With the District 6-II title on the line in Mandeville, Lakeshore and Holy Cross put it all on the line and did not disappoint. In the end, the two rivals played to a 1-1 tie Wednesday.

Sinjin Mills put Holy Cross ahead with a first half goal before JP Furman scored on a penalty kick early in the second half for the equalizer.

Lakeshore claimed the district championship as a result of goal differential as both teams finished district play with a 2-0-1 record. Holy Cross is 13-3-2 with the tie while Lakeshore is now 7-8-3. The Tigers are the top-ranked team in the LHSAA Division II power rankings with Lakeshore 13th.
