Until Saturday’s 4-2 loss at Mitty, there hadn’t been a stingier girls soccer team in the West Catholic Athletic League than St. Francis High. Posting 10 shutouts over their 15 matches, the Lancers had allowed just 0.53 goals per game on average.
The four goals allowed Saturday were the most St. Francis has surrendered all season, but coach Dawn Hill didn’t seem overly concerned with that. She noted that the Lancers were not at full strength, yet still stayed with the first-place Monarchs most of the way. St. Francis tied the game at 1 early in the second half and trailed 3-2 until Mitty scored an insurance goal with time running out.
