Moreau Catholic High School's Lady Mariners soccer team dropped a heartbreaker to the girls of American High School last week, 2-0. Moreau goalkeeper Katie Pruneda shut down the Eagle attack in the first half, however American found the net in the second half. The Eagles answered quickly scoring the game's only scores at the 60-and 63-minute-marks.
Even though they were defeated, Moreau still managed to put more shots on net than American, 10-9. The loss puts the Lady Mariners at a 2-2 mark for the season. Moreau will try to improve their record when they hit the road and play Acalanes High School, Wednesday, Dec. 2, at 6 p.m.
Moreau also saw their boys team lose, 3-0, to Irvington High School. The loss puts the Mariners at 0-2 for the season. Their next match will be a nonconference game at home against St. Joseph High School on Monday, Dec. 7.
In other HAAL action, the girls of Hayward High School fell short to Washington High School, 1-0. The Farmers gave up the score late in the second half and were not able to mount a comeback. Hayward's record is now 0-2 after the loss.
In their first match of the year, the boys from Mt. Eden High School lost at the feet of James Logan High School, 1-0. It doesn't get any easier for the Monarchs as their next match will be against a strong Campolindo High School, who opened their season with a 7-0 demolishing of American.
The Lady Monarchs shared the same fate as their male counterparts when they were handed defeat in a 1-0 loss to Irvington. Their next game will be a Tuesday, Dec. 8, showdown in Concord with Ygnacio Valley High School.
