In the parish's soccer action last week, the Dutchtown boys continued to look strong as they cruised past McKinley 3-1.

But on the girl's side, things didn't quite go as well for St. Amant as they took a tough 8-0 shutout loss to St. Joseph's Academy on the chin.

Dutchtown headed into their district opener against McKinley with a little momentum after they won two of three games in a tournament at St. Amant. They ended the two-day affair with a 1-0 victory over Destrehan.

The Griffins made easy work of their district rival--cruising to the 3-1 win.

Defensively, Christian Carildo only allowed the one goal, and he also made five saves.

As for the Dutchtown offense, Jeremy Thomas and Cameron Gauthreaux were among the players that scored goals.

The great play didn't end there for the Griffins. Over the weekend, they absolutely thrashed East Ascension, 8-1.

It was their third straight victory and pushed their overall record to 5-2 and a perfect 2-0 in the district.

Unfortunately, the Griffins did lose to Denham Springs on Monday night. This Saturday, they'll get a chance to make amends when they host a district matchup as they take on 1-2-4 Baton Rouge High.

Things didn't go quite as well for the St. Amant girls. They were blanked by a struggling St. Joseph's Academy team, 8-0.

The Red Stickers had three different players score two goals.

It was the fourth straight loss for St. Amant and their second straight shutout defeat. The previous weekend, they were beaten soundly by Madeville, 5-0.

Overall, it dropped their record to 2-4 and 0-1 in the district. The Lady Gators will host Woodlawn on Friday and on Saturday, they'll visit New Iberia.
