Soccer: St. Paul’s boys, Mandeville girls with impressive wins
If there was any doubt that St. Paul’s could compete with the best teams in the country on the pitch, the Wolves once again proved that they are worthy of that distinction.
Top-ranked and four-time defending Division I state champion St. Paul’s finished the Lotto Showcase in San Clemente, California in impressive fashion, whipping Buchanan High of Clovia, California 3-0 Saturday afternoon.
Jack Bonaldi, James Bryant and Justin Savoie each scored a goal for the Wolves.
St. Paul’s completed the tournament 2-1 with the only loss coming on penalty kicks to Paramount High of California 5-4 after playing to a scoreless tie on Thursday. On Friday, the Wolves were impressive in a 2-0 victory over Watsonville High of California.
Colin Moser and Bryant scored goals for the Wolves (9-1).
St. Paul’s returns to action next Thursday at Lakeshore at 7 p.m.
In girls action, second-ranked Mandeville (Division I) remained unbeaten with a 2-1 win over St. Thomas More in Lafayette. The Cougars entered play as the top-ranked team in Division II
Annalise Mann had a goal and an assist for the Lady Skippers while Macayla Bass added a goal. Mandeville led 2-0 and held off the Cougars for the victory to improve to 11-0.
Mandeville returns to action Wednesday at 5 p.m. at Central Lafourche.
