Guerin Catholic Claims 2nd Straight Boys Championship
After a scoreless first half, Guerin Catholic's offense came alive late in the game to help the Golden Eagles secure a back-to-back state championship with a 3-0 victory over Tri-West Hendricks.
Senior Luke Bestard started the scoring in the 58th minute of the game, and Guerin never looked back. Then, in the 71st minute, Zach Garvey and Bestard went on to score two goals just 21 seconds apart and put the game out of reach.
The Tri-West offense was kept at bay much of the game as Guerin Catholic sophomore goal keeper Tarcissio Trujillo recorded a shut out with three saves.
The Golden Eagles, coached by John Cech, wrap up their state finals run with a record of 22-2. Playing in its first state championship match, Tri-West Hendricks finished its season 20-1-1 under coach Jeff Denny.
