The win over Leesville, which is in second place in the Cap 8, gives Broughton more cushion as it works to hold on to first place in the conference. The Caps are now 7-0-1 in conference play, while Leesville falls to 5-2-1, with both losses being to Broughton.
The two teams traded chances for the rest of the half, with both teams missing on opportunities to score. The score was 1-0 at halftime.
Junior Ike Drooz drew a penalty in the box with about 10 minutes to go in the game, but the shot was called off because of encroachment by one of the Broughton players.
Earlier, the Broughton junior varsity team eked out a tough 1-0 win over Leesville thanks to a header by Jacob Hill off a pass from Kebe Martinez.
The Caps, who are now ranked fifth among the state's 4-A schools by Eurosport (click on 4-A in the thin gray box near the top of the page), return to action Wednesday night. They play Millbrook at home in the second of three conference games this week.
