In junior varsity action, Brother Martin went undefeated, 5-0, with defense proving to be key, only allowing three goals the entire tournament, to win the championship against St. Thomas More. The Crusaders were down 2-0, but battled back to win the championship by a 3-2 margin.
"They played with great heart and great intensity," Brother Martin JV Head Coach Bob Rogers said.
