The soccer boys will practice tomorrow and have a game Tuesday with Central Christian. That game will start at 4:00 and the boys will be released at 3:10 and depart at 3:20 for the game at C.C.A.

Next Saturday the volleyball teams will be back in action. The 6-7 team will have their matches at S.E.A.S. and will play St. Mary Newton at 8:30 and St. Margaret Mary at 11:00. The eighth graders will play at St. Francis taking on St. Mary-Derby at 12:40 and then go up against St. Mary-Newton at 2:20.

Thanks to all volleyball parents who helped the concession stand on Saturday. I really appreciate you taking the time to help out on a day when we had no teams playing at Holy Cross. Also soccer parents will be helping count the fall fundraiser turn-in tomorrow.

Soccer ties Wichita Defenders

The boys soccer team battled back twice in their game against the Wichita Home School Defenders. The Defenders scored the first goal of the game but the boys came back and tied the game up at 1-1. Later in the first half the Defenders again found the back of the net but early in the second half the boys tied it up again. The boys had a couple of near misses after that but none made it in the goal and the game ended in a 2-2 tie. The boys next game will be on Tuesday when they travel to Central Christian Academy. The game will have a 4:00 start.

Soccer team downs Elyria

Congratulations to the boys soccer team who defeated Elyria Christian School 3-0. The game saw both teams getting good looks at the goal in the first half but our boys dominated the second half scoring three times and having a number of other great looks.
In the B-game both teams fought hard but neither was able to find the net so the game end in a 0-0 tie. It has been great to see our young or inexperienced players show such good improvement during the season.
Our next game is Thursday night when the Wichita Home School Defenders come to Holy Cross for a 4:30 game

Sorry did not get any pictures of the game. My phone died just after I arrived at Elyria.
