Tenth-ranked Lady Falcons stun third-ranked Lady Hawks battling to a 1-1 tie.
Saint Ladies score first, but last minute goal by Hannan ties it.

HAMMOND—The Lady Falcons hosted the Hannan Lady Hawks in a key District match Wednesday and the two squads put on a defensive show as Saint Thomas took the early second half lead on a penalty kick and held the advantage until Hannan scored a late goal to survive with a tie.
    Senior Reagan Greer worked the ball in front of the box early in the second half and was fouled and sophomore Mia Milton cashed in the penalty kick to give Saint Thomas a 1-0 lead with 35:53 showing. The Lady Falcons defense kept the Lady Hawks scoreless until the final three minutes of play when Katie Dittman scored off a corner kick to tie it with 2:40 showing.
    Senior keeper Anna Parker was stellar in the box with five key saves and was grabbed by the arm preventing her from defending the Hannan shot on goal that found the net.

Early Lady Jag goals sink Lady Falcons.
Pope John Paul starts fast and rolls to 4-0 semi-final win.

HAMMOND—The Lady Jags quickly shook off any anxiety they may have had playing on the road in a LHSAA Division III semi-final match against rival Saint Thomas Thursday afternoon as Christina Cutura scored off a corner five minutes in, giving the eighth-seeded Lady Jaguars the early lead that led to a 4-0 win at Chappapeela Park.
    “It killed us,” Saint Thomas Aquinas head coach B.J. Scott said of that first goal. “We came out flat and you lose when you don’t play your best game against good teams. We were never able to use our speed because we couldn’t pass the ball. It was just a bad day.”
    Saint Thomas had a flurry of shots early on before Pope was able to flip the field. Cuturas shot from the left side gave the Lady Jaguars a 1-0 lead. Christina Cutura scored off a feed from Marlena Cutura to push the lead to 2-0 eight minutes in.
    St. Thomas threatened in the 14th minute as Rebecca McDonald took a pass from Reagan Greer but had her shot grabbed by PJP keeper Alexis Molero. Marlena Cuturas shot from the left wing deflected off the crossbar in the 19th minute. Cutura got the ball back off a rebound by Peyton Corwin but missed wide left.
    Marlena Cutura got another chance in the 23rd minute, angling a shot from the right side into the left-upper corner of the net to make it 3-0.
    Greer took a shot off a steal by Mia Milton in the 26th minute but was denied by Molero. Molero saved another shot by Milton in the 30th minute. Molero grabbed a corner kick by Lindsey Cordoba four minutes into the second half. After Christina Cutura headed a cross from Marlena Cutura over the crossbar, Molero stopped a shot by Leigh Cannino off a corner by Cordoba in the eighth minute.
    Pope regained the momentum from there with both Cuturas missing high on shots before Marlena Cutura finished off the scoring with a sliding shot from the right wing in the 29th minute.

Saint Thomas Ladies punch ticket to the Division III Final Four.

MONROE,LA—The Saint Thomas Aquinas Division III quarterfinal trip to Saint Frederick was a long one but it was worth it as the Lady Falcons advanced to the semifinals for the first time with a 3-2 victory Saturday afternoon.
“It’s pretty exciting,” said St. Thomas Aquinas coach B.J. Scott. “Saint Thomas had previously made the quarterfinals in 2008, 09, 12 and 13. I know the girls are very happy.”
    Twelfth-seeded Saint Thomas (16-7-3) now gets another familiar opponent in No. 8 Pope John Paul II (13-5-4), which advanced with a 2-0 win over No. 17 Country Day Friday. The Lady Falcons tied PJP 2-2 and lost to the Lady Jaguars 2-1 in District 8-III play this season. Saint Thomas defeated district rival Archbishop Hannan 2-1 in the Regionals.
    “Were very familiar with them,” Scott said of PJP. ”Were going to need some more good play out of our strikers.”
    Saint Thomas took a 1-0 halftime lead on a goal by Reagan Greer. No. 4 St. Frederick (14-4-1) tied the match at 1 on a goal by Mem Smelser in the first minute of the second half.
    “We kind of came out and out our guard down and put a quick one by us,” Scott said. That kind of woke us up and got them playing hard again. The Lady Falcons quickly responded with a goal by Lindsey Cordoba. Greer then netted her second goal to give St. Thomas a 3-1 lead.
    “Speed,” Scott said of the key to the win. “Our strikers did it again. They were able to get behind their defenders and put away some goals.” Saint Frederick pulled to within 3-2 on a goal by Blair Breard in the 72nd minute, but the Lady Falcons held off the Lady Warriors in the final minutes. Anna Parker finished with five saves.

Greer scores four goals to pace 5-0 win!
Saint Thomas shutouts Parkview to advance to second round.

