Soccer: Bergen Catholic 9, Lyndhurst 1

Quite frankly, it would be easier to tell you who didn’t score for Bergen Catholic on Sunday. That being said, I’ll try to get to everyone. I apologize in advance if I miss something or someone.

Cole Bosch and Miles Franklyn scored twice; additionally, Henry Mouawad and Cavan Burke netted their first goals of the season in a 9-1 victory for the Crusaders on Sunday. The real star of the show, though, was senior Joe Barile, who netted a hat trick with all three of his goals coming in the second half.

As of today, Bosch leads the team with 11 goals, Franklyn trails closely behind with nine, and Barile is third on the team with four. Bergen is now 9-0 on the season; their next game is tomorrow at Northern Highlands. On Saturday, the Crusaders meet with arch-rival Don Bosco at home. And the last time Bergen played Bosco, Franklyn got on SportsCenter.

We’ll see how the final stretch of the season goes for the Big North United Division leaders.

Catching Up on Some Things…

My apologies in advance; I’ve had a really busy week and haven’t really had time to write more of these. Anyway, I felt like I absolutely needed to write this, as it’s been a pretty big deal around my school.

Bergen Catholic senior Miles Franklyn, one of the stars of the Crusaders’ still- undefeated soccer team, appeared on SportsCenter’s Top Ten Plays twice in the span of a week thanks to two of the most incredible goals you’ll ever see. I’m attaching both of them here for you to see; the first is from last Monday night and the second is from September 20.

So yeah, I just wanted to get that out there in case you didn’t already know. Franklyn is headed to Syracuse next season, and it looks like the Orange will be getting a good one.
