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.

Paly will look to reverse the trend when Menlo School (2-0-1) visits for a non-league contest at 3:30 p.m. Friday.

The Knights played host Aragon to a draw on Wednesday. Menlo scored once in each half and the Dons responded with a pair in the second half.

Senior Jackson Aldrich scored the opener off a corner kick in the last minute of the first half.

Junior Christian Corcoran added the second midway through the second half following a give-and-go with senior Aaron Morgan.

In another non-league game, host Priory fell to ACE Charter 5-3 in a wild affair. The Panthers (1-2) are off until Jan. 8, when they open West Bay Athletic League play at Sacred Heart Prep. The Cheetahs improved to 4-1-1.
