Football SWEEPS!
For the second weekend in a row, all three teams won... in front of alumni!

Last weekend, alumni, parents and friends who made it out to the Alumni Homecoming Game were given a treat, catching a double-overtime win against St. John the Baptist (36-34) - the middle part of a three-game sweep where all of Xavier's football teams emerged victoriously!

Xavier Football Alumni, players, managers, coaches and moderators were invited to pregame festivities before Saturday's Varsity kickoff. A group of graduates from a wide range of years attended to support the Knights, wearing jerseys, jackets and other Xavier gear.

From Tom O'Hara '69:

For the second weekend in a row, all three Xavier football teams were victorious. The Team Formerly Known as the Kaydets...and then the Bruins... edged St. John the Baptist 36-34 in a double-overtime thriller at Aviator Field Saturday night for their second straight win.
The Knights (2-1, 2-2) are now tied with Cardinal Hayes for third place in the Catholic High School Football League's AA-Division. Next up for the 16th Street Kids: undefeated Stepinac (3-0, 4-0) at White Plains Stadium this Saturday night (October 9th) at 7:30 p.m.
Down on the farm, the Xavier Junior Varsity shut out Cardinal Hayes 27-0 in a Saturday morning skirmish in the Bronx to improve to 3-0 in the CHSFL (4-0 overall) and tighten their grip on first place in the AA-Division. Coach Rod Walker's men will have their work cut out for them this weekend, however, when they cross over the Verrazano Narrows to Staten Island to beard the AAA-Division Farrell Lions (2-0, 3-1) in their den. Kickoff is at 10:00 a.m. Saturday morning.
The Fighting Frosh also traveled to the Bronx on business this past Saturday morning, and they achieved their objective as well, blanking the Pilots of Cardinal Spellman 36-0 to improve their record to 3-0. Coach John Kelly's rookies have outscored the opposition 108-33 on their way to the top of the CHSFL's City Division (The league has divided its freshman squads into City and Long Island Divisions for the 2010 season.), but they won't be able to rest on their laurels this weekend when they travel out to  Flushing, Queens, to play the proud Crusaders of Holy Cross High School. Kick off is at 10:00 a.m.
