School Roundup: Spartans clinch CCL with win over Austin Prep

With a 2-1 win over Austin Prep on Wednesday night, the St. Mary's boys soccer team remained undefeated and clinched the Catholic Central League. Goals for the Spartans were scored by Thiago DeOliveira, assisted by Connor Mackey, and Nolan Perez, assisted by Joseph Thongsythavong.

"We've won the league three out of the last four years," St. Mary's coach Mike D'Agostino said. "I'm very pleased. We won the City Tournament, the CCL and now we're focused on states."

Goalie Richie Mateo turned in another strong performance.

"Richie played great in net," D'Agostino said. "We had a lapse and allowed a goal but he was great all night. He's only let in three goals in 12 games. Nolan, Ryan Ramsey and Connor all played great in the back. Thiago came back from an injury and played great for us."

St. Mary's (12-0) is back in action on Monday at Archbishop Williams.

Midfielders Kevin Aroke and Andrew Prousalis and defender Jacob Casallas also played well for the Tanners (5-5-1).

"We need seven points to get into the tournament and we've got seven games left," McKeen said. "We have to win some games."
