It was Santa Fe Prep-Monte del Sol day on the soccer field and on the volleyball court.
It was even on the pitch, with the Dragon boys edging the Griffins, 2-1, and the Prep girls shutting down Monte del Sol, 10-0.
In the boy’s match at Sun Mountain Field, Moises Cerda scored both goals for the Dragons, one in each half to advance the team to 3-1-1 and drop Prep to 1-5. Cerda’s second goal broke the 1-1 tie.
The Griffin girls are now 4-1, also winning on their home field and holding a 9-0 halftime lead. Senior Lynn Robey scored three times for the hat trick as the young Monte del Sol side fell to 0-8.
On the volleyball match at the Prep gymnasium, the Griffins swept all three sets, 25-9, 25-4, 25-13 to improve to 2-4. Prep served well, and with starting middle hitter Cocoa Randolph sidelined with an injury, Aubrianna Talacihy took her place and head coach Kiran Bhatka credited her for a good performance.
In boy’s soccer at the Christian Brothers Athletic Complex, visiting Capital came away with a 3-1 victory to move it over .500 at 4-3. The Horsemen dropped to 5-3-1. St. Michael’s took the early lead on senior Justice Johnson’s goal off a direct kick, but the Jaguars came away with the other goals, and while ahead 2-1, added the insurance goal in the final minute.
