Crescent City Sports to live stream girls soccer playoff doubleheader Monday
Crescent City Sports’ extensive live streaming coverage of high school sports for 2019-20 continues Monday with a doubleheader of Division I girls soccer playoff action.
No. 2 seed Mount Carmel Academy meets seventh-seeded Central Lafourche at 5 p.m., followed by fourth-seeded St. Mary’s Dominican against No. 5 seed St. Joseph’s Academy at 7 p.m., from Pan American Stadium in New Orleans. CCS’ coverage will begin just prior to kickoff of the opener, with Jude Young and Alan DeRitter describing the action.
The opening matchup features a Mount Carmel (19-3-3) team that defeated Baton Rouge 2-0 in its opening playoff matchup against a Central Lafourche (21-5-3) squad that topped Barbe 3-1. The nightcap pits Dominican (18-1-8), which eliminated Fontainebleau 3-0 on Wednesday, against a St. Joseph’s (16-5-5) squad that advanced with a 6-0 victory over Destrehan.
The Cubs and Trojans are meeting for the first time this season. Dominican knocked off the Redstickers 1-0 on Dec. 27 in Lakeshore’s holiday tournament.
Mount Carmel is seeking its first trip to the semifinals since winning the 2017 Division I title, while Central Lafourche – which moved up from Division II this season – is trying to reach the semis for a third consecutive year. Dominican last reached the semifinals in 2015, while St. Joseph’s has not won a quarterfinal match since 2014.
The Crescent City Sports team has produced more than 300 live streams since 2012 and will feature live streaming of no fewer than 30 high school sporting events throughout the 2019-20 school year. Additionally, in cooperation with Cox Sports Television, CCS will also produce up to 10 more events that will both be televised on CST and streamed on the site.
