The Griffin JV football team continued its winning ways with a dominant 46-0 victory over Chaminade last night. Leading the way for the Griffin offense with an impressive game passing the ball was Dillon Heeb, who threw touchdown passes to Corey Jokerst and Corey Watson. Watson, Adam Gilmore, and Nick Hebenstreit also added rushing touchdowns to the effort. The defense posted its second shutout of the season with impressive performances by Dave Eilerman, John Hooper, Austin LaBarge, Michael Lynch, and Joe Rearden. Hooper, LaBarge, Lynch, and Josh Resuta all helped preserve the shut out with timely interceptions. While there were numerous impressive performances on both sides of the ball, the play of the day belongs to Brendan Kertz, who blocked a Chaminade defender clear out of the field of play to spring Corey Watson for a huge gain on a screen pass. The Griffin JV football team will next be in action when they travel to Farmington on October 15.
Senior goalie Mike Allen got the shutout last night as the Varsity Soccer Griffs won a hard fought game vs SLUH. Blake Smugala scored the lone goal on a penalty kick with 3 minutes to go. The varsity team is now 1-0 in MCC Conference play and will play Chaminade tonight on The Heeb at 6:00. Come out to support your soccer team tonight!!!
The Jr. Griffin B-soccer team was able to salvage a 1-all draw at SLUH yesterday against a solid Jr. Bill team, the wind and other adverse conditions. The Griffs did have the better of play and quality chances. The hero of the match was Nick Auck finishing off a nice cross from Mitchell Lambert to equalize the match. Up next are the Wildcats from Eureka at home Friday @ 4:00pm.
The Freshman Soccer Team advanced to the championship game of the CBC Tournament by defeating SLUH yesterday in penalty kicks. Jonathan Giegling, Nick Wiss, Austin Tapella scored the penalty kick goals and Tom Marshall, after making a diving save while flying into the post in regulation time to keep the game tied at 0-0, saved three penalty kicks to help give the Griffins the win.
