FATHER MCGIVNEY 4, ALTON 2

The Griffins were mainly unaffected by a couple of days of thunderstorms and were one of the few area teams to get in three games in the first week of play.

Father McGivney took on the Alton Redbirds in Metro Cup action at Althoff Catholic High School on Saturday afternoon.

After going down 1-0 early on in just the 10th minute, the Griffins scored four straight to secure the win.

Tayen Orr scored for Alton after a long throw-in that led to a mad scramble inside the six-yard box. The ball eventually found Orr who put it in to take the lead.

Just over 15 minutes later Carissa Speight tied the game up when she buried a penalty kick in the 26th minute. Speight went right as Alton goalkeeper Jillian Dwiggins couldn't do much about it. Dwiggins ended up playing the first half in goal then Karen Lewis took over in the second.

Before the half was up, McGivney would have its lead. In the 37th minute, Devin Ellis let a shot go from some 30-plus yards out that dipped with the wind and went in to take a 2-1 lead into halftime.

Elena Rybak had a nice assist to Emerson Isringhausen in the 44th minute to go ahead 3-1. Rybak did most of the work out on the left wing when she used her speed to beat a defender, cut in toward goal, and lay a perfect pass across the six-yard box to Isringhausen.

In the 59th minute, Siena Strehl scored a header directly from Rachel Kretzer's corner kick to make it 4-1.

Alton did get a consolation goal in the 67th minute, but the Redbirds went on to their second straight loss to open the season after a 6-1 setback against Columbia. Alton plays at home on Thursday, March 21 against Belleville West.

McGivney improves to 2-1 on the season and will play next on Monday, March 18 against Mater Dei.
