“At half time we came in there and told the kids to settle down, let’s just go out there and play our game in the second half… And that is exactly what they did. We shut them out in the second half the offense was able to put up some points." Head coach John Peacock said.

Up next, a St. Thomas Aquinas squad that has outscored their opponents this postseason 163-20.

“Obviously the stakes get a little higher each week, this being the State semifinals and the winner getting the chance to play in the State finals. We have been practicing very hard and we are excited to play in it.” Peacock said.

“St. Thomas being this powerhouse that is something we have to get passed... We beat them last year so that should be no problem for us.” Senior Zack Sessa said.
