Digby senior boys, both junior teams chase gold


DIGBY - The Digby Regional High School senior boys soccer team gets a chance to bounce back this weekend at the Division 3 provincial championships in Brookfield.

In a shootout Oct. 24, the Mariners lost the Regional title to Bridgetown, but earned their way into the Provincials by coming out on top in a qualifying tournament this past Friday and Saturday at École du Carrefour in Dartmouth.

Led by a hat trick from Ryan Doucette, the Mariners won Friday’s game against Richmond Academy from Cape Breton, 4-0. Benedict Woelki netted the single.

On Saturday, Digby was slated to play the host Carrefour, but the Dartmouth school forfeited when it was unable to field enough players.

Mariners coach Oliver Janson says four teams qualified for the provincial championship—Digby, Bridgetown, New Germany and the host South Colchester Academy.

“We don’t know who we play yet, but it is just the semi-finals on Friday and then a bronze medal and gold medal game on Saturday,” Janson said.

A matchup with Bridgetown would give the Mariners an opportunity to improve on their finish in the Regionals where they held a 2-1 lead late in the second half, but saw Bridgetown score in the closing minutes of regulation time, which ended in a 2-2 draw.

Digby had won both its first round game at Regionals, downing New Germany 2-1 in a shootout.

This is soccer week for Digby Regional High School with both junior teams, boys and girls, playing for the Regional championship in games tomorrow, Tuesday.

The junior boys team won the District title by downing Middleton 4-0 on Oct. 22, and host this week for the Regional championship.

The first game is scheduled for 10 a.m., with a second at 11:30, and consolation and medal games in the afternoon.

The junior girls downed Clare 2-0 to win the District championship and advance tomorrow’s Regionals playoffs in New Germany.
