The La Salle Explorers’ triumphed Oct. 29 over a Roman Catholic team that was defending last year’s Philadelphia Catholic League boys soccer title. Both La Salle and Roman headed into the championship game undefeated during the regular league season. Several weeks earlier, La Salle (9-0-2) and Roman (8-0-3) had tied their game, 2-2, thus establishing a well-anticipated event. The Explorers scored two goals early in the first half leading to a 2-1 win. Read more here. (Photos by Sarah Webb)
Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
