"Our seniors really played well and showed a lot of leadership," said Neace. "Co-captain Brody Wilson was really a key for our success. He played four years and is an amazing kid."
The other co-captain Josh Fiscus received high praise from the coach. "He was just a work horse for us," said Neace.
Senior back Thomas Bradley was one of the Cardinal defenders who stepped up as Northeast Dubois put on the pressure late in the game. "He played well and has really been a blessing," said Neece.
An injury kept a fourth senior Dylan Walker from playing. "He scored some key goals for us late in the season before he was hurt," said Neace.
The WC seniors celebrated and savored the sectional win. "It was a great win for the team, especially after getting knocked out last year," said Wilson.
"I'm really proud of the team," added Fiscus. "We came out and worked hard. This win feels good and we're not done yet."
