Crescent City Sports to live stream soccer doubleheader Tuesday
NEW ORLEANS – Crescent City Sports’ live streaming coverage of high school sports continues Tuesday with a pair of soccer matches, headlined by a high-profile District 7-II boys matchup between Archbishop Rummel and East Jefferson.
The doubleheader begins at 4 p.m. with a girls matchup between host East Jefferson and Patrick Taylor, followed by the Raiders and Warriors at 6:30 p.m. Coverage begins just before kickoff with Emmanuel Pepis and Kenny Farrell describing the action.
Rummel (15-2), which had a 14-match winning streak snapped Saturday against district rival Grace King, is currently second in the unofficial LHSAA Division II power rankings, while East Jefferson (9-5-3), which opened district play Friday with a victory over Belle Chasse, is ranked sixth.
Last season, when the teams were not in the same district, the Raiders defeated the Warriors 2-0 in an early-season tournament.
The girls opener between East Jefferson and Patrick Taylor matches two teams seeking their fourth victories of the year. The Warriors are ranked 12th in Division II while the Tigers are 24th in Division III.
The Crescent City Sports team is in its 12th season of producing live broadcasts for television and internet, having produced more than 400 live streams since 2012, and is continuing its extensive commitment to prep sports coverage on its website for 2022-23.
