It was a different year but the same result for the Catholic High soccer team.
The fifth-seeded Bears lost to Sulphur High for the second straight season in the Division I boys soccer playoffs on Tuesday night.
Goals by Andrew Reel and Andre Vincent were just enough to give 12th-seeded Sulphur a 2-1 regional-round playoff victory in the contest played at Burbank Soccer Complex.
The loss was only the second of the season for the Bears (15-2-5), who lost to Sulphur in the regional round a year ago.
Joshua Campbell scored the lone goal for Catholic. Sulphur (18-6-4) advances to play the winner of Thursday’s West Monroe at Dutchtown game.
Sulphur’s Bradley Bosco recorded five saves for Sulphur, while Catholic’s Will Whitehead had two.
NORTHLAKE CHRISTIAN 2, PARKVIEW BAPTIST 1: In Covington, the Northlake Christian soccer team was not going to let the upset bug bite them. So the Wolverines got their key goal early.
Mason Cook’s goals in the third and 54th minute proved to be the game-winner as third-seeded Northlake beat No. 14 Parkview Baptist 2-1 in the regional round of the Division III playoffs.
Northlake (18-1-8) advances to take on sixth-seeded Episcopal School of Acadiana in the quarterfinals. ESA defeated Rapides in its regional contest.
Parkview’s Dillon Hoglen’s had the highlight of the night as he launched an 80-yard shot, which bounced pass the Northlake goaltender to cut the lead to 2-1.
Richard Humphrey gave Northlake an insurance goal in the 76th minute via a penalty kick after a yellow card was called in the box on Parkview Baptist.
PBS coach Roger Charcap said he was proud of his team’s effort against one of the better teams in the state. The Eagles finish 15-11.
“I was really proud of my team,” Charcap said. “They played their hearts out and left everything out on the field. We told the guys before the game that we had to get off to a good start and not fall behind early because the longer we stayed in the game the better our chances increased to come away with a win.
“Unfortunately they (Northlake Christian) got the early goal, but to our team’s credit they never stopped fighting throughout the match.”
NEWMAN 5, EPISCOPAL 1: Newman controlled another Division III by dominating possession of the ball, which generated many early scoring chances.
Julian Sutton scored from close range to put Newman up 1-0 in the 19th minute of the game played at Newman.
Will Savioe initially appeared to give his team a 2-0 lead, but the goal was disallowed because of an offside. That didn’t matter much as Sutton scored again less than two minutes later and Newman cruised into halftime up 2-0.
Evan DeBlanc scored on a feed from Sam Moses less than a minute into the second half and Newman began to pull away. The Knights finally got on the board late in the 74th minute on a goal by Alex Castine.
