THE WOODLANDS, TX -- Dragon Boys Soccer Takes Tough Games To Final Minutes.

Results from the week of January 17, 2022

VARSITY BOYS SOCCER

1/18 vs Kinkaid* • 3-2 W

Goals by Will Young, Danny Williams, Tanure Ewherido

1/21 at St. John’s* • 2-2 Tie

Goals by Danny Williams and Will Young

Coach Bryan Sherman: The team played two tough games this week, winning against Kinkaid in the last few minutes, and also giving up a goal to St. John’s to tie in the last few minutes, which is a bit disappointing. We are still trying to figure out who we are as a team but we are getting decent results while not playing our best soccer. Hopefully we can continue improving as the season progresses and start to play the soccer we are capable of.

Next up for Dragon Boys Soccer:

January 25 vs HCYA, 7 p.m.

January 28 vs St. Stephen’s*, 7 p.m.

February 1 at Houston Christian*, 7 p.m.

February 4 vs. St. Andrew’s Episcopal*, 6 p.m. senior night

VARSITY GIRLS SOCCER

1/18 vs Kinkaid • 5-0 L

Coach Amber Clevenger: It was a loss to a good team.

1/21 at St. John’s* • 7-0 L

Coach Amber Clevenger: We played much better during this game. This was senior night for St. John’s and they will graduate 12 seniors who have played varsity for four years. They are an amazing team and I felt good about what we were able to do against such a talented team.

Next up for Dragon Girls Soccer:

January 27 at Awty*, 6 p.m.

January 28 vs St. Stephen’s*, 5 p.m.

February 1 at Houston Christian*, 5 p.m.

VARSITY BOYS BASKETBALL

1/18 vs Kinkaid* • 59-53 L

1/21 at St John’s* • 63-35 L

Coach Matthew Wilson: Difficult week for the Dragons as we faced SPC-rivals Kinkaid and St. John’s. We battled hard in both games and did some great things defensively, we just couldn’t quite find the bottom of the net. We look forward to bouncing back this week with a non-conference tilt against St. Francis Tuesday evening. We will follow that up with a home game against St. Stephen’s on Friday evening.

Next up for Dragon Boys Basketball:

VARSITY SWIMMING & DIVING

1/22 at John Cooper-St. John’s Sprint Meet, Westfield High School

Coach Sara Bany: Our meet this weekend was fast and fun. The meet was unscored and the purpose was to swim short events and gather information for our SPC relays. The swimmers enjoyed the shorter races and fast pace of the meet and even commented that this was their “favorite Saturday morning practice.” We have one more meet this weekend as we prepare for SPC and then all of our focus will be on fine-tuning our races and strategy.

Next up for Dragon Swimming:

January 29 at SPC South Zone, UH Campus Recreation Center

February 11 at SPC Championships, Arlington ISD Athletic Complex
