|Cathedral loses heartbreaker|
Losing your Homecoming game is bad enough. Losing that Homecoming game to archrival St. Aloysius is downright disheartening.
Chris Lewis tossed an 11-yard touchdown pass to Ryno Martin-Nez with 17 seconds to play Friday as St. Al defeated archrival Cathedral 31-28.
It was the first loss of the season for the Green Wave (3-1), who have a schedule in which every game is a region contest.
"If we let this hang over our heads too long we could have another three or four losses before we know it," said Cathedral coach Craig Beesley. "We just have to wipe it away."
St. Al built a 14-point halftime lead, watched Cathedral tie it at 21 going into the fourth quarter and then the action heated up.
Adam Thornton booted a 34-yard field goal early in the fourth quarter to put the Flashes up 24-21. The Green Wave drove down the field and scored a TD on fourth-down pass from Preston Edwards to Daniel Huffines to take a 28-24 lead with 1:17 to play.
Cathedral tried a squib kick that was fielded by St. Al's Michael McKnight, who returned it to the 50.
With no timeouts and less than a minute to play, the Flashes (3-1) drove to the Cathedral 11-yard line behind a pair of Lewis pass completions. Lewis, a senior starting at QB for the third straight year, made the final one count for a score. Cathedral got within 13-7 at the end of the first quarter, but Lewis hit Martin-Nez on a 33-yard TD pass in the second quarter.
"There are some things we wish we would have done different, but in the heat of the moment we thought we made the right call," Beesley said.
Cathedral hosts Bogue Chitto Friday.
"Now we will see what we are made of and what kind of leadership we have," Beesley said.
"It's going to be another tough game. They run spread offense. They are big up front and do a lot of trap blocking. We need make something good happen early to erase any doubt in the kids' minds about last week."
