CMH favored in own soccer tourney

from today's Waukesha Freeman --

WAUKESHA – Host Catholic Memorial will be the defending champion in the 17th annual Laura Moynihan Catholic Memorial Invitational girls soccer tournament Friday and Saturday. “I created the tournament in 1995 to honor my friend, Laura Moynihan, who died of cancer in 1992,” Memorial coach John Burke said.

All three 2010 state champions are in the field. Catholic Memorial beat Brookfield East 1-0 in last year’s championship game and went on to win the Division 2 state title.

The tournament will be played at Uihlein Soccer Park in Milwaukee. Friday’s 5:30 p.m. quarterfinal games have Catholic Memorial playing Verona, Muskego taking on Neenah, Grafton playing Madison West and Milton playing New Holstein.

Competition will resume at 10 a.m. Saturday, with the championship game set for 2:30 p.m. Catholic Memorial is the top-ranked team in Division 2, while Neenah is ranked fifth and Grafton ninth in Division 1. Neenah lost to eventual champion Verona 3-2 in the 2010 Division 1 state semifinals.
