St. Al soccer shuts out Manchester

Published 11:24 am Thursday, August 31, 2023

A fortuitous bounce and strong defensive effort helped St. Aloysius’ soccer team earn a victory.

Lilli Perniciaro’s shot in the 33rd minute deflected off of a Manchester Academy player and into the net, and it stood up as the only goal as St. Al won 1-0 on Wednesday.

Keeper Sarah Smith had six saves and she and her defenders posted their third shutout of the season.
