St. X still No. 2 in state football poll

Moeller drops to 15th in Division I

The Cincinnati Enquirer

        St. Xavier remains No.2 behind defending Division I state champion Canton McKinley in the weekly Associated Press football poll. Elder is ranked sixth.

        However, twice beaten Moeller fell from No.8 into a tie for 15th with Huber Heights Wayne after losing to Bethlehem Catholic last Saturday.

        In Division II, unbeaten Edgewood moved up two spots to No.5. McNicholas also advanced, from eighth to sixth.

        Purcell Marian is the only Cincinnati-area team ranked in Division III. The Cavaliers dropped from No.7 to No.8 despite a 26-13 victory over Badin last Friday.

        Even with a 61-7 win last week, Germantown Valley View dropped from No.1 to No.4 in Division IV, and Badin dropped out of the top 10. Wyoming moved up one spot to No.7.

        There were no local teams ranked in the top 10 in divisions V or VI.

        GIRLS SOCCER: Seton scored two goals in a three-minute span in the second half, giving the Saints a 2-1 victory over the McAuley Mohawks.

        “McAuley scored first, but I wasn't worried because we were dictating the pace and playing well,” Seton coach Dan Donovan said. “I knew if we kept our composure, we'd be fine.”

        Less than 30 seconds after Stacey Rust scored for McAuley, Kelly Reilly countered for Seton to tie the game at 1-1 with 17:56 remaining.

        With 15:01 remaining, Reilly headed in a corner kick for the game winner.

        The Saints are 6-2-1 overall and first in the GGCL with a 4-1 record.

        BOYS SOCCER: The Loveland Tigers have won eight consecutive games for the first time after getting two goals by Rob Clark in a 6-0 victory over Norwood.

        BOYS GOLF: The off-and-on Elder team was on Wednesday, shooting 325 to win the LaSalle Invitational at Shaker Run. Oak Hills was second at 326.

        Medalist honors went to Kevin Vollmer of Oak Hills with a three-over-par 75.

        Elder was led by Brian Hartoin with a 78.

        GIRLS GOLF: St. Ursula took another step toward winning the Girls Greater Cincinnati League championship with a 157-168 victory over Ursuline.

        Three Bulldog golfers broke 40 on the front nine at Reeves, with Jane Wurzelbacher taking medalist honors with a two-under-par 36. St. Ursula is 6-0 in league play.
