Drillers GSL senior men's team in limbo

sean Jun 6, 2017 - 1:30pm

The Glengarry Soccer League is working to salvage the Alexandria-based Drillers senior men's soccer team for the 2017 season.

The squad's first game of the season was to be played May 26 in Greenfield, but was postponed due to bad field conditions.

On May 31, the men saw action in Alexandria, where they fell 3-2 to Glen Sandfield. Names of goal scorers were not available.

Then the wheels fell off. The squad has faced a numbers crunch this year since the outset and was forced to forfeit a scheduled June 2 match with Vankleek Hill. Brennan Filion, one of the Drillers' organizers this year, is done for the season, having suffered a knee injury during a training session.

Future Drillers games are listed as pending, including the June 9 match in Alexandria, versus McCrimmon.

In other scheduled matches this week, Vankleek Hill and Glen Sandfield are slated to play June 7 on the VCI pitch, and on the 9th, Greenfield is scheduled to host Glen Sandfield.

McCrimmon remains unbeaten entering play this week, having dispatched Greenfield 2-1 in a game on June 2. Vankleek Hill is also without a loss thus far.
