Week #9 - the final week of regular season play for 2011.  

The week started on Tuesday (10/11) with the Girls traveling to Winfield and the Boys playing Nitro at home.  The girls played great defense, but were unable to stop the WVSSAC #3 ranked Lady Generals from scoring, resulting in a 0-4 loss.  The Boys got off to a slow start in their match against Nitro, scoring once in the 1st half.  However, as has been seen repeatedly during the season, the Irish awoke in the 2nd half, scoring another 6 goals and sending the Wildcats home with a 0-7 defeat.  
On Thursday (10/13) the Girls hosted Ravenswood in their final home game of the season.  The Lady Irish played an excellent 1st half, applying pressure, playing great defense, and setting up numerous scoring opportunities.  However St. Joe was unable to find the net.  The Lady Red Devils attacked back in the 2nd half, scoring their first goal at the 50th minute, leading to a 0-2 Lady Irish loss. 
On Saturday (10/15) the Girls hit the road to Wheeling to take on Linsly, while the Boys hosted Linsly at home.  Both St. Joe teams had to contend with gusty wind conditions, often affecting the ball direction in-flight.  The Girls fell 0-2 in their match and the Boys were unable to score, holding the Cadets to a 0-0 draw.
