Redemptoris Mater seminary wins first seminarian soccer series

By Catholic News Service

ROME(CNS)-- The soccer team representing Redemptoris Mater seminary won the first Clericus Cup, a championship series exclusively for priests and seminarians studying in Rome.

The May 26 final pitted Redemptoris Mater, the Neocatechumenal Way's Rome seminary, against Pontifical Lateran University.

In nine games no team had managed to get a goal past the Neocatechumenal team, which ended the season undefeated. The 10th and final game of the series was no exception.

The only goal scored during the final game was by Redemptoris Mater's Giacomo Piermarini on a penalty kick.

In early May the Neocatechumenal team knocked the Pontifical North American College's Martyrs out of the playoffs.

The Clericus Cup tournament was launched in late February; 16 teams from various seminaries and pontifical universities played against each other.
