St. Mary's boys stay unbeaten

ASHLAND — St. Mary's got tested in a boys nonconference soccer match Thursday at Ashland Middle School.

Sacramento Country Day School led at halftime, but the unbeaten Crusaders rallied for a 3-1 victory.

The Cavaliers held a 1-0 halftime advantage on a penalty kick about midway through the first half.

"We came out flat today," St. Mary's coach Paul Coughlin said. "We were a little worn out from the day before."

St. Mary's (6-0-1, 2-0 Dist. 3) was coming off a tough road win against Creswell.

Sophomore striker Keenan Grant evened the score about 10 minutes into the second half on a strong individual effort. Grant busted up the middle past two Cavalier defenders and boomed a shot inside the near post from about six yards out.

Junior midfielder Bay Gross tallied the next two goals for St. Mary's.
