Zachary High School’s boys soccer team started out strong this 2014-15 season with six consecutive wins over opponents from St. Thomas Aquinas, Hammond High, East St. John, Northshore High, Walker and Central.
The Broncos’ only season loss has been against St. Amant, 1-0, and the team tied McKinley in a scoreless game.
The ZHS soccer team is undefeated in district play with an 8-1-1 record and is ranked ninth in the LHSAA Division 1 power rankings.
The team has scored 34 goals, allowing only three against it.
“Zachary has a really strong midfield this year, which supports the forwards and allows for more scoring opportunities,” head coach Scott Delhom said. “Our defense is in a rebuilding year, however, with our veteran defensive player, Benton Wesley, combined with our senior goal keeper, Martin Fontenot; the guys have prevented a lot of goals from being scored against them.”
Delhom said as his players get stronger and faster, they’ll work better together as a team.
The Broncos’ remaining threats on the schedule include Dutchtown, Denham Springs and West Monroe, Delhom said.
“We’ll need to play tough and smart during these three critical games to secure a good spot in the playoff bracket,” Delhom said.
