The SDSSAA Boys Soccer Second Division showdown is set for Thursday; the girls may still have to wait.
Thanks to a 3-0 win over the Macdonald-Cartier Panthères, the Bishop Carter Gators moved into a first place tie with the Sacré-Coeur Griffons, both teams sitting pretty at 3-0 and ready to go head to head on June 2nd at 3:30 p.m. at the James Jerome Sports Complex.
Anthony Bertrand scored twice, Alexander Lynds added another and keeper Isaac Jeanveau turned aside everything that ESMC could throw his way as the Second Division teams prepare for post-season play which begins next Thursday.
Meanwhile, the Lasalle Lancers girls team also used a 3-0 decision to remain undefeated, blanking the Marymount Regals to make it four straight wins out of the gate, one more victory than the Lively Hawks, who look to pull even this afternoon, up against the Sudbury Secondary School North Stars.
Theresa Gauthier, Taylor St Onge and Madyson Biladeau all found the back of the net for coach Matt Cootes and company with the shutout registered by recently crowned NOSSA Senior Girls long jump champion Charlotte Eberlein.
But with nine teams in the girls second division, the Lancers and Hawks are not scheduled to face each other in regular season play - though the playoffs could be another story entirely.
The only remaining game on Tuesday would see the St Benedict Bears girls make it three clean sheets in as many games, downing the Macdonald-Cartier Panthères girls team by a final count of 2-0.
Emily Levesque would not be beaten between the posts for the Bears, given just enough offensive support thanks to tallies from Kaiden MacLean and Alyssa Eid.
