Both teams had a Thursday bye, which allowed for extra practice before Saturday's home doubleheader against Huntington High. Both teams played in on-off rain showers on Saturday in front of large home crowds.  The girls fell behind the Lady Highlanders in the 1st period, trailing 0-2 at the half.  Three more Huntington goals in the 2nd period had the Lady Irish facing a shutout.  However, a Huntington foul  in the 69th minute setup a free kick by #18 Griffin Dempsey from 30+ yards out on the right side, which sailed into the back of the net, denying a clean sheet from the HHS keeper - final score, St. Joe 1, HHS - 5.  Click here for the box score.  The St. Joe boys struck early in their match, when #3 Stephen Jenkins got by Highlander backfield in the 7th minute to score.  Huntington awoke and scored 3 times unopposed inside the 18, twice off throw ins and once on a corner kick between the 20th and 25th minute to put the Highlanders on top 3-1 at the half.   Huntington struck again early in the 2nd half off of a free kick by #29 Beau Simpson in the 45th minute, setting the score at 4-1.  Irish #11 Brian Conaty added one to the board in the 52nd minute on a PK resulting from a HHS penalty in the box.  The match ended in a 4-2 St. Joe loss.  Click here for the box score.
