St. James soccer girls win twice, tie-breaker leaves Lions third
GUELPH—A pair of 6-0 triumphs Thursday at the Gryphon Soccer Complex lifted the St. James Lions into what ended up being a third-place finish at the completion of the District 10 high school girls’ soccer league’s regular season.
The Lions and Bishop Macdonell Celtics finished with identical 5-2-0 records, but Bishop Mac was awarded second thanks to its season-opening 2-0 win over St. James April 26.
The Ross Royals locked down a first-place finish with a scoreless draw with the Guelph CVI Green Gaels, that tie being the lone blemish on Ross’s record as the Royals finished at 6-0-1.
The Gaels were also nipped 1-0 by Bishop Mac Thursday to finish fourth at 4-2-1.
Centennial Spartans had a pair of wins to climb to a fifth-place finish at 4-3-0. They’re followed by the Centre Wellington Falcons at 2-5-0, Orangeville Bears at 1-6-0 and Lourdes Crusaders at 0-7-0.
The quarter-finals are to go Tuesday with the semifinals set for Thursday or Friday and the final scheduled for May 28.
