The St. Mary’s girls soccer team picked up a Catholic Central League win Saturday afternoon, defeating Matignon 4-0 at St. John’s Prep, on an emotional afternoon for coach Jim Foley and his daughter, Jenna.
Kayla Demers scored three goals and Jenna Foley added one. Riley Lynch helped set up a big chunk of those scores with three assists. Goalie Eliza Brown made three saves for the shutout victory in net.
“It was a great team effort,” Jim Foley said. “It was a long day. My mother-in-law passed away earlier (Saturday). It was good to see Jenna score a goal for her grandmother. That was great for us.”
St. Mary’s improved to 4-2 and hosts Williams Monday afternoon (4) at Manning Field.
