Cathedral spoils Roncalli’s best campaign since 2005


Roncalli’s best football season in seven years came to an end Friday night, against the team directly responsible for ending five of the Rebels’ past six seasons.

Class 4A No. 7 Cathedral bolted to a 21-0 first-quarter lead, taking advantage of an onside kick, punt return for a touchdown and four interceptions en route to a 34-7 victory against the third-ranked Rebels in the Class 4A sectional championship game.

An estimated crowd of 7,000 fans watched at Tech High School.

The win catapulted the Fighting Irish (7-5) into Friday’s regional, when they will host No. 4 Mount Vernon (Fortville). Roncalli finished 9-3, and its nine wins were the program’s most since the 2005 squad finished 12-3 and advanced to the Class 4A state championship game.
