The boys and girls varsity teams both walked away with a draw in play against Ravenswood in Tuesday evening play.

The boys team fell behind in the 19th minute on a Ravenwsood PK resulting from a foul in the box on a throw in, much to the dismay of the SJ fans who traveled up for the game.  The Irish came back to tie the game in the 30th minute when Senior # 32 Nick Turner dribbled the ball through though Ravenswood defenders and finished with a tap in past the keeper. St. Joe had multiple opportunties during the second half to pull ahead, but attempts did not gel, resulting in a draw. Match pictures can be found on the Photo Gallery page.  The boys varsity team's next game is at Spring Valley on September 7th in a varsity girls and boys doubleheader.
