Prep Wrapup is our new feature where we will hopefully provide a broad overview of the previous day’s action. Coaches, to contribute to the Prep Wrapup, please send scores and details the night of the game/event to firstname.lastname@example.org or call our scores line at (415) 251-0918.
Baseball: St. Ignatius 1, St. Francis 0
After a couple of recent bumps in the road, the Wildcats (13-6-1, 7-3-1) showed again on Tuesday that they are still among the West Catholic Athletic League’s best.
St. Ignatius senior ace Collin Monsour pitched a complete game, allowed just five hits and had six strikeouts to hand the Lancers (21-2-1, 9-1-1) their first league loss of the season, and junior outfielder Jack Stinn broke a scoreless tie in the top of the seventh inning with a high-arcing home run to left-center field, off the St. Francis scoreboard.
St. Francis, which is ranked ninth nationally and third in the state my MaxPreps.com, also got a complete game from junior starting pitcher Mark Cardinalli in the loss. Stinn’s home run was just one of four St. Ignatius hits.
Baseball: Stuart Hall 7, Marin Academy 1
Stuart Hall junior starting pitcher Ben Carrasco struck out a career-high 18 batters in a two-hit complete game and allowed just one earned run to keep the Knights (6-4, 3-0) undefeated in Bay Counties League West play.
The left-hander also went 1-for-3 at the plate with two RBIs and junior Daniel Costa went 2-for-4 with two RBIs.
Girls Soccer: Mission 3, Galileo 1
The Lions (6-2-5 in AAA) had a chance to clinch the final playoff spot in the Academic Athletic Association’s Heinline Division, but three first-half goals from the Bears (8-4-1 in AAA) put Mission into second place with a game to play, just two points ahead of Galileo.
Yessenia Aguilar, Jacqueline Cruz-Eligio and Allysson Sanchez all scored for the Bears, and Mission now will be in a position to clinch on Thursday. If Mission beats Lincoln, they are automatically in the postseason, but if the Bears tie or lose and Galileo beats Wallenberg, the Lions will take over the final playoff spot. Mission can also get into the playoffs with a loss to Lincoln and a Galileo tie or loss.
Girls Soccer: Lowell 5, Burton 0
The AAA’s Heinline Division continues to be a dogfight, but the top team in the Rueda Division was decided a long time ago.
The Cardinals (14-0 in AAA) got two goals from junior Alondra Barajas and solo goals from sophomore Mitra Shokat
and freshman Joanna You (one Lowell goal was scored on a Burton own goal).
