The girls hockey team from Tagwi Secondary School will miss out on playoff action by the slimmest of margins.
Needing a win today in Long Sault to advance, the Warriors dropped a pair of contests to complete regular-season play tied for fourth place with La Citadelle, at 7 points.
So a tiebreaker was needed to determine which team would advance. Head-to-head they played once, tying 4-4. And both teams had 3 wins on the season.
The third tiebreaker step using the formula [GF/(GF+GA)] for all season games was then used.
- Tagwi's results: 4-4, 2-3, 2-1, 1-4, 2-1, 5-1, 1-2, 0-4 [17/(17+20)]=.46
- La Citadelle Scores: 4-4, 0-3, 5-0, 4-3, 1-2, 3-2, 3-4, 1-4 [21/(21+22)]=.48
La Citadelle wins the tiebreaker to claim the fourth seed for the playoffs. Tagwi officially finishes fifth, and their season is over.
St. Joseph's takes first place, followed by Holy Trinity and North Dundas to round out the post-season seeds.
The playoff tournament will take place Feb. 28 in Long Sault. We will have more details in next week's edition of The Glengarry News.

The UC Cup (or Upper Canada Cup) is a sports event organized for schools in the Upper Canada District School Board. There are regional qualifier tournaments across the span of the board, followed by a final tournament in each of a range of sports. Glengarry District and Tagwi field teams for the UC Cup events, while Char-Lan does not, opting instead to focus on the non-competitive Family of Schools sports events.
