Varsity Boys Soccer
Sacred Heart Prep 1, Gilroy 0
Date of competition: Wednesday, February 27, 2013
The No. 5-seeded Sacred Heart Prep boys' soccer team got a goal from senior Brendan Spillane in the first half and made it stand up for a 1-0 victory over host and No. 9 seed and host Gilroy in a Central Coast Section Division III semifinal on Wednesday night. The Gators (18-2-3) will face No. 10 Menlo School (15-5-3) in the title match Saturday at Oak Grove High in San Jose at 3 p.m.
This will be the Gators' 15th appearance in a CCS title match, but only the first since they left the fall playoffs for the winter after the 2007 season. Since beginning play in the WBAL in 2008-09, SHP had failed to win a section match until this season. The Gators won seven CCS titles in the fall and finished second seven other times. SHP coach Armando del Rio will be in his third title match, the two previous as a player in 1999 and 2000.
