Jesuit are prepared to take on LaSalle this Thursday.

This Thursday, Jesuit takes on La Salle Prep on Cronin Field. Currently on a 4-game win streak, the Crusaders hope to beat this strong opponent. Ranking #2  in 5A OSAA ranking and #1 in 5A OSAA Coaches’ poll, La Salle has a 6-1 record, only losing to 6A Forest Grove this past Tuesday. Jesuit, which competes in the 6A level, will have to work hard in order to extend their hot form. 

This game will be the last chance for the Crusaders to prepare for the Metro League. Their strong defensive performances from players Dominic Hoar-Weiler and Finn Deem-Ranzetta have helped them in their win streak, only conceding 3 goals in 4 games. Top scorer Spencer Carle (5 goals on the season) also has contributed to their latest efforts.

La Salle has had no trouble scoring to begin this season, scoring 26 goals in 7 games, led by senior Mizael Harris.

This game is set up to be action packed and full of attacking play. 

Jesuit will know that this game won’t be easy, but are ready for the challenge. They hope to move up from their #8 6A ranking before the Metro League season starts. La Salle will bring everything they have in hopes of regaining the #1 5A spot.
