As we reported last week in The Glengarry News, the SDGAA high school boys hockey playoffs are taking place today, in Long Sault.
The first semifinal pitted the fourth-place GDHS Gaels against the unbeaten St. Joseph's Panthers. The Gaels had a 3-1 lead, only to have the Panthers draw even. Overtime settled nothing, so it was on to a shootout, where St. Joe's prevailed to end the season for the GD boys.
The Panthers advance to the final, set for 1p.m, where they will face the winner of the other semifinal, which is being played now between Char-Lan and Seaway.
Back on Feb. 14, the regular season concluded. We had a recap in last week's The News.
Updating information in that article, Char-Lan's 5-0 win over North Dundas saw Landon Fraser (2), Riley MacDonald, Xandre Seguin, and John Richer all find the net. The Crusaders' second contest was a 4-0 loss to the Panthers.
Char-Lan coach Sean O'Farrell told The News that the St. Joe's goaltender had a particularly strong game, adding he hopes to have a rematch with the team in today's playoffs. If that happens, it will be with the SD&G title on the line.
St. Joseph's is also set to host EOSSAA, next week.
