St. Joseph soccer advances in playoffs

By  | 

St. Joseph beat Highland Chinquapin Prep in penalty kicks to move on in the soccer playoffs Tuesday night.

This is the farthest the Eagles have ever advanced in the playoffs. They will face Houston St. Thomas Episcopal on Saturday in the Regional round.

Through the first five kicks, it was tied. In sudden death goalkeeper Matthew Nelson made the save and Jake Drabek followed up by making his kick to secure the win.

Izzy Barajas scored on a penalty kick in regulation on a foul in the box to knot the game at 1 on a very muddy field.
