americanAmerican 3 New York 1

This was an ugly game for our team as we had five offsides, too many missed opportunities to score, we shot ourselves in the foot and did not focus on the game. We finally got it together for the last 10 minutes of the game for a win. Today, we will play against Lexington. (Contributed by Head Coach Curt Hayward)

Marie Philip School made a trip to Peabody to face our league opponent, Covenant Christian Academy. The last game, we lost to them so we played with a different formation hoping to have a good game. We got two nice goals in the first half. We played really well, especially with our goalkeeper Dakota Rochette. He made a lot of amazing saves. MPS defensive lines had done a splendid task stopping CCA offensive lines, frustrating them as they tried to seize a goal. We got an opportunity of having a nice goal from a penalty kick to finish the game with a 3-1 score. (Contributed by Head Coach Jason Cserny)

MPS 2-1 = 3
CCA 0-1 = 1

stmarysSt. Mary's 2 Rochester 2

The Bison played host to our Western New York I-90 rival Rochester School for the Deaf Tuesday afternoon. Our team started off the match looking a bit lethargic having had a four-day Columbus day weekend break from soccer. Unfortunately, it took us about 15 minutes to truly find our feet. Luckily, Christian Lawrence had one of his best games of his career in goal and was able to limit the damage to just one goal from the Wildcats in the first half of play.

Once our boys were finally able to shake off the rust, we began to gradually spread out the field and establish a counter attack. That said, no matter how much effort you put forth, sometimes its having a little luck on your side that can sway momentum in your favor. In an effort to clear the ball out of our defensive zone, Ryan Brzezinski launched a kick that covered three-fourth of the soccer field. Although the kick wasn’t intended to be a shot, it found its way over RSD’s goal line to knot the score 1-1 at halftime. Both teams and the officials stopped for a solid minute just to appreciate what everyone had just witnessed. The official said in all of his years he has never seen a goal from that distance.

In the second half, the Bison used that spark of luck to take it to the Wildcats. Another goal by Nick Barrus gave us a 2-1 advantage on the scoreboard. With five minutes remaining in the game, it was clear that Rochester was playing with more sense of urgency and with the help of an extra attacker on offense, they were able to even up the score at 2-2 with a head ball off a corner kick. Both clubs had a few more chances to try and win the game but both the teams defenses were up to the task and didn’t allow another goal. The game ended in a 2-2 tie. After the match, both teams walked away knowing that in a few weeks they have the opportunity to play one another again at the annual ESDAA soccer tournament. It will then be determined who has the better team this season. (Contributed by Head Coach Bryan Booke)

Individual Stats:
Ryan Brzezinski: 1 goal
