Soccer: Rummel overwhelms Patrick Taylor, Dominican blanks Mandeville
Area Prep Soccer Report for Thursday, Nov. 19
Rummel rips Patrick Taylor; Dominican blanks Mandeville (Ken Trahan)
It has been a while since Archbishop Rummel has been a factor in soccer.
Perhaps 2020 will be a bit different for the Raiders.
Rummel opened its 2020-21 season with a convincing 8-0 victory over Patrick Taylor Wednesday on the West Bank.
Rummel led 7-0 at the half and scored the final goal to end it in the second half.
Sophomore Tobo Takpor was sensational, scoring four goals for the Raiders, who have a host of young players infusing the program.
Junior Eric Ochoa, sophomore Wilder Fuentes and freshman William Patrick each added a goal for Rummel.
The Raiders next play in tournament play at Mandeville Saturday at 9:30 a.m. while the Tigers will host Archbishop Shaw Friday at 7 p.m.
In girls action, it has been a really good week for Dominican overall in athletics.
The school won the Division I state volleyball championship last Saturday in Kenner. Then, Kelsey Major won an individual cross country state title earlier this week in Natchitoches.
Now, Dominican opened its season on the pitch with a very impressive 5-0 victory over always tough Mandeville at Pan American Stadium in a battle of traditional powers.
Dominican dominated from start to finish, leading 3-0 at halftime and adding a pair of second half goals for the victory.
Sophomore Ella Goings and junior Jasmine Ferrier led the charge with a pair of goals each while junior Kelsey Major scored the other goal for Dominican, who reached the semifinals in Division I a year ago with a young team while the Skippers reached the Division I title game.
Both teams return to action Saturday as Dominican returns to action Saturday at 11 a.m. at Hahnville while Mandeville travels to Sulphur at 1 p.m.
