Cardinals ready for Vincennes Rivet in regional

For the second time in the last three years, the Washington Catholic boys soccer team will play in the Class A regional.

The Cardinals (13-5-1) defeated Shoals and host Northeast Dubois by a combined score of 5-2 to capture the school’s second sectional championship in the program’s history. Washington Catholic will matchup with Vincennes Rivet (11-8-1) Thursday at 5 p.m. CDT at Gibson Southern. The Cardinals are quite familiar with the Patriots.

“We beat them 4-3 on their field,” said Washington Catholic coach Wayne Neace. “It was a close game and we had a save by Jon Mitchell with two seconds left on a point blank shot that would have tied it. They’re a good team, it’s going to be a battle.”

If the Cardinals were to win, they would face the winner of Forest Park (11-3-3)-Evansville Mater Dei (7-11-1) Saturday at 12 p.m. CDT in the regional championship. Washington Catholic has played well lately with a 8-0-1 record in its last nine games, which saw them clinch its fourth straight Blue Chip conference championship.

“We played around with the positioning early in the season until we found the lineup that has worked well,” Neace said. “Everyone is getting comfortable and we’re starting to come along — that’s been the difference in the second half of the season.”

During the regular season, junior Blaine Fuhs led the Cardinals with 39 goals, which continued Washington Catholic’s tradition under Neace of a strong offensive attack. The offense has transitioned nicely from last year’s 45-goal season from Colton Reed.

Fuhs’ creative offensive attack has been helped by seniors Josh Fiscus and Brody Wilson.

“We need to be aggressive for 80 minutes,” Neace said.
