Clean slates were the order of the day on Friday as three of the four SDSSAA Girls Soccer quarter-final matches would see shutouts recorded.
The second seeded St Charles College Cardinals grounded the Lasalle Lancers 4-0 on goals from Erika MacNeil, Madison Hollohan, Farrah Farstad and Claudia Castellanos while two-sport keeper Zoe Rienguette stopped all that came her way.
The third seeded Lo-Ellen Park Knights followed a similar M.O., downing the Lockerby Vikings 2-0 on goals from Sophia Oommen and Aiden Panella and a shutout from Madina Jebreen.
Goaltender C.J. Pardy helped lift her team to a mild upset as the Bishop Carter Gators (#5) bounced the Confederation Chargers (#4) by that identical 2-0 score.
Ella Caissie and Jersey McMahon found the back of the net for BAC who got past one of their Valley East rivals only to now run smack dab into another next Friday in semi-final action.
The defending champion Horizon Aigles from Val Caron did not maintain the goose-egg but did manage to dispose of the Collège Notre-Dame Alouettes quite comfortably, posting a 4-1 victory yesterday.
First half goals by Alexis Brabant, Paige Cornthwaite, Olivia Hinich and Kiara Levac allowed the Aigles to slow things down in the second half as CND could only muster a single goal off the foot of captain Dea Begic.
Tuesday sees a full slate of four games in SDSSAA Premier Boys action, with the quarter-finals dominating the schedule on the turf at the James Jerome Sports Complex with the final four on both sides (boys and girls) set to meet up on Friday.
