Roncalli’s football rivalry with Cathedral isn’t in need of extravagant introductions.
Name the year, and there’s a better-than-even chance the Rebels and Irish played at some point of the regular season, during the postseason or both. Every step of the way, regardless where the game was played, blood — traditional and bad — has
been spilled, feelings stepped on with cleated footwear.
Roncalli detests Cathedral. The Irish can’t stand the Rebels.
Let the good times roll.
Even time can’t dilute the unmistakable bitterness of a series that resumes tonight at Tech High School with No. 3 Roncalli taking on No. 7 and two-time defending state champion Cathedral in the title game of a Class 4A sectional.
