Lady Trojans secure huge road win against State Power

For decades, the Vandebilt Catholic girls have owned a monopoly on local prep soccer. 

Not anymore.

The Central Lafourche girls’ soccer team earned one of their biggest wins in program history on Tuesday night, traveling to Houma and defeating the powerful Lady Terriers 2-1.

With the win, the Lady Trojans are now 12-4-4 on the season. By beating a prominent program like Vandebilt, Central Lafourche stated loudly that they intend to again chase the State Championship this winter — after making a couple-straight strong playoff pushes in recent years.

Tuesday’s match was a barnburner between a pair of state powers.

But by the time the whistle had blown, it was the Lady Trojans who had put the ball into the back of the net once more than Vandebilt — securing the road win.

The Lady Trojans have several prominent players who have high-level playoff experience. The team reached the State Finals in 2018 and the State Semifinals in 2019 — falling to St. Thomas More in both years.

This year, there will not be a rematch with St. Thomas More, as the Lady Trojans are in Division I. 

They’re currently seeded No. 9 in recent power rating projections.
