With the Catholic Conference Title on the line, the St. John’s Prep soccer team marched into BC High and won a tough, 2-0 road game.
“Anytime you can win at BC High it’s a big accomplishment,” said SJP (11-1-2) head coach Dave Crowell. “To win the title makes it that much better.”
Had the hosts won the contest then BC High would be conference champions but senior Mike Lanza’s fifth goal of the year and junior Paul Magazzu’s 11th goal of the year gave SJP the victory.
Keeper Zach Rowell made four saves for his fourth shutout while Greg French had a strong game in the midfield.