HAMMOND—Saint Thomas Aquinas found a quick way to overcome its recent scoring slump. The Lady Falcons, who had scored three goals in their previous three matches, used an advantage in speed to run by Parkview Baptist, 5-0, in the opening round of the Division III playoffs Thursday night at Chappapeela Park.
    Reagan Greer scored the first four goals and Lindsey Cordoba added one in the final two minutes as No. 12 Saint Thomas (12-7-2) advanced to the regionals to play district rival Archbishop Hannan. Hannan (19-5-1), the fifth seed, also took a 5-0 win over No. 21 Sacred Heart-Grand Coteau. The Lady Falcons and Lady Hawks split their two matches during the regular season.
    “We have two very fast strikers and their movement created a lot of space,” Saint Thomas coach B.J. Scott said. “Our midfielders found them and they just tore them apart.”
    “It was Parkview (11-10-3) which had the opening salvo Thursday as Haleigh Consterdine sent a shot in to Saint Thomas keeper Anna Parker with 38:18 left in the first half.
    “It looked like we had a little bit of nerves,” Scott said. “We hadn’t played in over a week or so so we were a little shaky there at the start. But we finally settled in and kind of took over the game.”
    Saint Thomas came back four minutes later as Greer just missed the left post on a shot from the right wing. Parkview keeper Victoria Consterdine then snared shots by Cordoba and Greer.
    After the Lady Falcons defense turned away a trio of corner kicks by the Lady Eagles, Parker snared shot by Lindsey Nunez and Audrey Lemoine. St. Thomas broke the stalemate with three minutes left as Greer ran down the right side, then beat Consterdine on a shot to the left side of the net, giving the Lady Falcons a 1-0 lead.
    Greer nearly added another goal in the final two minutes but Consterdine came up to make a sliding tackle. Greer got that goal with 39:23 remaining in the match with a breakaway run down the middle.
    “It definitely deflated them and just really settled us down,” Scott said. Greer got her hat trick at the 33:31 mark after taking a touch pass from Cordoba, extending the Lady Falcons lead to 3-0.
    Consterdine grabbed another shot by Greer off a pass from Cordoba with 32:18 remaining. Consterdine then made a diving save at the left post after Sydney Milton took a shot off a give-and-go from Greer at the 32-minute mark. Parker grabbed shots from Nunez and Consterdine to preserve the shutout with 23:42 left.
    Greer hit the left post after taking a through ball from Leigh Cannino, but then scored her final goal from the left side after taking a pass from Milton with 13:57 left. Cordoba broke away for the final goal after taking a pass from Jenna-Francis Duvic.
    
Ten Lady Falcons kick in goals!
Saint Thomas rolls past Pine 13-0.

HAMMOND—Sydney Milton tuned a hat trick, leading ten Lady Falcons who scored in Saint Thomas Aquinas 13-0 District 8-III win over Pine on Senior Day at the Chappapella Sports Complex Saturday afternoon.
    “Were building and getting stronger and stronger each day,” said Saint Thomas head coach B.J. Scott as his team heads down the final stretch of the season. “Were just working on our fitness now and looking for the long haul in here. Hopefully we can make a big splash in the playoffs.”
    The Lady Falcons (11-4-2, 3-2-1) have four matches remaining in the regular season. The Lady Falcons travel to Pope John Paul II Tuesday before hosting their final home game Wednesday against Louise McGehee. Saint Thomas then wraps up at Archbishop Hannan and McGehee next Tuesday and Friday, respectively.
    Saint Thomas, which won at Pine 19-0 earlier this season, put this one away early as well. Lindsey Cordoba stole a throw-in in the Pine zone, then beat Lady Raider keeper Kirsten Barber with a shot to the right side of the net three minutes into the contest.
    Mia Milton found the right side of the net after picking off a goal kick to make it 2-0 a minute later. Abbie Busch scored following a run down the left side for a 3-0 lead in the seventh minute. Milton scored her first two goals off passes from Cordoba in the eighth and 10th minutes to extend the lead to 5-0. Allie Ridgell connected off a cross from Busch to make it 6-0 in the 24th minute.
    Pine (0-8, 0-6) got its first shot of the game in the 36th minute as Callie Blackwell took aim from the right side but Anna Parker made a leaping save near the crossbar.
    Leigh Cannino found the top of the net from about 25 yards out to put St. Thomas up 7-0 in the 39th minute. Kaitlyn Perrin completed the scoring in the half after taking a through ball in from Milton in the final minute. “We wanted to go ahead and put them away so we could get the other girls on to play and then we can work on the things we are trying to work on,” Scott said.
    Saint Thomas kept up the barrage in the opening minutes of the second half. Milton scored her third goal in the second minute and Olivia Bates followed after beating Barber one-on-one. Parker came out of the net to connect on a penalty kick following a foul to make it 11-0 in the eighth minute.
    Parker then deflected away an attempt by Blackwell in the 10th minute. Five minutes later, a handball in the box gave the Lady Falcons another penalty kick and Tori Durand capitalized to make it 12-0. Bates scored her final goal on a direct kick to finish off the scoring in the 34th minute after Parker made a pair of saves on shots by Pines Chelsea Rogers.

Fellow senior Leigh Cannino padded the Saint Thomas margin ten minutes later with a goal.
