It's been quiet but Season 2 is only 3 weeks old, the weekly write is back, and everything is about to change! These next couple of weeks leading up to the Winter Break are jam packed with enough YIS sporting events to more than make up for the little lull we have had. Of course, there have been a few matches this past week, that gave us YIS sports fans a little taste of what is to come.
The HS Boys Basketball teams opened up their home champaign this past Friday in fine fashion as a packed to the gills YIS gym witnessed both the JV and Varsity boys pull off convincing wins versus next door neighbor and local rival, St. Maurs. The JV started the night off with a 33-17 win, but the final result was not necessarily indicative of the final score, as the boys had to battle back from being down 11-13 at halftime.
Not to be outdone Varsity Boys followed suit and bounced back nicely from a tough outing against St. Marys the week prior, by beating St. Maur 's Varsity 36-20, building a little momentum for a big week ahead as they will have to take on ASIJ and have a rematch against St. Marys.
Finally, on a beautiful Saturday morning up at the YCAC, with Fuji crystal clear in the background, the MS Girls Soccer team got their season under way with a double header against Sacred Heart and Seisen. Considering the fact that they missed all their practices this past week due to PTSCs both girls had a good day on the pitch. The A team split the doubleheader by losing to Sacred Heart, but bounced back nicely for a the victory against Seisen. In the meantime, B team lost both, but the girls were thrilled that they scored in both games especially since for almost every one of them it was their first ever game of organized soccer.
As mentioned, tons of matches coming up the rest of the week, and beginning of next. Hope everyone has a chance to come out and cheer on the Dragons!
