Lady Bearcats advance after win over Beau Chene

By Kyle Roberts

Ruston High School soccer advanced to the second round of the playoffs after a 2-0 win Friday night at home against Beau Chene in its first playoff appearance since the 2018-19 season.

“We had chances early in the match,” Ruston head coach Jacquelyn Bean said. “We just kept pressing, and we felt like what we were doing would eventually work. It paid off with two goals in the second half.”

Going into the halftime locker room tied 0-0, Ruston’s offense surged in the second half with two goals; first by Mia Tapia on a free kick from 25 yards out, and then by Elliana Ramos for her first goal of the season to give Ruston its 2-0 lead.

Morgan Foster was moved to keeper in the last game of the regular season and recorded six saves in the shutout win.

Ruston will play the winner of the Teurlings Catholic/South Lafourche match, which will be played Saturday afternoon.
