The Saint Michael School Saints played their first match of the season on Monday, September 22, 2014 at Hilltop Montessori against their 7th and 8th grade team. It was a sunny, cool late afternoon. The Saints played a great, hour long game! SMS scored 2 goals and 13 shots were made on the opponent’s goal. 19 shots against our goal were saved! (Way to go, SAINTS!)

10/01 REMATCH at Winchester School:

The Saints had another exciting soccer game, "The re-match in the rain" at Winchester.

Great job Saints!
