St. Joseph's Prep outlasts Roman Catholic in soccer

Posted: October 09, 2012

St. Joseph Prep's Colin McGlynn factored in each score Monday as the Hawks downed Roman Catholic, 2-1, in a Catholic League boys' soccer match at Archbishop Ryan.

The Prep struck early with McGlynn finding teammate Bill Savage for the only goal of the first half.

Clinging to a 1-0 lead, the Hawks were awarded a penalty kick after a player was taken down in the box in the 59th minute. McGlynn converted the kick to give his team a two-goal advantage.

Roman's Kristi Koritari scored in the 63rd minute, but the Hawks defense stood strong the rest of the way to move to 7-2-1 in league play.

Elsewhere in the Catholic League, La Salle raced out to a three goal halftime lead en route to a 4-0 win over visiting Bonner-Prendergast. The Explorers goalkeeper, Nick Higgins, needed just two saves to secure the shutout.

Archbishop Carroll's Joe Lasher completed his hat trick in the 12th minute to lead the host Patriots to a 10-0 win over Neumann-Goretti.

Father Judge scored twice in each half on the way to a 4-1 win over visiting Lansdale Catholic.

Mohamid Conde netted the first goal, and both scores in the second half to record a hat trick.

Pat Friend's two goals in the final 15 minutes came up just short as Archbishop Wood fell, 3-2, to Archbishop Ryan at United German Hungarians.
