Drillers live to play another day: game on Friday night

sean Jun 8, 2017 - 12:20pm

The Drillers senior men's soccer team will be back in action Friday (June 9) night on the pitch at the Glengarry Sports Palace, in Alexandria, where the men will entertain Team McCrimmon. Game time is set for 8:30pm.

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.

Last week saw a pair of Glengarry Soccer League senior women's soccer matches postponed.

Of games that did proceed, Glen Nevis shellacked Greenfield 12-0, Char-Lan clipped Laggan 2-1, and Glen Sandfield edged Vankleek Hill 3-2.

This week's slate of contests kicks off tonight, with action in Dunvegan (vs. Laggan) and North Lancaster, where Glen Nevis will take on Vankleek Hill. Both are 8:30pm starts.

Tier 2 men

Just one tier 2 men's result to report from last week, as McCrimmon edged Glen Nevis 3-2.

Drillers GSL senior men's team in limbo

sean Jun 6, 2017 - 2:30pm

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.
