8th Grade Team Wins Varsity Playoffs

Congratulations to the 8th grade varsity soccer team, for finishing their regular season undefeated as well as winning the league championships this past weekend!!

Playoff game one was against St. Gabriel’s, defending champions from last year. Saint James came out strong ending the first half 3-0 and dominating the game until the end with a 4-0 win.

The Championship game was against Corpus Christi who beat St John Paul in a close 2-1 victory earlier that morning.  SJS defeated Corpus in an intense, well played game ending in a score of 2-1. The team closed out the season as undefeated Champions, bringing home 2 more trophies for our school.

Phenomenal effort was shown by everyone on and off the field.  Alec Bairos led the team with 4 of the 6 goals scored in the tournament, with assistance from Asrar Hossain.  A special acknowledgement also to the team’s goal keepers Dominic Cavallo and Kyle Pelletier for making some tremendous saves in both games to secure the victory.
