Lady Flashes warm up for MAIS playoffs with win on senior night

Published 1:34 pm Friday, September 29, 2023

A slow first half gave way to a flood of goals in the second, and St. Aloysius wound up with a one-sided victory in its warm-up for the MAIS girls’ soccer playoffs.

Seventh-grader Sarah Smith scored two goals, and seniors Lilli Perniciaro and Grace Windham had one each as the Lady Flashes beat Adams County Christian School 4-0 Thursday at Sports Force Parks.

All four of St. Al’s goals came in the second half. Perniciaro and Windham finally broke the ice — Windham scored on a penalty kick — and Smith scored twice in the last 12 minutes to put away the victory.
