Area Prep Soccer Report for Sunday, Jan. 30

You always want to be playing your best heading into the postseason.

That is certainly the case for Dominican.

In a rematch of the Division I championship game of a season ago, Dominican exacted revenge Saturday against its primary rival, shutting out Mount Carmel Academy 3-0 at Pan American Stadium for its 11th straight win.

It was the Kelsey Major show.

Major put on a major performance, scoring all three goals in the first half as Dominican controlled play from start to finish.

Mount Carmel edged Dominican, the top seed, 1-0 in the 2021 Division I state title match.

Dominican (24-1-1) is the top-ranked team in the LHSAA Division I power rankings and should be the top seed when playoff pairings are announced this week. Dominican has not lost a match in-state this season.

Mount Carmel (12-6-6) was ranked ninth and may not lose any position in playoff seedings, based on losing to the top-ranked team.

Archbishop Rummel wrapped up its fine regular season with a convincing 5-1 victory at home over Destrehan on Senior Day.

The Raiders led 3-0 at halftime.

Junior CJ Koppeis scored a pair of goals, including his 25th of the season and 50th of his Raider career. Senior Eric Ochoa, junior Tobo Takpor and sophomore Christopher Wallace each added a goal. Takpor now has 20 goals on the season for the second straight year. The Raiders have now scored 81 goals on the season, a school record.

M. Laumann scored the goal for the Wildcats on an assist by C. Ledet.

Rummel will be a top 10 seed, likely sixth or seventh overall, when the Division I pairings come out and will host a first-round contest.
