Bishop Macdonell secures first-place finish in senior soccer
GUELPH – The Bishop Macdonell Celtics clinched a first-place finish in the District 10 high school baseball league standings with a game to go in their regular season following a 4-2 victory over the St. James Lions Thursday.
Ethan Fraser led the Celtics with a pair of goals while Chris Qushair and Tyler Frigon each had one goal.
Adam Karaudu and Alex Babol scored for St. James.
The win keeps Bishop Mac unbeaten at 6-0-0 and makes them uncatchable Tuesday on the final day of the regular season. Centennial Spartans are second at 4-1-1 and will finish in the top four who are to host quarter-final playoff games next week. Guelph CVI Green Gaels are third at 3-1-2 and are also assured of a home game in the quarter-finals while the Ross Royals are fourth at 3-2-1. They can finish in a tie with the Orangeville Bears, who are currently fifth at 2-3-1 and Orangeville will win the tie-breaker as Orangeville edged Ross 2-1 Sept. 26. St. James is sixth at 1-3-2 while the Centre Wellington Falcons are seventh at 1-4-1 and the Lourdes Crusaders are eighth at 0-6-0 and will finish eighth. That means a quarter-final game at Bishop Mac next Thursday.
