Even though traditional state football power Cathedral built a 42-0 third-quarter lead in Friday’s Class 5A regional game at Whiteland, the host Warriors made sure the Fighting Irish knew why they came back in so many games this season.

Cathedral pulled several of its starters after building that lead, but the Warriors responded by scoring three touchdowns in the next nine minutes, cutting the deficit to 42-21 and forcing Cathedral coach Rick Streiff to re-insert his first-teamers.

Whiteland added another fourth-quarter touchdown, but the Irish scored two of their own to cruise to a 56-28 victory and claim their eighth straight regional title.
