In order to make up games from the first two weeks of the season that had to be postponed due to field conditions, some football games this spring will be played on weeknights, in addition to the usual Sundays.

The Glengarry Gaels took advantage of their mid-week play, scoring a pair of victories, as the tykes improved to 2-0 on the season with a victory Wednesday night, and the bantams kicked off their season with a rainy, shut-out win Thursday.

The tyke Gaels prevailed 30-18, led by Nacky Sharek (3 touchdowns). Elliott Keenan and Ben Jackman had the other Glengarry majors in the May 24 contest over Cornwall #2.

A night later, in wet, muddy conditions, Austin Main had the game's only TD, as the Gaels prevailed 8-0. The team added a third-quarter safety to round out the scoring, in the victory over the Cornwall Wildcats.

League play is scheduled to continue on Sunday, with games in Alexandria and Cornwall.
