On Newman’s Field, Jays Score a Single Goal and Hold on to Shut Out Greenies
The Blue Jays went uptown on Saturday, Feb. 1 to play Newman in what has become a traditional regular season-ending soccer match for both teams. After a scoreless first half, Jesuit notched a goal in the 52nd minute when Evan Kramer’s corner kick found the toe of Mitch Bourgeois’s right shoe. Bourgeois nailed the goal from about six yards out. It was the only score of the match.
Lucky Off the Irish
The day before (Friday, Jan. 31), the Blue Jays hosted Grace King at John Ryan Field and had plenty of opportunities to score, but could not find their groove. Neither team could score in the first half. Then, Luke Hahn scored on a header to put the Jays up, 1-0. However, the Irish tied the match a few minutes later. It appeared the game would go into overtime when Evan Kramer sent a corner kick to Chase Rushing who headed the ball in for a 2-1 win. The match ended a couple of minutes later.
