On Tuesday night the Division II #1 ranked Holy Cross soccer team battled the Division IV #1 ranked team, the Newman Greenies at Manning Field. This was the second time in three games Holy Cross has faced off against a #1 ranked team, having beaten the ever impressive Division III Vandebilt Catholic in their season opener.
The Holy Cross Tigers came away with a 4-1 win with goals from Seniors Sebastian Aguilar (2), Blake Baldassaro and impressive freshman Sinjin Mills.
This was a hard fought battle against a perennial powerhouse in Newman, who boast an impressive unbeaten streak at their home field stretching back several years. This also marks the first time Holy Cross has beaten Newman at the Varsity level since Coach Hayers took over the program.
The Tigers return to action this Friday night vs Division foe Central Lafourche, hoping to build on an impressive start to the season and continue their unbeaten streak.
