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.
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.

Austin Main paced the offence with a trio of touchdowns, while Nathan Sauve added two majors as part of the Gaels' scoring. Coach Jeff Dorn says the defence played as one, forcing three turnovers in the contest.
Meanwhile, the peewees remained winless, falling last Sunday 50-6, in Cornwall. On May 31, the peewee Gaels dropped a 40-6 decision, with Jack Marion scoring the lone TD, late in the contest.

The Empire Super Sprints raced at the Cornwall Motor Speedway on Sunday evening, the class' first visit since 2008.
In the 25-lap feature, Paulie Colagiovanni brought the red on the initial start, though he escaped without any injuries. On the restart, Jordan Poirier took the lead over Jake Brown, while Alex Vigneault took third. Unfortunately for him, he soon hit the wall hard in the backstretch, ending his night. Two more laps were done in the feature when Coleman Gullick and Chris Jones got together. Jordan Poirer pulled away from the rest of the field, as his uncle took second, and Alain Bergeron completed the top three. It was Poirier's first career win in the ESS.
In other events on Sunday night, Luke Whitteker led the way at the start of the 30-lap Modified feature. With just one lap done, Brian McDonald went off the track in turn 3. Whitteker retained the lead, with Gabriel Richer joining the top three, but he was soon passed by Mario Clair. While the leader had a good lead over the field, Clair passed Marc Therrien for second, with 14 laps to go. Whitteker went on to win his first event of the season, in front of Clair and Chris Raabe.
CD Beauchamp had a quick start in the 25-lap Pro-Stock race. Kody Kelly was quick on the outside lane, with Kevin Fetterly moving to second as Beauchamp faded to third. Caution came out on lap 5 for Roch Aubin, who was stopped in turn 2. On the restart, Fetterly was strong, taking the lead over Kelly. Fetterly resisted challengers in the latter portion of the race from Dave Bissonnette and George Renaud, who would go on to round out the top three finishers. The win for Fetterly was his first of 2017.
