In the boys’ Division I championship match, St. Paul’s Wolves, the No. 1 seed, capped off a truly miraculous season, going undefeated at 31-0-3 securing a dominant 3-0 victory over No. 3 arch rival Jesuit Blue Jays at Tad Gormley. St. Paul’s Barrick Roberts, the Wolves’ leading goal scorer, turned in a phenomenal performance netting two goals to help spark the St. Paul’s attack. Roberts was selected the Most Outstanding Player. Roberts talked about the championship match. “What a game. One of the biggest crowds we have ever seen in our entire life. We wanted to just put on a show for our parents and our fans,” Roberts said.
Roberts put the Wolves up 1-0 in the 13th minute. St. Paul’s senior captain Eric Guin made the Jesuit defense pay just about four minutes before the end of the first half finding the range, putting the Wolves up 2-0. Roberts finished off the scoring with six minutes left, assisted by Andrew Brouillette, sending the Wolves home victorious with their second straight state title.
St. Paul’s senior captain Byron Morgan did an outstanding job finding his teammates as the Wolves pushed the ball forward. Fellow senior team captain Davis Neitzschman gave St. Paul’s an early spark as he was able to work his way up field with quick bursts keeping the Jesuit defense on its heels in the early stages of the championship match.
St. Paul’s senior keeper Colin Hanley, who will be playing college soccer at Niagara University, turned in a another spotless stat sheet in the playoffs. Hanley and his Wolves’ teammates didn’t allow a goal in the playoffs, which is something they also accomplished last season, en route to the Division I crown.
Congratulations to St. Paul’s head coach Sean Moser and the Wolves on the successful completion of their unblemished season. Coach Moser and his Wolves will be featured on Northshore Sports March 12, airing from Mellow Mushroom.
