Seven different players scored goals, and Gradon Bourne and Kieran Theriot each had a hat trick as St. Aloysius’ boys’ soccer team crushed Manchester Academy 13-1 Tuesday in their District 3-AAA opener.
Bourne led the Flashes (2-0, 1-0 District 3-AAA) with four goals and one assist, and Theriot had three goals. Justin Ehrghott had one goal and four assists — two of them on goals by Theriot.
Also scoring for the Flashes were Connor Bottin, Luis Angel, Jack Dowe and Reed Bourne.
St. Al led 9-0 at halftime, which allowed coach Scott Mathis to substitute liberally in the second half and give a number of players valuable time on the field.

In their two games so far, the Flashes have outscored their opponents 26-1. Nine different players have scored.
“We’re playing really good defense, controlling the field and the ball very well. I’m very proud to see the boys playing like a team,” Mathis said.
St. Al will play at Madison-Ridgeland Academy, a Class AAAA team, Wednesday at 5:30 p.m.
(G) Warren Central 5, Terry 0

Katelyn Morson, Brittney Palmer and freshman Maddie Watkins had one goal apiece for the Lady Vikes, who outshot Terry 22-4. Nine different players took at least one shot on goal for Warren Central.
(B) Warren Central 3, Terry 0
Braylen Greer scored two goals and set up another, and Warren Central’s boys’ soccer team turned in another stout defensive performance as it beat Terry 3-0 on Tuesday on a foggy pitch at Strickland Field in Bovina.
Warren Central — which is playing its home games in Bovina and is without four players until football season is over — improved its record to 4-0. It has three shutouts and has only allowed one goal so far.
Goal keeper Raymond Rimmey had 10 saves, including eight in the first half, against Terry.
After Terry controlled the action for the first 10 minutes, Hunt Holdiness broke the ice for the Vikings. He knocked in the rebound of a shot by Greer in the 12th minute for the game’s first goal.
Greer scored on a penalty kick in the 31st minute and knocked in a rebound goal in the 60th to give the Vikings some breathing room.
Greer’s penalty kick was one of three Warren Central was awarded in the game, but the only one it made. Terry also lost a player to a hard red card in the 67th minute.
Warren Central outshot Terry 23-3 in the game.
Warren Central will play at Vicksburg on Thursday. The girls’ game begins at 5:30 p.m., and the boys at 7:15.
