XCP sloshes to 1-0 soccer win over Pinnacle

Senior midfielder Karla Alvarado scored a first-half goal and sophomore goalkeeper Katie Harris got her second straight shutout on Tuesday night (Jan. 15) as Xavier Prep’s soccer team defeated Phoenix Pinnacle 1-0 at a rain-soaked Petznick Field.

Loyal spectators huddled wherever they could to stay as dry as possible.

Xavier (8-3-1) will return to action on Jan. 25 with a contest at Chandler High.
