Soccer Wins Three, Ready to Host Jesuit Soccer Classic
On Friday, September 14, Varsity Soccer earned its second WCAC win of the year with a victory over Bishop Ireton on Buchanan Field, 2-0. Here are somed great photos of the action.
On Tuesday, September 18 the Eagles defeated Bishop O'Connell, 3-0 at Long Bridge Park. Junior Ryan Elie started the scoring early after an assist from Senior Sebastien Tabash. The Eagles would not score again until late in the 2nd half with goals coming from Sophomore Will Thompson and Junior Brady Young. Senior Gonzalo Bartoli-Piniero recorded his fourth shutout of the season. The next day, in the last game before this weekend's Jesuit Soccer Classic, the team beat Geogretown Prep, 2-1 on the road.
The Eagles are now to 3-0 in the WCAC, and 6-1 overall.
Gonzaga has the honor of hosting the 21st Jesuit Soccer Classic on Friday, September 21 and Saturday, September 22. The Classic started initially as a match between Rockhurst (MO) and Marquette University High School in Milwaukee, WI, and over the years expanded to include Gonzaga and Regis Jesuit from Aurora, CO.
The Classic gives all student-athletes, coaches, and families an opportunity to come together, play four matches, participate in mass, and get to know other Jesuit school communities from across the country. We get to know these families and communities very well given that the host school's families host all the players from the visiting Jesuit schools each year. This year, we as a program will be hosting 75 student-athletes from the above mentioned schools.
Come out to Eye Street to support this wonderful event. Here is the complete schedule of games:
