Soccer roundup: St. Al takes two at tournament, WC rolls past Murrah

St. Aloysius’ boys’ soccer team showed no rust at all after a month off.

Cooper Madison scored four goals total, while John Ellis Montgomery, Reed Bourne, Wyatt Teague and Dillon Chambers had two apiece as the Flashes cruised to two wins Saturday at the Greenville-St. Joseph Soccer Tournament.

Seven players scored in the Flashes’ first game, a 9-1 rout of Riverside.

Teague and Chambers scored two goals apiece, while Madison and Bourne had one. Corbin Burroughs, J.R. McCain and Montgomery each had a goal and an assist. Robert Lee, Sam Hall and Dalton Windham had assists.

In the Flashes’ second game, they beat Delta Streets 4-2 behind three goals from Madison and one from Bourne.

Bourne, Montgomery and Burroughs each had one assist.

It was St. Al’s first game since mid-December. The month off was caused first by a COVID-19 outbreak at the school, and then a scheduled layoff for the Christmas break. The Flashes improved to 5-0 and will next play Monday at 5 p.m., at home against Bayou Academy.
