Blessed Trinity Team Wins In Defensive Struggle
The Blessed Trinity First Grade Boys soccer team went on the road to play St. Luke’s on Saturday, October 2. The boys played a great defensive game from start to finish.
The team was led defensively by Gabriel and Christopher Tennyson, Conor Regan, Owen Ryan, Brian Yorke and Jack Galligan. Offensively, the team was led by Jack Owen, Sean Hanley, Patrick Kelly, Edward McCarthy-Coyne and Bobby Benoit.
In the first half, Christopher Tennyson did an excellent job in goal keeping Blessed Trinity in the game. He made a spectacular save on a point blank shot by a St. Luke’s forward, late in the first half, which kept the game scoreless in the half.
In the second half, Brian Yorke was in goal and he did a great job in the nets, with one save after another. The defensive struggle continued in the second half, with Coyne almost breaking the tie on a great shot which banged off the post. Coyne was now talking to himself as this was the third straight game in which he was denied a goal by a shot hitting off the post. Jack Ryan followed Edward’s lead with a breakaway that was stopped by a terrific save by the St. Luke’s goalie. Blessed Trinity now was on the offensive, and with a minute left in the game, it paid off when Tommy Davey took a corner kick and delivered the ball to the foot of Ed Coyne, who broke the tie by scoring the game winning goal to give the boys a hard earned 1-0 victory.
