Area Prep Soccer Report for Wednesday, Nov. 24

Facing tough schedules, Lusher Charter and Holy Cross each suffered a pair of losses over last weekend.

That tough schedule and those tough losses will only make the Lions and Tigers better sides moving forward.

Defending Division III state champion Lusher Charter scored an impressive 3-1 victory on the road Tuesday against Dutchtown.

The Lions led 1-0 at halftime.

Senior Russell Brown and sophomore Alex Lupin each had a goal and an assist while senior Evan Walsh added a goal for Lusher. Senior Carter Maggio had six saves in goal for the Lions.

Lusher (2-2-2), which has played an extremely challenging schedule, will play New Orleans Military & Maritime next Monday. The Griffins (1-2-2) will host Baton Rouge next Tuesday.

Division II defending state champion Holy Cross rolled to a 7-1 win over South Terrebonne.

Ryan Jeanfreau had a hat trick to lead the Tigers while Ethan Carney added two goals to lead the attack.

Holy Cross (3-2) returns to action Saturday at St. Amant at 1 p.m. The Gators (0-1) play at Central Lafourche next Tuesday.
