Manitou earns shutout win
Manitou Forest Products slammed the door shut and James Pavier slid the deadbolt.
Pavier earned the shutout as first-place Manitou won 2-0 over the fourth-place La Place Rendez-Vous Voyageurs U18 in Borderland Soccer League men’s division play last night.
The Voyageurs (2-6-5) haven’t won in their last five outings, but tied three of those.
No result was available for the other men’s game last night between second-place International Travel Services (6-1-3) and last-place Senior Pharmasave (1-7-3).
In action Tuesday night, the Voyageurs and third-place Pharmasave (5-5-2) played to a 2-2 draw.
Joey Angus had both the goals for the Vous, with Muskie boys’ soccer head coach Shane Beckett making a rare appearance between the pipes.
Isaac Firth and Kevin Metke tallied for Pharmasave while Ben Whitburn was their keeper.
In women’s division action, meanwhile, the Voyageurs U18 dumped Al’s Racquet Stringing 9-4.
Hailey Beaudry and Angel McCormack each scored twice for the Vous (9-2-2), who extended their lead atop the standings.
Katie Sinclair, Amy Penner, Maggie Jean, Nicole Avis, and Jenny Hammond added singles.
McCormack, Alyssa Faragher, and Penner split the keeper duties.
Gaby Nussbaumer netted a hat trick for third-place Al’s (4-8-1) while Laureen Peters tallied the other goal.
Phyllis Pierson took the loss in goal.
Games tonight will see Al’s take on second-place Taggs (4-8-1) in the women’s division while Pharmasave and ITS clash in the men’s division.
The 7 p.m. start time will be the last of the season.
Games will get going at 6:30 p.m. starting next week to account for earlier sunset times.
