Seminarians battle for the Vianney Cup in soccer
This weekend local Roman Catholic seminarians converged on soccer fields in Emmitsburg, Md., for the first-ever Vianney Cup Soccer Tournament.
Sure, the tournament is named for St. John Vianney, the patron saint of parish priests. And sure, the Saturday matches kicked off with mass. But this was serious.
In the first round, Mount St. Mary's University Seminary of Emmitsburg beat St. Mary's Seminary and University of Baltimore, 5 to 3. And Saint Charles Borromeo Seminary of Philadelphia triumphed over Theological College/Catholic University of D.C., 2 to 0.
In the championship game, the Mount beat Saint Charles, 4 to 1. The Vianney Cup will now reside outside the rector's office at Mount St. Mary's until next year.
