Revenge tasted sweet for Holy Cross.
After losing to Jesuit early in the season in the opening of John Ryan Stadium in Metairie, the Tigers got a second shot at their arch-rival Monday and took total advantage of the opportunity.
Cooper Gioe singled home the winning run in the bottom of the seventh inning to give the Tigers a dramatic 4-3 win over the Blue Jays at Kirsch-Rooney Stadium.
The Tigers moved to 22-10 on the season and improved their power ranking heading into the 4A playoffs. The Tigers figure as the fourth or fifth-seed in the upcoming 4A playoffs.
Jesuit had beaten Holy Cross 6-1 on March 2 to open their new stadium. With the loss, Jesuit dropped to 23-7 overall.

John Curtis continued its second half surge, beating a good Belle Chasse squad 7-5.
After starting the season 1-6-1, the Patriots closed the season on a run, finishing 21-3 over their final 24 games. With a final record of 22-9-1, John Curtis looks like the fifth-seed in the upcoming 2A playoffs.
With the loss, Belle Chasse fell to 19-9 overall. The loss snapped a five-game winning streak for the Cardinals, who figure as the eighth or ninth-seed in the upcoming 4A state playoffs.
