Second Flame win for St. Isidore sixth-graders

St. Isidores' sixth-grade boys for the second year in a row won the Flame tournament, which is sponsored by the San Francisco Fire Department in historic Kezar stadium. Sixteen CYO (Catholic Youth Organization) teams participated. Games were played on separate days in December and a team had to win four games to win the championship.

St. Isidore beat Holy Name, 33-15; St. Francis, 38-23; St. Joan of Arc, 31-22, in the semifinals; and, in the championship game, prevailed 44-20 against St. Anselmo.

Team members are Christian Fuca, Mitchell Allan, Tyler Watson, Nick Bartenetti, David Klop, JT Marcinkowski, Dylan Dewalt, Julian Corpus, Riley Moore and Matthew Eckermann, coached by Joe Fuca with assistant coaches John Corpus and Steve Marcinkowski. Each player was personally awarded a first-place plaque by the San Francisco Fire Battalion Chief Skip Olsen.
