St. Joseph jumped to an early lead in game one and and did not look back, winning the game by 18 points. Cathedral got on the stick in game 2 and reminded St. Joseph’s they had history at the CYO Championship tournament with an early 8-4 lead. St. Joseph’s not willing to lay down and take it, fought back every inch of the way to a 15 – 15 tie. Cathedral went ahead by three and St. Joseph tied it up at 22. St. Joseph had Cathedral on the ropes at 24 – 23 with the serve. Lauren Stemple served the final ball and scored for St. Joseph and the CYO Championship. A great game by both teams.
Both teams have high school varsity potential and we will see them playing for local high schools in the future for sure.
