Yesterday, at SUNY Maritime, the Cathedral Crusader soccer team played in the Championship game. It was a hard fought battle for our team. After the first half of play the Crusader’s were down 2-0.
The second half the young men fought their way back. An early penalty kick by Danny Goncalves in the second half brought the team within 1. After a Cathedral corner kick there was a scuffle in front of the goal, which knocked the ball loose leaving an open net for Kelvin Garcia to drive one home. The Crusaders now tied the game 2-2.
Unfortunately, Sacred Heart scored a scrappy goal off of a corner kick. The final score was 3-2 Scared Heart. The Crusader’s played the Cathedral way, never giving up and never giving in. We are extremely proud of the young men on this team. They portray the true meaning of sportsmanship and they without a doubt bleed Crusader blue. Thank you to all of the fans who came out and supported Cathedral. We want to congratulate the following 4 seniors for making the All-Conference Team:
