St. Joseph Boys Soccer Team 2016-2017

Thank you Coach Joe Paul DeAngelo for helping the past two seasons, you made my job easier.


All Division Team Members: Austin Perkins, Michael Mansour, Tristan Hughes

Present plaques from MAIS


Alternate All-Star: Tyler Santucci


All-Star Players: Tres Santucci (1 assist in game) and Craig Gardiner (game winning goal and game MVP),


It has been an honor to coach these young men. To the seniors graduating I wish you nothing but the best of luck in your futures. To the underclassmen returning I wish you success throughout your high school careers and beyond high school. I would encourage many more young men to come out for the team next season as only 8 members will be returning to the team.


Thank you to all of the parents for helping me through the years and helping with feeding the players before games. This made road trips very easy.


Thank you to the Coach Strazi and the coaching staff and administration for support throughout the season.


I will miss this school and it will always hold a place in my heart.


Coach Craig Mandolini


St. Joseph Boys Soccer Team 2015-2016


From last years (2014-2015) record of (3-8) (3-5 in district) we improved to (9-7-2) (5-3 in district). We came in second in our district and made the play-offs for the first time in 3 years. This season was a major improvement from last year and next year looks to be another improvement. We are losing 4 seniors off of our squad this year and we will miss them, but look forward to a bright future. We will return 9 lettering veterans with more experience and excitement for an exciting year to come. Our team, this year, racked up 39 goals and only allowed 17. Junior, Craig Gardiner, led the team with 12 goals and Junior, Tres Santucci, was right behind him with 11 goals. Sophomore, Myles McMillan, led the team with 5 assists. Junior, Tristan Hughes, made 64 saves on the year as he became the dominant keeper mid-way through the season. Tyler Santucci, Craig Gardiner, and Tres Santucci were all three selected to the 2015-2016 MAIS All-Region Team. A great addition to the staff has been Coach Joe Paul DeAngelo, who came in to help with the team at the beginning of the season. We hate to see our seniors leave but are very excited about the bright future that St. Joe Soccer has in store.

St. Joe Boys Soccer 2014-2015


From last year, St. Joe Boys Soccer improved from a (1-10) (0-8 in district) record to a (3-8)   (3-5 in district). Although we did not make the playoffs, the end of the season proved to be a bright light for next year. We are not losing any seniors and will have the entire team returning with more experience with another season under our belt. We scored 16 goals more than doubling the 7 last year. We had 10 new player added to the roster this year, and 6 of those 10 had never played soccer before. We did a lot of learning and growing through the year. Our record does not indicate how well we actually did. 7 of our 11 games were decided by 2 goals or less and capping off the season with a 5 to 1 victory over Tupelo Christian shows how much we came together in the end. If everyone sticks together we have a great shot for next year, returning all 11 starters makes for a strong season to come.
