The New Life Academy girls soccer team looked ahead to the final two games of the season and the section playoffs after Tuesday’s 4-0 loss to St. Paul Academy on Tuesday.

Turnovers did not help the New Life Academy football team in a close 12-7 loss to Providence Academy on the road Friday. The Eagles jumped ahead 7-0 in the first quarter on a quarterback sneak by Adam Busch. Providence Academy responded with a short touchdown run by Jackson Baird in the second quarter. But the Eagles still held a 7-6 lead at halftime after a missed two-point conversion by Providence Academy. The game-winning score came in the fourth quarter when Baird broke loose for a 36-yard touchdown.
The Woodbury football team's defense pitched a shutout on Friday night. The Royals defeated Stillwater 18-0 Friday at home for the second straight win of the season.

The Royals led 12-0 at halftime thanks to two rushing touchdowns. Jalen Morrison rushed for a two-yard touchdown run in the first quarter, and Ricardo Twinawe added a rushing touchdown of 30-yards in the second quarter.

The Woodbury girls soccer team was able to control play through a majority of Thursday’s Suburban East Conference game versus Park.

After falling behind early in the last several games, Woodbury head coach Pat Malicki said it was nice to get a lead in the opening minutes.
Chalk it up as a draw for the Park and Woodbury boys soccer teams on Thursday. Nothing was decided after both teams played to a 2-2 tie at the end of regulation. Two scoreless five-minute overtimes produced more scoring chances for both teams. But as the final horn sounded, Woodbury and Park were forced to settle for a draw. Park needed a comeback goal from Avery Tillery to tie the game at 2-2 with about 20 minutes left in regulation.
