The Pirates head for a rematch with Hazelwood Central in the state soccer playoffs Tuesday.
In the games Pattonville High School's girls soccer team has lost this season, the team and the Pirates' head coach came to a conclusion. While it may sound cliche, they weren't coming out ready to play. "We all kind of sat down, we had a talk, that was one of the things we needed to fix, and looks like we fixed it," coach Tom Iffrig said Friday night, after Pattonville defeated Parkway Central 3-0 to take home the school's fifth straight district title. Hitting the field ready to play meant winning the first five minutes of the game and Pattonville did just that. Iffrig told his club afterward that the team was on fire. "We came out and misjudged the first ball that came to our backs and let 22 (Ashanti Carey) get in behind us," Parkway …

The Vikings had a nip and tuck game vs. the rival Colts Monday afternoon, with a birth in the district final on the line.
One hit. That's all it took for Parkway North to get what the Vikings needed to advance past Parkway Central in a district semifinal played at North Monday afternoon. With a man on in the first inning, Colt starter Brian Hillhouse struck out Parkway North's Jon Shanker, but Central could not complete the putout at first base when the ball escaped the cather. North's Garrett Taylor followed that up with a RBI double, the only Viking hit of the game, scoring two runs. An errant throw on a double play conversion plated a third run to back Sophomore starter Joey Reeves. He'd need every one of those runs as Hillhouse shut down the Vikings for the remainder of the game. Reeves worked out of jams throughout the game, except for a Zack Lazenby …

Junior Jordan Barnett was the game-high scorer with 25 points.
The Hot Read: In the team's first game back on the court since CBC was humbled by De Smet Jesuit at home on Friday, the Cadets shook off some early play that suggested a repeat performance could be in store, dispatching an upset-minded Parkway Central squad 70-50 in a boys district semifinal Tuesday night. Jordan Barnett scored 25 to lead the way for CBC (20-7). Pat McCaw added 15 and Zach Fischer had 14 for the Cadets. Parkway Central (15-14) was led by Nathan Biggs' 17 in defeat. The Cadets boast a junior class that is the envy of college recruiters around the country, but early on, CBC turnovers, combined with Parkway Central's ability to use back door cuts and the rim for protection on layups against CBC's interior strength kept the …

The Chaminade Red Devils, who were ranked as high as number 2 in the country a few weeks ago, are back on a two game win streak for the first time in roughly two weeks following a 4-2 win Tuesday over visiting Parkway Central. Chaminade, which fell to Sacramento Jesuit and tied South Kent (CT) last week in a matchup of national-level programs, defeated John Burroughs 1-0 Monday before hosting the Colts. "Every time we step on the field no matter who we play, they’re going to give us their best shot, and that’s what we want.
