Cadets' WCAC girls' soccer run continues

St. John’s got goals from four players and, playing with a lineup finally recovered from the flu and injuries, beat Paul VI, 4-0, on Friday to advance to Sunday’s WCAC girls’ soccer championship.

The Cadets will face Good Counsel (a 4-1 winner over Holy Cross in the other semifinal) at 1 p.m. on Sunday at Maryland SoccerPlex. They are seeking their fourth league title in five years.

After finishing the 2008 season as The Post’s No. 1 team, St. John’s went just 4-10-3 heading into the playoffs, with sophomore standouts Caite Dee (knee) and Allison Clark (leg) sidelined with injuries.

Last Monday “marked the first time this season that we had our whole team together,” said Cadets Coach Colin Lennon, whose squad beat McNamara in the play-in game before downing top-seed O’Connell on penalty kicks in Wednesday’s quarterfinal.

Freshman defender Liz Parks, called up from junior varsity due to the lack of players, has been a key addition, according to Lennon. “The flu cost us more than anything,” said Lennon. “We had to battle to find chemistry with a new team every week.”
