Char-Lan ladies due to ongoing work at the field in Williamstown).

Both series are best-of-three affairs, and we will have full details in The Glengarry News.
