The first games of both the senior men's and senior women's Glengarry Soccer League indoor championships are in the books, with the Bar Flies and Glen Nevis winners.
Tonight, March 21, the Bar Flies took down McCrimmon 5-3, in a roller coaster men's match that saw the bulk of the scoring in the second half. In fact, just one goal, from the Bar Flies, was notched before the interval.
Wednesday evening had the women's opener. Glen Nevis held a 2-0 lead until the late going when Dunvegan drew even. Overtime failed to determine a winner, so it was on to penalties, where Glen Nevis prevailed.
The second contest for the women goes next Tuesday, while the men will be back at it next Thursday.
