Extreme heat forces GSL to postpone July 2 soccer matches

sean Jul 2, 2018 - 2:28pm

All scheduled July 2 soccer matches in the Glengarry Soccer League have been postponed.

That's the word coming down from the GSL admin today as a result of the extreme heat that has stricken our county.

Given the extreme weather conditions (heat advisory) and the risk of severe thunderstorms, the Glengarry Soccer League has decided in the interest of the safety of our members to cancel all games for Monday, July 2, 2018.

Games will be rescheduled for Sunday, July 8 at the same time and location (provided the field is available) and we will continue to monitor the weather for the remainder of the week.

Monday's postponed games include youth and tier 2 men's action.

With hot weather forecast to continue this week, it's likely that there will be additional postponements in the days ahead.

ERSL postpones action as well

The Ottawa-based ERSL, which includes youth Glengarry Hearts teams, was evaluating the status of its matches at the time of this post.

However, we do know that the U13 girls game slated to be played in Alexandria has been deferred to a later date.

For the first time this GSL season, VKH doesn't win

sean Jun 28, 2018 - 3:08pm

McCrimmon's senior men's soccer team last night played Vankleek Hill to a 2-2 tie. The draw was the first time that the northerners hadn't won this season, with VKH's record now dropping to 5-1-0.

Meanwhile, McCrimmon remains just behind, at 4-1-1.

In other June 27 action, Greenfield pounded Glen Sandfield 7-1.

We will have the details next week in The Glengarry News.

There's one more senior men's GSL match on tap this week, slated for the pitch at Dunvegan on Friday, June 29, where the host side will take on Greenfield at 8:30 p.m.

This is the first season for the Wildcats playing in the OFC. Previously, they competed in the OVFL, which is now defunct.

The OFC varsity league provides provincewide football for teens aged 17 to 19.

Saturday's game is set for a 1 p.m. opening kickoff.
