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.

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.
Travis Brisebois accounted for all the Glengarry scoring for the mosquito Gaels, with a pair of touchdowns, as Glengarry was felled 45-12.

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.
