With a 4-0 loss to Greenfield on Wednesday evening, the Glen Sandfield senior men's soccer team has officially been eliminated from playoff contention. The men will wrap up their summer tonight against league league-leading Vankleek Hill.
In other action tonight (July 27), McCrimmon and Dunvegan will play at the field at Lochiel, beginning at 8:30 p.m.
Playoff semifinal match-ups are now set, with Vankleek Hill pegged to take on Dunvegan, while McCrimmon will battle Greenfield. Both series will kick off Wednesday, Aug. 8, and we will have all the details in the next edition of The Glengarry News.
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.

This will be just the second time the Drillers hit the field, though officially it will be game three, as the team has a 3-2 loss and a forfeit on its record thus far. The squad has struggled with putting together a sufficient roster of players in the early stage of the GSLseasonn.
There's also a senior men's match in Dunvegan, where Greenfield will take on Glen Sandfield, at 8:30pm.
