St. Dom’s Fifth Grade Girls Win CYO Championship

Friday, 16 December 2011 00:00

You could watch a lot of soccer and it will be a long time before you see a game that was as exciting as the playoff between St. Dom’s and St. Aidan’s on Saturday, Nov. 19. The Bayhawks were down early and had to come back from a deficit. Katherine Williams saved several goals while playing defense and Erica Duke tied it up with 4 minutes left as regulation play ended in a 1-1 tie. Then the fun really began.

The Bayhawks brought out their mascot, cried, prayed, and a real live hawk flew over the soccer field. It would take all of that for the girls to win a double overtime; quadruple shootout game. The shootout became a sudden death match as Nicole Coccia put her kick in and Molly Milano came up with a big save for a 2-1 St Dominic win. An unbelievable finish to a well played soccer game.
