East Catholic jumped on conference rival Northwest Catholic early with a 10-3 lead, as Jake Tellers scored five goals in the first half. The Eagles (9-6) would hold serve and down the Lions (5-11) 16-5.

”Well, coming into this game, a rival catholic school, you always want to win,” Tellers, a sophomore, said.
”My teammates were creating space for me and then {it was all about} just being able to finish and shoot at a high percentage.”

Tellers ended the game with seven goals. Teammate Connor Race, a junior, had a hat-trick.

The Eagles have one game left against RHAM. And, that game is Saturday. They should be confirmed for the CCC Tournament with a win. After CCC’s, they will move on to states.

Sophomores James Nicolas and Cal Skwara scored twice each for the Lions in the game. Northwest Catholic’s season is over.
