stmarysAcademe of Aurora 2 St. Mary's 0 - NFCAA Semifinals

This past Tuesday afternoon, the Bison participated in their first NFCAA playoff game as the #3 seed against the #2 seed Academe of Aurora. The Panthers had outscored us in two games this season by the total of 11-2. That said, we needed to sure up our defense in an effort to keep the game competitive enough so that we could pull off the upset victory.

Throughout the course of the 1st half our defense and keeper took on a barrage of shots and were able to turn most of them away with the exception of two. In the second half, we continued to stymie our opponent defensively and what was once easy for them to score against us became a struggle. On the other half of the field, our offense had some golden opportunities to tie up the game. Both Givon Blackwell and Nick Barrus either missed a wide open shot or rang a shot off the cross bar. Either way, we weren’t able to get on the scoreboard and the Falcons were able beat us 2-0 and advance to the championship. That was our final game of the season and although we weren’t able to accomplish all of the goals we had set forth for ourselves at the start of the school year, we are excited about the potential success for the future.
