Baseball: Riordan 2, Stuart Hall 0
Perfection doesn’t happen often at any level of baseball, but a San Francisco high schooler experienced it on Tuesday afternoon.
Riordan junior Jorge Navarro threw a perfect game against the defending Bay Counties League West champions, retiring all 21 batters that came to the plate. He struck out six Stuart Hall batters and finished the complete-game shutout on just 97 pitches.
Stuart Hall junior starting pitcher Ben Carrasco did his best to keep the Knights (2-4) in the game and allowed just a single earned run (and one unearned) in five innings pitched. Carrasco struck out nine Riordan batters and allowed five hits, and the Crusaders (9-6) stranded 11 baserunnners.
The Crusaders got both of their runs in the second inning. The first scored on an error after a single from Nick Hovland and the second scored on a bases-loaded hit-by-pitch.
Boys Tennis: Kehillah 6, Jewish Community 1
The Wolves (0-3) are in their first season of varsity competition, but were competitive in all but one match against their rivals from Palo Alto. Senior captain Eric Temkin was the only Jewish Community player to win a match, with a 6-1, 6-1 win over Kehillah’s No. 1 player.
Girls Soccer: Lowell 4, SFI 0
The Cardinals (11-2-1, 8-0-0) continued to roll through the Academic Athletic Association behind goals from Cate Stern, Sophie Pigman, Deedee Pearce and Kayla McCord, but what may be most impressive is that they haven’t allowed a goal in the AAA this season. Lowell only allowed two goals in AAA play last season.
