CK Royals New York City Champions

The Christ the King (CK) Lady Royals girls soccer team did it again. CK beat Saint Joe's by the Sea of Staten Island by a score of 2-0 to win the New York CIty Title for the third time in six years. A week after winning the Brooklyn/Queens Title, the lady royals used that momentum to capture another City title. The game was a tale of two halves, where the Staten Island champions controlled the first half and the Brooklyn/Queens Champions controlled the second. St. Joe's created a couple of chances in the first half, but they were neutralized by the CK keeper sophomore Sara Villacres in the waning minutes of the first half. In the second half, junior Malena Arevalo gave the royals a great boost of the bench at the striker position and that led to CK controlling the rest of the game. Freshman Joanna Perez tallied the first goal of the game after recieving a cross from the right wing assisted by Arevalo. CK continued to press and sophomore Diana Rosendo almost doubled the score from inside the 18 yard box, but her shot was saved by the keeper. Sophomore Maya Marchan was tripped 25 yards away from the St. Joe's goal and Freshman Jaiden Vera traslated the free kick into a goal from a direct free kick in the 36th minute of the second half to put the game away. 

Next the royals play Saint Anthony's High School from Long Island for the New York State Semifinals at College of Staten Island on November 10 at 1:00 O'Clock.
