SHP boys a winner in soccer; Priory girls win in basketball

Ethan Veghte scored a goal and assisted on the other as Sacred Heart Prep beat host Palo Alto 2-0 in a non-league boys soccer match Wednesday.

Tristan Mischke-Reeds also scored for the Gators (3-0-1), who travel to play Carlmont at 4 p.m. Friday in a non-league affair.

Liam Johnson assisted on Veghte’s goal, giving him four assists in his last two games.

Sacred Heart Prep has yet to allow a goal this season and owns a scoring margin of 16-0. The Gators were also 3-0-1 after four matches last year, though their scoring margin was a modest 14-4 by comparison.

Palo Alto (0-2-2) has been getting excellent defensive play but is having trouble finding the back of the net. The Vikings have allowed six goals but have managed to score three.
