WCSS sports: Soccer, basketball, volleyball and hockey

DUNROBIN – The National Capital Secondary School Athletic Association (NCSSA) fall sports season is well underway and the West Carleton Secondary School Wolves are representing well in a variety of sports.

On Wednesday (Oct. 26), the Wolves Tier 1 junior boys soccer team battle St. Pius X High School to a 1-1 draw on their Dunrobin home turf.

St. Pius X opened the scoring in the first half, but West battled back and early in the second half scored the equalizer.

The draw gives the junior soccer team a 2-0-4 record and an undefeated season so far.

WCSS has wins over Omer-Deslauriers (4-1) and Earl of March (5-2). Its other ties come against Nepean, Merivale and All Saints.

The Wolves 4-0-2 record is good enough for second in the NCSSAA West Division just behind All Saints (3-0-2) and ahead of St. Pius X (2-1-2).

The season wraps up Monday (Oct. 31) and playoffs start Nov. 3. While the Wolves have made the playoffs, matches won’t be determined until the end of the regular season.
