Boys, Girls Soccer Win District Championships

Jackie Schlossberg and Ayla Johnston celebrate a goal in the Falcons’ 4-1 win over ODA.

The Falcons completed a sweep last week, with both soccer teams winning 1A-District 7 soccer titles. The girls took a 2-1 lead into halftime on Thursday and added two more second-half goals to overwhelm Out-of-Door Academy, 4-1. It was the Falcons first district championship since 2014 and propels them into a regional quarterfinal on Tuesday (Feb. 5), when they’ll host First Baptist Academy. On Friday, the boys got a pair of gutsy goals from senior Noah LaBelle in overtime to top Bradenton Christian, 4-2, and capture their ninth consecutive district crown. The win also extended Saint Stephen’s unbeaten streak in district play that now dates back nearly a decade. Since the end of the 2009-10 season, the Falcons are an unbelievable 49-0-3 in district regular-season and tournament play. The boys open regional play at home on Wednesday night (Feb. 6) against Community School of Naples.
