Soccer action will take over Williamstown on Saturday, June 24, with the return of the Kicks for a Cure tournament, in support of Beyond 21.
New this year, the matches will be played on the fields at the public school, rather than the high school.
From the organizers, this reminder to participants: Teams are asked to show up 15 minutes early for each game. Being more than 10 minutes late for a game will result in an automatic forfeit.
The tournament is co-ed and one girl must be on the field at all times.
All proceeds will be donated to Beyond 21. Beyond 21 is a support program for adults with developmental disabilities. It is a registered charity that receives no government funding and is dependent on fundraisers and donations to maintain their program. At Beyond 21 they are Dream Chasers. They partner with adults with developmental disabilities, learn what their dreams are for their future, and help them to learn the skills they need, and make the connections they need to achieve their dreams. Their vision is to enable adults with developmental disabilities to live connected, respected, and contributing to our community.
The event is being organized by Colton Gallant and Candyce Gallant.

- ERSL U18 girls soccer: Glengarry vs. OSU
- GSL senior men's soccer: Drillers vs. McCrimmon
- 2017 Marc Legault Memorial Soccer Tournament
We will have stories about these events in the next edition of The Glengarry News.
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.
