Soccer: Carney, Holy Cross dominate Franklinton
Area Prep Soccer Report for Thursday, Jan. 16
Seeking to regain the top spot in the Division II statewide rankings, two-time defending Division II state champion Holy Cross is a very close second in the most recent Louisiana High School Soccer Coaches Association rankings, trailing St. Thomas More. The Tigers are third in the LHSAA Division II power rankings, behind the Cougars and Beau Chene.
Holy Cross bounced back from a loss to Jesuit on the strength of a brilliant performance Wednesday from Ethan Carney in its quest to return to the top with a convincing 8-0 victory over Franklinton in a District 7-II match on the Tiger campus.
Carney scored four goals and got support with a goal each by Sebastian Magee, Edward Moreno, Bryce Davis and Ben Tichenor.
Holy Cross (13-5-3, 2-0) returns to district play Friday at 5:30 p.m. at Salmen while the Demons (1-10-1, 0-2) return to district play next Wednesday at Lakeshore at 6 p.m.
