Another girls soccer tie for SH Prep; M-A, Paly both win

Sacred Heart Prep and visiting Los Altos (1-3-1) played to a 1-1 girls soccer tie in the second game of the Firebird Invitational on Tuesday.

Freshman Sydney Adas gave the Gators a 1-0 lead with an assist from Elle Lessing but the Eagles scored less than two minutes later on a breakaway.

In four matches thus far, three have ended in a 1-1 tie for SH Prep, which meets Valley Christian at 9:45 a.m. Saturday in the third match of the tournament.

The Gators (0-1-3) had several nice chances in the final minutes, with Adas slamming one off the post and junior Megan Tinsley forcing a nice save by the Los Altos keeper.

Senior Nikki Molumphy contributed several crossing passes into the middle and Tinsley's free kick nearly broke the tie.
