Catholic vs Greenwood – Class 1 Derby

Under a cool Fall sky, the small school rivalry was renewed this evening between the host Blue Jays and visiting Fightin’ Irish. Unlike last year’s District Final, the Blue Jays did not play conservatively on their home pitch, they came out looking for the first goal. It was not to be in this case as the Irish pounced on the first mistake. Keeper Hawken Thieme was able to stop Luke Strauss’ 25 yard shot but was unable to hold onto the ball as the new turf kept him from moving laterally as well as we might expect. Forward Adam Entrup was in position to tap in the rebound and the Irish had the lead in the 9th min.

The game continued in an attractive attacking mode for both teams although Catholic’s pressure was beginning to take it’s toll. In the 25th, Evan Craig (pictured) won a foot race in the left corner and turned into the box where he slipped his square ball across the face of the six yard box. Thieme went horizontal but only succeeded in knocking it down where Riley Harbach was happy to tap the loose ball into the net at the far post.

This Greenwood team is goal driven and they responded very well. A move into the offensive third led to a throw-in and Nick Hogan delivered a ball into the six yard box that Cory McCoy drove into the net, bringing the Jays back within one only a minute later.

The second half was not as kind to the Jays, already missing a pair of starters due to early season injuries, and Catholic took advantage of their depth to control possession and extend their lead in the 57th minute. Nick Kofron sent a 35 yard ball into the box from a set piece. Craig was sitting near the far post and redirected the ball into the net to score the final goal.

================ earlier report ========== game photos below ==============
The Jays, like many teams, are still attempting to identify a reliable scoring option although if they start looking for Devon Whitlock more consistently, I think they would have more success in that category. A 2-1 win over Bolivar two weeks ago is the highlight and they played Carthage close, losing 0-1 in OT.

Catholic has set some high standards this season, traveling to KC twice where they lost to Rockhurst (#1 Class 3 in KC) and narrowly to Pembroke Hill. Since then, 3 games with 3 wins and a 20-1 scoring advantage points to the need for a solid defensive strategy by Greenwood.
