Wildcats blowout Lutheran North

The Futbol Cats squared off against Lutheran North for their second conference game of the year, The contest ended with a blowout win ending the game with a score of 7-0 in favor the boys in blue, improving the Wildcats record to 2-3 on the season (1-1 conference).

The Wildcats shared the ball very well with each other all throughout the contest. The Cats held possession with a favor of 80% to Lutheran North’s 20%.

Danny Sacco started off the scoring with a goal off an assist from Luke Heintz. Sacco said, “I was really pumped when I scored, even though I stole a goal from Luke, since it was my first varsity goal.”

The scoring was spread out amongst the team pretty fairly. The Sacco brothers each had a goal and Luke LInam put up two. Liam Lloyd, Chris George, and Nathan Laughlin rounded off the scoring each with one goal.

The Futbol Cats’ starting lineup looked a little bit different this go around. With 3 regular starters out for an extended period of time due to injuries. The hit that the Cats are taking isn’t a small one. Joey Keane sustained a hamstring injury and he’ll be missing up to 5 weeks. Senior, Trent Tarantino suffered a concussion and will be missing up to 2 weeks, and Erik Bergman broke his knee and will most likely be out for the remainder of his Senior season.

Senior, Luke Heintz said, “We’ve got a banged up team right now, which really sucks. Especially when the players injured are key guys for the team’s success this season. Our mentality is the next man up. This adversity isn’t going to slow us down.”

The Futbol Cats look to start life without Bergman, Keane, and Tarantino, next Tuesday against Mccluer North at home. Pop out at 4:15.
