High School Soccer:
Bishop Eustace Hustles to Stay On Top

The divisional battles are always very interesting as the season gets closer and closer to their final games. That’s usually the time that division titles are claimed adding a representation of their hard work to their school’s trophy case. It’s also that time that teams are working hard on the soccer field looking for that one opportunity to score a goal. Camden Catholic and Bishop Eustace were competing in an Olympic Conference National Division game that the Crusaders needed to win. Seneca were right on their heels in the standings, but the Irish were first on their minds. Two first half goals by Bishop Eustace was enough to hold off Camden Catholic by a 2-1 margin.

Bishop Eustace had loss to Shawnee and Timber Creek before picking up an important division win against the Golden Eagles from Seneca. It would be the second time this season that the Crusaders would defeat Seneca by a 3-2 score. It would also be the only two divisional losses for Seneca. Even with those victories, Bishop Eustace would still need a few more games to clinch the title. With their victory against neighboring Camden Catholic, the Crusaders would find themselves still fighting for first place as Seneca would keep pace defeating Paul VI. Kevin Duffy and Kyle Miller’s goals in the first half gave Bishop Eustace a lead that they kept for the entire game.
