Prep boys’ soccer: St. Joseph could be factor in 2A again

Normally, a fourth-place team would not be expected to come close to a first-place club in the Utah boys’ high school soccer tournament.

But St. Joseph did just that earlier this week, knocking first-place Manti out of the tournament on the Templars’ home field in a 2-2 game decided by a 4-1 shootout in favor of the Jays.

Considering the state tournament games between these two teams the past two years, however, St. Joseph’s victory should not have been a major surprise. Their tournament games have been memorable.

In 2012, Manti defeated St. Joseph 2-1 in the Class 2A championship game. Last year, the Templars knocked the Jays out of the tournament in a semifinal shootout.

St. Joseph always is around come state tournament time. The Ogden-based Catholic school lost in the 2011 state championship game. The Jays will have to advance on the road this year, though. Their next game is Saturday at 1 p.m. at Delta.
