Reported by Mr. Ben Eyre, Head of the English Department, Varsity Soccer Coach
The Sacred Heart Soccer team are undefeated Kanto League Champions. The team's fast, flamboyant and flair-filled attacking football resulted in Sacred Heart's first soccer league title.
Records tumbled all year: the team scored the most goals ever, conceded the least goals ever and saw individuals break records for goalscoring, goal assists and for shutouts.
Sacred Heart also powered their way to the Far East final, cruising undefeated through Pool Play, smashing CAJ 7-0 in the quarterfinal and then beating record Far East winners, Osan 3-1 in the semifinal. Hosts, MC Perry finally put a stop to Sacred Heart's streak, with a narrow 2-0 win in a very close final game.
This year's seniors: Joyce, Linda, Katie, Hana, Erika and Lisa led the team throughout the season and their successes this year are deserved after their 6 years of commitment to Sacred Heart Soccer. Next year's captains, Emu and Sara (11) will be building a 2018 team to be proud of with Risa (11), Tisha (10), Alisa, Karin, Alice, Janice, Hannah and Hana (9) all returning. Added to which, players from this year's impressive Junior Varsity team and grade 8 players moving up to high school will help to round out the Varsity squad next year.
Thank you to all of the players, their parents and their supporters.
