Crusaders roll to win

STEUBENVILLE - The Catholic Central boys soccer team cruised past visiting Wheeling Central, 8-1, Tuesday on the Tony Recinella Soccer Field at the Crusaders Athletic Complex.

The Maroon Knights got on the board first in the first two minutes as Zach Medovic scored off a rebound.

It was all Steubenville Catholic Central from them as it took a 5-1 lead at halftime.

John-Paul McNamara scored via a Leo Herrmann assist. Jude Ledyard scored unassisted and Herrmann then found the net twice, once from Brady Bolger. Blake Kiedrowski added a penalty kick.

Herrmann booted home two more in the second half thanks to passes from Carlo Fabian and McNamara. Joey Schlich finished the scoring.

John Bolster and Austin Fowkes combined for eight saves for the winners.

Chadd Robrecht had seven saves for the Maroon Knights, who visit Brooke on Thursday.

Steubenville Catholic Central will take on Indian Creek at 2 p.m. Saturday at Harding Stadium as the final of four games as part of the Together For A Cure cancer awareness event.

Irish top Red Knights

TORONTO - The Toronto volleyball team dropped to 8-10 as visiting St. John Central grabbed a 25-23, 25-17, 25-17 victory on Tuesday.

"These ladies battled with a long-standing sound program all night," said Toronto head coach Chelsey Fletcher. "Clearly our best showing was in the first set. We came out hot in the second set and then stopped playing in-the-present ball. The girls now know they are capable and have increased their personal expectations.

"When we play in our head it's for a whole new reason now. That in and of itself is progress. However, as I shared tonight - they must dig in mentally and play the present ball. When you are trying to make an OVAC tournament there is no room for dwelling on the past."

Katie Spadafora led the way with 13 points and eight kills. Chelsea Anderson added eight points and two kills and Josey Jones eight points, three kills and two digs.

Amber Fuller added 10 points and six assists, Mykia West six kills and two blocks, Emily Anderson seven points and four digs and Miranda Robinson 11 points and two digs.

Toronto visits Weirton Madonna as part of a tri-match with Clay-Battelle on Wednesday.

FUS men's soccer wins

STEUBENVILLE - The Franciscan University of Steubenville men's soccer team defeated conference foe Pitt-Greensburg, 4-1, Tuesday at home.

A shot from FUS sophomore John Imbimbo was deflected in front of the goal and a waiting Brian Bobak finished it off to tie the game at 1.

"We were a little nervous in the first half," Barons head coach Ward Rogers said. "We had a chance to settle down at half time and in the second half we had longer possession and started to move the ball a little more crisply."

Joseph Duran, Imbimbo and Edwin de St. Aubin scored in the second half for FUS.

"We talked about our journey to the AMCC tournament and how it's going to go through checkpoints, today was the first checkpoint and we responded very well," Rogers said. "We can't get over confident in what we've been doing. There are still some weaknesses we need to work on we'll be doing that as we train."

The Barons visit Medaille College Saturday.

FUS women lose

STEUBENVILLE - The Franciscan University of Steubenville women's soccer team dropped a 1-0 decision to Pitt-Greensburg on Tuesday.

"I think we started to get a little comfortable and I think we start to assume that it was just always going to turn out well," FUS head coach Clare McBane said. "I also think we took this team for granted."

The Barons visit Medaille College Saturday.
