Regular-season action in the SDGAA high school varsity football league concluded today, when the Glengarry Gaels dispatched the CCVS Raiders, and the Holy Trinity Falcons prevailed over the Tagwi Warriors.
Final standings: St. Joseph's 5-0, Holy Trinity 4-1, la Citadelle 3-2, Glengarry 2-3, CCVS 1-4, Tagwi 0-5.
Playoff semifinals next week will feature the Panthers and Raiders on Thursday, with the Falcons and Patriotes playing on Friday.
Despite finishing in fourth place, the Gaels are barred from post-season play due to a league decision imposed because Glengarry's team is a combined effort of GDHS and VCI.
We will have all the details in The Glengarry News next week.
