Boys Varsity Soccer

October 12, 2019

The boys varsity soccer team was mentioned in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch on 10.12.19: "Michael Turza knew he could take a chance when it mattered most Saturday. With less than 30 seconds to play, the John Burroughs junior goalkeeper rushed off his line and got just enough of a shot by Clayton senior forward Dillon Flynn to be able to recover and corral the ball as it fluttered near the goal line to preserve a 1-0 boys soccer victory. 'I went up for the ball and I got a little contact on my side and it disoriented me,' Turza said. 'I was lucky that the ball had backspin, so I was able to get to it. Even when the ball was going through, I knew I had guys behind me. It was definitely not just me that came up big.' The last-minute defensive play enabled a 19th-minute goal by junior John Gates to stand up and give the Bombers (13-1, No. 1 in the small-schools rankings) the win in a battle of top-ranked small schools."
