Last Friday and this past Tuesday saw the soccer season continuing for St. Marys DCVI and the four teams emerged from their games with some points.
On Friday, the junior boys and girls teams were in action on the road at South Huron District High School. In the first game for the boys, they faced St. Anne’s in a game that was hard fought and exciting. However, the boys were just unable to pull off a tie or victory, falling 3-2. The boys used that as motivation, however, for their second game against F.E. Madill. Led by three goals from Liam DeNeve, the boys blew out the boys from Madill with a very impressive 6-2 win. While the boys were busy scoring a pile of goals, the junior girls were just as successful, however, didn’t have the same type of games. In the girls’ first game with St. Anne’s, they were able to pull out a close 1-0 victory, thanks to very good teamplay and goaltending. In their second game, their habits from the first game continued, and both teams played hard but neither were unable to best the other, as the girls tied their second game 0-0.
After a very good outing by the junior teams last Friday, it was the senior boys and girls’ turns earlier this week on Tuesday at home at DCVI. In the opening game for the boys, they put in a strong effort, however, could not crack the team from Listowel, falling 2-0. After that, they looked to get back on track and were able to score twice against the visiting Central Huron. Despite not getting the victory, the boys finished the game tied 2-2 with Central Huron. Once again, much like the junior teams’ results, the girls and boys’ results mirrored each other. In the first game for the girls against the visitors from Listowel, the girls played hard and worked well as a team, but unfortunately fell 3-0. In the second game, the girls were motivated from their first outing and tied with the girls from Central Huron with a 1-1 final score.
The girls and boys of DCVI will continue on this week as they get into the mid-point of their seasons. The junior boys and girls will be hosting two games each on Thursday against St. Michael’s and Goderich. Meanwhile, the senior boys and girls will be heading to St. Michael’s Catholic Secondary School on Tuesday for two games against St. Mikes and Goderich.
