It is always prudent and smart to use your head in any activity in life.

That is true in athletics as well.

It was true in the literal sense Saturday at Pan American Stadium.

No. 10 Academy of the Sacred Heart of New Orleans scored a big, dramatic victory, downing No. 2 Houma Christian 2-1 in two overtimes at Pan American Stadium Saturday in the girls Division IV soccer quarterfinals.

CC Johnson scored the game-winning goal in the second overtime with just 15 seconds remaining to produce the upset, avoiding the penalty kick phase.

Corner kick from Sinclair Nolan to CC Johnson goal wins it for Sacred Heart in the second overtime with :15 left versus #2 seed Houma Christian. GO CARDINALS ❤️❤️
