St. Louis Catholic Girls Soccer Upsets Hannan in Quarterfinals

For the second consecutive season, the Hannan girls soccer team saw its season come to an end at the hands of the St. Louis Catholic Saints.

No. 5 St. Louis Catholic defeated No. 4 Hannan 2-1 in overtime Monday night in Covington in a LHSAA Division III quarterfinal, advancing to the state semifinals against No. 1 Vandebilt Catholic, who eliminated No. 9 Erath 7-0 Monday.  UPDATE: The Lady Saints will face Vandebilt Friday at 5:30 p.m.

Tied after 80 minutes of regulation, St. Louis wasted little time regaining the lead when senior Olivia Broussard snuck a shot past a diving Mikayla Boyer in goal to make it 2-1 Saints.

In a rematch of a 2018 quarterfinal, when St. Louis topped Hannan 7-1 in Lake Charles, the Saints (18-6-1) scored quickly when sophomore Ashleigh Tassin knocked in a deflection in the right corner of the net past Boyer in the eighth minute to make it 1-0.

The champions of Division III, District 6, Hannan (16-6-2) had three major chances to score in the first half. In the second minute, junior Emily Barre’s shot was just wide and Chloe Guerrin had a point-blank shot in the 20th minute. Barre had another chance to tie the match in stoppage time, but her shot hit the right post and stayed out of the net.

Barre finally broke through in the 59th minute, driving nearly half the length of field herself and blasting a cross shot that found the back of the net to tie the match at 1.
