Holy Cross

Prep Soccer Playoff Report for Wednesday, Feb. 17

The quest for a fourth consecutive state championship is alive and well for Holy Cross.

The top-seeded Tigers continued their pursuit of continued excellence with a convincing 6-0 victory over No. 8 South Terrebonne Tuesday afternoon at home in the Division II state quarterfinals.

Senior Edward Moreno was sensational, putting on a one-man show for the Tigers.

Moreno scored five goals in an amazing performance while senior Sinjin Mills added the sixth goal and had an assist. Moreno scored the first five goals for Holy Cross before Mills finished it off.

Holy Cross led 4-0 at halftime.

Holy Cross (23-4-2) advances to the semifinals to take on the winner of No. 4 Ben Franklin and No. 5 Neville. That match, which was scheduled for Tuesday, was postponed due to serious weather concerns for Neville, due to the snow and ice storm in Monroe.

The date and time for that match has not been determined yet, though Friday afternoon is a distinct possibility.

The Division II quarterfinal between No. 10 East Jefferson and No. 2 St. Thomas More was also postponed and will now be played at noon today at Joe Yenni Stadium.

In Division I, top seed Catholic of Baton Rouge will square off with No. 9 Dutchtown at 10 a.m. today while in Division III, No. 5 E.D. White Catholic plays at No. 4 North Vermilion at 1 p.m.

In Division IV action today, No. 4 Northlake Christian entertains No. 5 Holy Savior Menard at 5 p.m., No. 6 Episcopal plays at No. 3 Episcopal of Acadiana at noon and No. 2 Catholic of New Iberia visits No. 10 Ascension Episcopal at 5:30 p.m.
