Four-time champion Brother Martin will be the highest-seeded team from the New Orleans area in next month’s boys bowling state playoffs, assuring that position with a 25-2 victory over Holy Cross in the regular-season finale for both schools Tuesday at Colonial Lanes in Harahan.

The Crusaders (11-1) used nine different bowlers against the Tigers, with Ethan Porta leading the way with a 221 opening game and 591 series. Jacob Vangilder’s 236 middle game was the high game of the match.

Holy Cross (7-5) was led by Jackson Haro’s 437 series.

Brother Martin entered Monday ranked sixth in the LHSAA unofficial power rankings and could move up a notch or two with Tuesday’s victory. The final rankings and playoff brackets will be announced next week.

East Jefferson 23, Kenner Discovery 4: The Warriors got a big performance from Caleb Goetz in getting their first victory of the season, defeating the Swamp Owls at AMF All Star Lanes in Kenner.

Goetz fired an opening-game 267, one pin shy of the high game in the metro area this season, as East Jefferson (1-11) raced to an 8-0 lead and never looked back. Goetz ended with a 574 series.

Kenner Discovery (2-10) got a 151 final game from Jad Massassati.
