(Elgin) – It was a great week for the Glengarry District High School (GDHS) soccer program.

After the boys’ team won the EOSSAA Senior Boys’ A Soccer Championship at home on Tuesday, the senior girls’ team matched their efforts Wednesday, taking the gold at the EOSSAA Senior Girls’ A Soccer Championship at Rideau District High School in Elgin. The senior girls beat the hometown Lions 3-0, launching a repeat drive at the upcoming OFSAA Girls’ A Soccer Championship after the Gaels won gold at the 2015 competition, said Coach Scott McPherson.

“We were able to score early,” said McPherson of the win. “They were on us pretty hard in the first five minutes, but then we were able to push back, score and score two more in the first half.”

Outside mid-fielder Olivia Graham put the Gaels on the board 10 minutes into the game on a shot from 18 yards out. Five minutes later inside midfielder Cameron Brodie scored on a through ball, while Brianna Brogham topped off the scoring 20 minutes into the game, taking a ground cross and shooting to the top of the box.

Rideau Coach Scott Halladay gave the Gaels credit for a skilled game in the final, but was happy with the consolation prize – the second tournament berth at OFSAA on June 2-4 in North Bay.

“We made it to OFSAA and that is a huge accomplishment,” Halladay said of his team. “We want to congratulate Glengarry, and we’re hoping that if things work out next week we’ll see them in the medal round.”
