“This was the best the boys have played in a while,” said Head Coach Chris McGrath. “Especially the first half. Tonight we learned about what it takes to be in a battle with a good side. Not to take anything away from Cathedral, but the outcome could have just as easily been 1-0 our way, which is valuable for us as we continue to explore who we are going to be as a team.”
Both teams played well, counterattacking with speed and frequency. Guerin Catholic won the possession battle in the first half, and matched Cathedral with dangerous opportunities on goal throughout. But in the second half, a second effort assist from a player on the ground resulted in an opposite corner goal for Cathedral, which was the difference maker for the match.
“This is a good group of boys. We’re getting healthy, and starting to gel as a group with quite a few games to come,” said McGrath.
Guerin Catholic is at home Thursday night against Circle City Conference opponent Covenant Christian. Kickoff is at 7:00 p.m.
