Cathedral Takes Down Canton McKinley

Canton McKinley had the advantage of not having to travel too far for their game against Indianapolis Cathedral. Unfortunately for the Bulldogs, Cathedral had the advantage everywhere else as the Fighting Irish won 34-13.

It took Indianapolis Cathedral some time, but the Fighting Irish eventually found their stride and rolled to a 34-13 victory over Canton McKinley at Fawcett Stadium on Saturday.

The game got off a slow start as the two teams battled to a scoreless 1st quarter. Cathedral took over in the second, when after a 35-yard Scott Miller field goal broke the tie, junior quarterback Kofi Hughes found Barry Flynn in the back of the end zone. Flynn made a beautiful grab over two defenders to put his team up 10-0. Miller would add another field goal to make it 13-0 Cathedral going into halftime.

They would fully take control of the game in the 2nd half when Hughes used his legs and found the end zone twice, the first on a 6-yard run the 3rd, the second, a 1 yard plunge early in the 4th quarter.

McKinley added two late touchdowns, but it was too little too late.

Hughes finished 11 of 20 passing for 147 yards and a touchdown, he also had 85 rushing yards and two scores. Flynn caught four passes for 37 yards and the touchdown from Hughes and Alaun Morro lead the way for McKinley with 44 yards on the ground. MVP of the Game: Indianapolis Cathedral QB Kofi Hughes and OT Kyle Koehne

Scout's Take: Hughes had an excellent game both running and passing the ball. McKinley could not contain him and he was able to make plays both within the frame of the offense and when things broke down. Koehne was a big reason Hughes and the rest of the offense were so successful, he controlled his man nearly every snap and did not even come close to allowing a sack. Congratulations to both players.
