Bishop Diego Thumps Thacher to Take Over Frontier League Lead

Bishop Diego boys soccer took sole possession of first place in the Frontier League with a 5-0 rout of Thacher.

The Cardinals are 3-0 in league and 6-3 overall. Thacher is 2-1 and 3-3-1.

Alec Marchand got the Cardinals on the board in the 31st minute when he pounced on the rebound from his own shot.

Jack Luckhurst made it 2-0 before halftime.

Daniel Giannini's header of an Adam Luckhurst corner kick gave the Cardinals a 3-0 lead.

"After missing six weeks with a serious knee sprain, Daniel has been a massive contributor defensively in the last two games," said coach Mick Luckhurst.

Jack Luckhurst scored his second goal on a penalty kick after his brother, Michael, was brought down in the box.

A Thacher own goal made it 5-0.

“The boys have worked very hard and I am excited for them to see the results of these efforts," coach Luckhurst said. "The team goal is to be playing our best soccer during our last game of the season. We have still have of areas to improve in.

"I told the boys and coaching staff to enjoy this win but to arrive at practice with two things they can improve on.”

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
