On Monday the BFS Girls Varsity Volleyball Team lost 3-2 (25-23, 25-23, 20-26, 19-25, 7-15) to St. Ann’s in the ACIS Finals at St. Francis College. The girls fought hard, putting pressure on St Ann’s, to take the first 2 sets, behind strong serving and strong offense from the middle. St Ann’s recovered, showed great poise, and ended up winning the next 3 sets in a row. Even though we got 2nd place, the girls have shown great improvement since the first time we faced them earlier in the season. Everyone is more confident, consistent, and more aggressive when playing the ball. This match was dictated by whoever gained early momentum. It was a great experience ahead of our next challenge, the NYSAIS tournament tomorrow versus Spence at Convent Sacred Heart at 5:00pm. Blue Pride Runs Deep, Friends Forever!!

The BFS MS Boys Soccer Team defeated Friends Seminary 3-2 at Brooklyn Bridge Park. The team turned the game around late to once agin pick up the victory. The game was very closely fought as both teams played some excellent passing soccer, with chances being created at both ends. BFS goalie Patrick D. made some excellent saves throughout the game to keep the score level. BFS created some chances of their own, and Rafe F. was unlucky to see his shot drift wide of the far post. BFS found the breakthrough just before halftime. A long ball forward from Finn S. was flicked on by Miles J-P. into the path of Miles B. who ran clear of the defense and finished calmly to give BFS a halftime lead. Friends Seminary, with a point to prove, struck back moments into the second half to level the score. 15 minutes later, they were 2-1 up after BFS failed to deal with an in-swinging corner. However, just when it looked like BFS were out of ideas, they somehow managed to turn the game on its head. They quickly changed from defense to attack, and Miles B. repaid Miles J-P. for his earlier assist by setting him up to score from a narrow angle. 5 minutes from the end, Gabe D. picked up a clearance on the the edge of the Friends Seminary penalty area and curled in a perfect long range shot to hand BFS a dramatic victory. BFS defended well in the final minutes to ensure another excellent win. Way to go team. Blue Pride!!
