Junior midfielder Seth Anderson runs past a Loyola defender in order to gain possession of the ball. JC played Loyola on Oct. 16, and lost 3-1.

The men’s varsity soccer team finished with an in-conference record of 3-12-1, and an overall record of 7-12-1. JV finished with an overall record of 10-8, and fresh-soph finished with a 1-7 record. According to, 12 varsity games were decided by two goals or less, six resulting in losses.

“We struggled with the consistency of our performances. Some days we played great and other days we struggled to put anything together,” varsity head coach James Fendryk said.

Playing in the A conference, they face tough competition. In their final two games they faced Archbishop Curley and nationally ranked McDonough who have overall records of 15-8 and 19-0-1 respectively.

To make it to the playoffs the team would’ve had to beat both teams. On Oct. 29 they lost to McDonough 5-1, eliminating them from playoff contention.

“Struggling has made us closer as a family and help[ed] us grow up as individuals. I’ve learned a lot this season about myself and my teammates. It is disappointing we are putting everything together so late in the season, but it has been a fun four years,” senior captain and center back Jake Dengler said.

On Sept. 25 against Mount Saint Joseph, junior midfielder Franco Caltabiano went up for a head ball and landed on his arm, snapping the bone. Caltabiano was a key player for the team and his on-field presence was missed.

According to Dengler, “many of the loses have been from little mistakes at the crucial points in games.”

“The season has been one of the most competitive in recent years, as games could have gone either way and many contests being determined by a single goal,” Fendryk said.
