Girls Soccer: Drew 3, Urban 2

The Blues (10-1-1, 5-1-1) jumped out to a 2-0 lead and appeared to be set for a repeat performance of their 5-0 win over the Dragons (3-9-2, 1-5-1) in March, but Drew junior captain Avalon Qian drew and scored a penalty kick in the 32nd minute to cut the lead in half. Qian then assisted on a goal by junior Talia Cuddeback to equalize in the 57th minute and junior Shana Gabow put the Dragons up for good with a goal in the 65th minute, scoring on a loose ball after a corner kick. The loss ends Urban’s 11-game unbeaten streak this season, in which, the Blues had outscored opponents 48-0.

Girls Soccer: Lowell 6, Jordan 0

The Cardinals (17-2-1, 13-0) not only extended the distance between themselves and the rest of the Academic Athletic Association with a win over the Jaguars (2-10-1 in AAA), but continued a 17-game shutout streak. Freshman Joanna You led Lowell with two goals, and Kayla McCord, Jenny Kallenburg, Jillian Doherty and Mikela Waldman added solo goals.

Boys Tennis: St. Lawrence 3, Jewish Community 3

The Wolves (0-4) got the closest they have ever been to a victory in their first season of varsity competition, but lost in a tiebreaker to the Celtics. Jewish Community senior captain Eric Temkin improved his singles record to 4-0 with a 6-1, 6-3 win and teamed up with Jessica Berman to win a doubles match 8-2. Another doubles combo of Jake Rosenberg and Gab Ban-Jakov also won a match 8-4.

Girls Soccer: Mission 5, Wallenberg 0

With only a week left in the regular season, the third-place Bears (7-4-1 in AAA) kept pace with Lincoln and Galileo to stay within striking distance of the final playoff spot in the AAA’s Heinline Division. Astrid Rivera led the Bears with two goals and an assist, Yessenia Aguilar added a goal and two assists, and Claudia Aguilar scored a goal and tallied two assists.

Girls Soccer: Jewish Community 7, Emery 3

Jewish Community senior Sophie Navarro already showed she can light up the scoreboard on the basketball court and showed she can do the same on the soccer field in the Wolves (2-2-1) lopsided win on Thursday. Navarro scored four goals and recorded two assists, and Elana Fogel, Sophia Gluck and Jordan Dong also added goals.

    drew shouldnt have beat urban. the ref gave them a penalty for nothing.
    also, why start covering them as soon as they loose? they have had so great games this season and have put so much effort in.

    • jbalan says:

      Drew sent in the info for the Prep Wrapup, that’s how it works. If Urban would have sent info in for their 10 wins, there would have been something in the wrapup after every one of them.

    Urban underestimated Drew, that’s why they lost. Love it! It’s like the San Jose Earthquakes beating Real Madrid.

    Congrats to the Dragons. We at Urban do not make excuses when we lose games. We were defeated by a hungry Drew team and we look to learn from our defeat, continue to improve in practice and challenge ourselves in our remaining league matches and hopefully in the North Coast Section Tournament. Again, hats off to the Drew players and coaches on a well played game and win.

      Thanks for this comment. Watching the game was very disturbing, and I don’t know what good lessons the Urban students. or for that matter, the Drew students can learn from this game. Perhaps life is unfair, and integrity is more important than winning? I can say that the Urban players played a beautiful game, with some beautiful footwork! With this kind of refereeing, I am not sure that Urban could have won this game had they been the real Real Madrid (yes this is hyperbole) . I am very impressed by the Director of Athletics comment. It shows very good character and having that example, will serve the Urban students well! This was the first time I have watched high school soccer, and the level of playing was very impressive from both teams!

    isnt it a bit shady when athletic directors read/respond to sanfran preps……

  5. Lisa B says:

    You win some, you lose some! :-)

    Two great schools and healthy competition.

  6. Lowell House says:

    @JJ Earthquakes beating Real Madrid? That’s more than a little generous to both teams.

    • kbare says:

      I’m sure JJ ment in in context, not meaning at all that the teams are as good as professional teams, JJ was just trying to give us something to relate to.

    Don’t know if you guys would ever want to use it, but one of the parents for the Urban girls soccer team takes photos of every game (and some other urban sports from time to time)
    The photos from this season are here: http://johnhefti.com/f649792817
