High school sports roundup: St. Al soccer wins second in a row; PCA softball falls

After an early-season slump, the St. Aloysius girls’ soccer team is now on a winning streak.
Bree Butler and Elizabeth Theriot scored two goals apiece, while Madi Mathews added another to lead the Lady Flashes to a 7-1 victory over Central Hinds on Monday.

Mathews also led a solid defensive effort for St. Al (3-4), which has won two consecutive games after dropping four of its first five. It has allowed one goal in the two wins.

St. Al’s next game is on Sept. 21, at Washington School. It must win that game, as well as another district game against Bayou Academy at home on Sept. 24, to have a chance at reaching the MAIS playoffs.

Katie Tillman went 2-for-3 with a triple and two runs scored for PCA (3-15-1), while Olivia Masterson doubled, drove in a run and scored two. Raegan Thornell was 4-for-4 with one RBI, and Emily Phillipson had two hits and two RBIs.
