Mount Saint Joseph ju­nior Diego Guer­rero scored three goals to lead the topranked Gaels to a 4-2 come­back win over vis­it­ing Arch­bishop Spald­ing on Wednes­day in boys soc­cer.

The win moved Mount Saint Joseph (11-1-1, 9-1-1) into a tie with No. 2 Calvert Hall (11-2-2, 9-2-1) in the Mary­land In­ter­scholas­tic Ath­letic As­so­ci­a­tion A Con­fer­ence, with 28 points each.

The Cava­liers (2-11-1, 1-9-1) led 2-1 after a pair of goals 142 sec­onds apart by se­nior Pe­ter Roberts. His twin brother, Zach, started each score with a free kick.

Guer­rero con­verted a penalty kick to tie the game at 2 with 7:03 left in the first half. His sec­ond-half goals came off as­sists from Brett St. Mar­tin and Tyler Collins. It was Guer­rero’s first hat trick. “It felt re­ally good,” he said. “In one game, it’s not some­thing I get ev­ery day, so I ap­pre­ci­ate myteam­mateshelp­ingmescore.”

Added Gaels coach Mike St. Mar­tin: “He’s tech­ni­cally a very good player and he’s strong on the ball.”

St. Mar­tin scored the Gaels’ first goal after a cor­ner kick from Ian Reger.

Spald­ing re­mains tied with St. Paul’s (1-10-1, 1-10-1) for last in the con­fer­ence.

The Cava­liers didn’t look like a cel­lar dweller when the Roberts twins cre­ated trou­ble for a Gaels de­fense that had won its pre­vi­ous seven league games by a com­bined 12-2 mar­gin.

Spald­ing coach Nick Hon­drum liked the way his team hung in the game but knows they still have work to do to beat up­perech­e­lon op­po­nents.

“When we play con­fi­dent, I think we can play with any­body, and to­day we showed con­fi­dence from time to time, but it’s go­ing to take prac­tice to get con­sis­tent with that,” Hon­drum said.
