    In an exciting NIC match at Penn High School, Saint Joseph found the winning goal in the 68th minute from junior Lauren Frick off a corner kick with the assist coming from senior Lainey Eder. Saint Joe earned the 1-0 victory in a terrific match highlighted by quality play from both sides. Saint Jospeh junior goalkeeper Shea Anderson turned away 10 shots including a quality chance from Penn on a corner kick in the first half. A total team effort on defense earned a clean sheet and pushed the Saint Joe's record to 7-6-2 on the year (3-0 in the NIC) and unbeaten in their last 7 matches. Next up for Saint Joe is an away match on Saturday vs Guerin Catholic at 1:00 p.m. Saint Joe will return home on Tuesday, September 26 for the final regular season match vs Marian with the JV to kick-off at 5:00 p.m. and the Varsity match to follow at approximately 7:00 p.m.

    A fourth quarter rally was not enough for Saint Joe’s JV Football team to overcome the New Prairie lead. Both of Saint Joe’s touchdowns came from passes from Eli Young to Dallas Downey. 1 for 5 yards and one from 19 yards on a spectacular toe tap by Downey. Then the combo matched up again for a two-point conversion.

    Saint Joe hosts Elkhart at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, September 23.

    Friday night, Saint Joe hosted the New Prairie Cougars on Fr. Bly Field. Saint Joe took the opening kickoff back to midfield. Then they moved quickly leading to an Alex Ortiz touchdown pass to Hayden Miller from the 5-yard line. New Prairie struck back with their own long drive culminating in a 1-yard run for a touchdown. Saint Joe answered with another Ortiz to Miller touchdown pass of 28 yards. In the second quarter, New Prairie took the upper hand scoring on two long quarterback runs.


    Saint Joe came roaring out of halftime with a quick forced fumble recovered by Caleb Boyd. That led to a third Ortiz-Miller connection, and Jerry Jones’ kick made it a 22-19. New Prairie was able to score again on a quarterback run from the 1 yard line. Then Saint Joe thought it had closed the gap with another touchdown, but an inadvertent whistle put the ball on the 3-yard line where a fumble gave New Prairie the ball again. A quick stop gave Saint Joe another shot. This led to the fourth iteration of Ortiz-to-Miller scoring. Jones’ kick brought it to a three point deficit. New Prairie was able to move the ball and finally got stopped in Saint Joe territory leaving Saint Joe with only 10 seconds left. The last play of multiple laterals fell short, and Saint Joe finished on the wrong end of the tight score.


    Next Friday, Saint Joe travels to Rice Field in Elkhart for a 7:00 p.m. kickoff.

    The Adams JV team came to Leighton Stadium Saturday morning, looking to give Saint Joe its first loss of the season. Would Saint Joe stand tall, or would the Eagles prevail? How much time do we need to win? Let’s find out! The first half was a defensive battle. Adams scored first on a long pass play, but Saint Joe answered quickly with a drive capped by a Ziare Tshimanga 4-yard run. In the second half, Saint Joe took the team down the field to score on a pass from Eli Young to Evan Balint. Ryder Place kicked the extra point. Then it was Adams’ turn to answer with a turnover and short field that give them a 4-yard run for 6 points. Next, Adams intercepted a pass and returned it 80 yards to paydirt. Saint Joe responded when Young again connected with Balint this time for 50 yards. Another Young to Balint completion gave Saint Joe the 2-point conversion. Then Adams was able to score on a QB sneak to take a 5 point lead with less than a minute remaining. The Saint Joe faithful still believed, but time was running out. The next possession got to the 5 yard line where Eli Young ran to the corner and scored with no time left on the clock. Saint Joe triumphed, and we have our answer to how much time do we need: 43.8 seconds. Saint Joe travels to New Prairie at 6 p.m. next Monday afternoon.

    Saint Joe defended the Adams Eagles with a “No Fly Zone.” The Saint Joe ground game set the tone early when Franco Biffle blasted a 9-yard run into the end zone. Following that score, Brady Farrell robbed the first of the 4 interceptions Saint Joe had on the night. This was followed by an Alex Ortiz 3-yard run. Jerry Jones kicked the extra point. Then it was Jack Haigh’s turn to get a pick. Adams returned the favor, but at the end of the first half, Hayden Miller intercepted the ball at the 50-yard line and zig-zagged all the way back to go into halftime up 20-0. Biffle scored his second TD on a 3-yard run, capping the first drive of the second half. Adams got on the board with a 1-yard run. Saint Joe answered when Miller ran a sweep 55-yards for his second score. In the fourth quarter, Ortiz connected with Brayson Hurley on an 11-yard pass. Jones was again good. Ryan Ruszkowski got the teams fourth pick which led to Noah Boutsomsy’s 2-yard run. Jones was good for both fourth quarter TDs. This was Saint Joe’s third win in a row by a margin greater than 35 points. Next week, Saint Joe hosts the New Prairie Cougars at 7:30 p.m.
