St. Pat's junior boys soccer coach Rich Prudom has coached his share of teams to LSSAA titles. In recent years, his St. Christopher Cyclones clubs have been perennial contenders for the junior boys high school soccer crown.
Tuesday at Norm Perry Park, Perry coached another junior boys team to a championship -- this time, representing St. Pat's.
"Different colours, same group of kids for the most part," said Prudom, after his team's 3-0 win over LCCVI.
The championship capped a dominant year for the new and improved Fighting Irish -- including playoffs, they finished 7-0, while outscoring their opposition 28-2.
Tuesday's final was not quite the cakewalk that the score might imply.
| two teams met in the regular season, it was "a bit of a lopsided win" for the Irish.
"But we expected a much closer game today and we got it."
"When it was 2-0, I said to our guys, 'the way things are going, it might be wise for us to get a third goal'," said Prudom.
That third goal came midway through the second half when Nick Desantis headed a ball into the LCCVI goal to put the game away.
Stefan Mallozzi recorded the shutout for St. Pat's.
