Boys Soccer: Sacred Heart Cathedral 1, Bellarmine (San Jose) 0
The Irish (5-0, 1-0) made school history when they won their first Central Coast Section Division III championship last season and took another big step Saturday.
With a win over the Bells (0-1, 0-1), Sacred Heart won its first game at Bellarmine since 1975. The lone goal came from senior Oscar Reyes in the 71st minute.
“As a 17-year coach in the historic West Catholic Athletic League, I have always viewed Bellarmine’s program as the best around,” said Sacred Heart head coach Jeff Wilson. “My inspiration has always been to take [Sacred Heart] to the level of Bellarmine, so beating them at their place today is not only special for me but for the entire program. If anyone deserves praise, it is the young men who represent the varsity this year. As they said to me before the game, they want to build on last year’s CCS title and keep making history. So far, so good.”
