St. Al soccer earns MAIS playoff berth

St. Aloysius’ soccer team snapped out of its offensive funk and checked off a milestone.

Madelyn Polk scored three goals and Mary Ranager had two as the Lady Flashes beat Central Hinds 5-0 on Wednesday.

The victory secured a berth in the MAIS Class AAA playoffs for St. Al (5-3, 5-2 District 3-AAA), which had scored two goals in its previous two games and lost both.

St. Al will go into the eight-team Class AAA playoff bracket as the No. 2 seed from District 3-AAA. It will face the District 4-AAA champion in the opening round on Tuesday.

Park Place won the district championship after beating St. Al twice over the past two weeks.
