Crescent City Sports to live stream Jesuit-Lusher Charter soccer Thursday night
NEW ORLEANS – Crescent City Sports will live stream a showdown of two of the top boys soccer teams in Louisiana as unbeatens Jesuit and Lusher Charter face off Thursday night.
Thursday’s coverage on CrescentCitySports.com begins just before the 7 p.m. CST kickoff from Brees Family Field on the Lusher campus. Jude Young of CCS and coach Alan DeRitter will describe the action.
Jesuit (12-0-3) is ranked No. 1 in Division I in the Louisiana High School Soccer Coaches Association poll. The Blue Jays have won eight consecutive matches and not allowed a goal since Dec. 29.
Lusher (13-0-3), the top-ranked team in Division III, has allowed just one goal in its last six matches, and that came in a 1-1 draw against district rival E.D. White last Friday.
Despite the unbeaten records and No. 1 rankings, both teams are second in their respective divisions in the unofficial LHSAA power ratings released Monday. Thursday’s match can provide a late push for both, with the final regular season matches on Feb. 1 and playoff brackets announced two days later.
The Crescent City Sports team is in its 10th season of producing live broadcasts for television and internet, having produced broadcasts of more than 300 live games since 2012, and is continuing its extensive commitment to prep sports coverage on its website for 2020-21. Additionally, in cooperation with Cox Sports Television, CCS will also produce additional events that will both be televised on CST and streamed on the site.
