The St. Joseph Academy soccer team is eager to advance deep into the TAPPS playoffs, just like the school’s teams did in 2015 and 2016.

Those were the years the Bloodhounds made it to the TAPPS Division I state semifinals during back-to-back seasons.

SJA is on course for another deep postseason run in 2019 after Tuesday’s 3-2 overtime win at home against Houston Emory Weiner. It was a second-round playoff win and it took a golden goal by SJA’s David Rodriguez after teammate and goalkeeper Carlos Porras had blocked a penalty kick just two minutes earlier for the Bloodhounds (13-8-1) to earn their trip to the TAPPS Division II quarterfinals.

Rodriguez’s golden goal to end the game came with the score tied at 2 and only 36 seconds left in the first half of OT.
