Boys Soccer: Lowell 6, O’Connell 0
The two-time defending Academic Athletic Association champion Cardinals (1-0-2, 1-0-0) picked up right where they left off last season against the Boilermakers (0-1-0, 0-1-0) to collect their 39th straight win in league play.
Sophomore Elijah Alperin led the way with two goals, and Lowell got solo scores from Avery Fisher, Luis Hernandez, Freddy Marin and Antonio Torre.
Boys Soccer: Mission 6, Balboa 0
The Bears (4-1-1, 1-0-0) had the most impressive non-league performance of any AAA school and impressed again with a rout of the Bucs (0-1-0, 0-1-0).
Mission senior forward Marco Caballero paced the Bears with three goals, junior Mario Mejia scored two and Aldeir Soto Coronel added another.
Boys Soccer: Lincoln 5, ISA 0
The Mustangs (2-0-0, 1-0-0) have lost a lot of graduating seniors from last season’s squad that fell to Lowell in the AAA championship, but cruised to victory against the Cobras (0-1-0, 0-1-0).
All five Lincoln goals came from different players and all came in the first half. Juan Galvez, Raury Girling, Dennis Dhen, Rory Grant and Felipe Herrera all scored in a span of 24 minutes in the first half.
Boys Soccer: Jordan 1, Marshall 0
After a scoreless first half, the Jaguars (1-2-0, 1-0-0) got their first win of the season behind a goal by Luis Quintanar and held off the Phoenix (0-1-0, 0-1-0) the rest of the way.
Girls Volleyball: Drew 3, Waldorf 0
The Dragons (4-2, 1-0) began their journey in the Bay Counties League Central with a 25-16, 25-21, 25-5 win over the Wolverines.
Drew senior outside hitter Iris Quasevakatini again led the Dragons with eight kills in the lopsided third game. Drew libero Tori Verdan also had five aces in the third game.
Boys Soccer: Drew 2, Gateway 1
In their first game in the BCL Central, the Dragons (2-3, 1-0) immediately made an impression, knocking off the two-time defending league champions.
The Gators (2-5, 0-1) scored first in the 60th minute, but Drew scored two unanswered goals to push ahead. Drew’s Zak Bauke struck first in the 72nd minute and Santiago Martinez followed with the game-winner five minutes later.
