Central Catholic Soccer earned the 7th star on their crest Saturday the 24th at Waco ISD Stadium as they defeated Houston St. Thomas 1-0 for the TAPPS Boys Division 1 state soccer championship.
During the scoreless first half of play, the game was called by the TAPPS officials because of lightning in the area, but play continued with the all clear. After a few minutes into the second half, and a number of impressive shots on goal, it was Junior Angel Bacho who was able to finally get the ball past the stingy St. Thomas goalie, and put the ball into the net for the game’s only score. A dominating Central defense kept the St. Thomas attempts at shots on goal to a minimum during the entire match.
Coach Cartee summed up the boy’s  performance, saying this: “Collectively, we had an outstanding team performance, and every player had a great individual performance.  The boys did a great job of executing the game plan.  We took complete control of the game from the start and maintained our dominance throughout the entire game.  The boys showcased their talent and teamwork, and they proved that we were beyond doubt the best team in the state this year.”
Central Soccer’s record gets more impressive as time progresses. During the last 12 years. their overall record of performance looks like this:
Back-to-back state champions
3 state championships in the past 5 years
6 state championships in the past 12 years
7 state championships overall
Senior and Team Captain Rob Smith shared these comments when asked what being on this CCHS soccer team  has meant to him: “I’m so blessed to have been a part of such a great team, and it was an honor to defend this crest and add to the legacy of excellence of Central Catholic.” Rob was also asked to share the most important part of the experience as a graduating Senior, and as captain of the team. He had this to say: “It’s easy to get to the top, but staying there is the hard part. Every team we faced played their best against us because of what we accomplished last season. We had to be excellent in every game. The whole team made many sacrifices for us to reach this goal, so our victory in the state final was glorious for all of us.”
Congratulations to this capable and committed team, its coaches, and all of its supporters, students, parents, and family who were all part of this amazing accomplishment again this year.
