ST. LOUIS — While Joe Burchett was happy with his team’s 2-0 victory over Lutheran South in Tuesday’s pool play game of the CYC Tourney’s Sullivan/Walsh Division, the Marquette Catholic soccer coach was also breathing a sigh of relief as the game ended.

“Not our best effort,” Burchett said. “But coming right after (Monday’s) really hard game, I’ll take it. The boys were still dragging a little after that one.”

The Explorers game at Lutheran South’s Gornet Field came less than 24 hours after Marquette battled host Clayton to a 3-3 tie in the first round of the tournament. It was a battle of unbeaten teams many consider the top two small school teams in the St. Louis area.

“We weren’t in sync tonight, especially on defense,” Burchett said. “Last night was a really long, hard-fought game.

“Credit (Lutheran South) for some of the problems today, though. They played us hard, but we were not communicating very well at all, especially early. And we gave up the ball too many times.”

All that, and a win to boot, however.

“That’s the good news,” Burchett said. “We did get the win.”

The victory pushed Marquette to 10-0-4, while Lutheran South dropped to 6-6. The Lancers are 0-2 in Pool 3, while Marquette is 1-0-1.

Meanwhile, in another pool play game of the tourney, Alton High defeated Mehlville 3-2 to go to 2-0 in Pool 1.

Wednesday, Alton will play Mascoutah at 4:15 at Soccer Park in Fenton and Marquette will play at Tumberland High School against the host team at 7:45 p.m.

Tuesday, the Explorers got a goal in each half and posted the shutout with a defense that bent a few times, but did not break.

Marquette’s Stephen Hasse broke the scoring ice in the 23rd minute off an assist from Chris Hartrich. The goal came after a series of chances that the Explorers didn’t finish.

And that was all the scoring until early in the second half, when the two Explorers combined again, this time with Hasse assisting Hartrich.

The second Marquette goal came in the 44th minute following a restart from just beyond the left corner. Hartrich’s low shot zipped past Lancers goalie Austin Reis.

Marquette had a chance to make it 3-0 with nine minutes remaining when a 40-yard blast by Hasse caromed off the right goal post to Ries, who was able to corral the ball and tiptoe along the goal line before it could cross over.

Alton 3, Mehlville 2 - Parker Rockholm scored with eight minutes remaining to lift Alton to the victory.

After a quick start Monday propelled the Redbirds to a Monday tourney win over Troy Buchanan, they encountered a different situation Tuesday - a slow start.

“We started the exact opposite of last night,” Alton coach Nick Funk said. “(Mehlville) had a shot go over the crossbar in the first 30 seconds and jumped all over us with their speed and size.”

After spotting Mehlville an early 1-0 lead, Alton countered with a pair of quick goals by Justin Davison in the 25th and 30th minutes to lead 2-1 at halftime.

Davison scored from a Roman Thomeczek assist in the 25th minute and again in the 30th minute, assisted by Jaden Singleton.

And when a Mehlville playershown a red card for dissent early in the second half, Alton looked to go for the kill. But instead, Mehlville stepped up its pace and tied it with a short-handed goal three minutes later.

The Redbirds recovered, settled in, and got the game winner from Rockholm.

Jake Lombardi found space in the middle of the field and slotted the ball over to Rockholm, whose one-time shot slipped just under the crossbar from 40- yard.

“We battled back in the first half, which is a good sign,” Funk said. “Minus the slow start, it was a good game.”
