The Sacred Heart Prep boys' soccer team lost an opportunity to widen its lead in the West Bay Athletic League following a 1-1 deadlock with visiting King's Academy on Wednesday. The match originally was scheduled for the Knights' home field, which was unplayable due to the recent rains. Thus, the Gators had the home field advantage and failed to take advantage of it.

On a day that saw the top four teams in the league all play to a tie, SHP had a chance to open a seven-point lead over second-place Menlo had the Gators won. Instead, Sacred Heart Prep (6-0-1, 9-0-3) has 19 points and a five-point lead.

The Gators, who suffered a tie and loss to King's last season during a 12-1-1 league campaign, fell behind once again when King's converted a penalty kick in the first half. The Gators answered in the 25th minute when Andrew Segre took a bouncing pass from Nicklaus Salzman and beat the onrushing goalie to the ball, knocking it past him for the tie.

While the Gators had to settle for the tie, they also came up with a big loss as sophomore scoring standout Isaac Polkinhorne received a yellow card and then a red for arguing a call. He'll have to sit out Friday's important home match against second-place Menlo at 2:45 p.m. The Knights are still looking for their first-ever win over the Gators.
