“This was the first time all year that we played a complete game,” said McAleavey.

“Our offense and defense played great. Our offense was balanced today and we were able to move the ball around well. Wheeling Jesuit’s close defense was very good and it forced us to have to find the best matchups on the field, something I think we did really well today. We came into the game preaching to our team to capitalize on our opportunities and the guys went out and did it and we walked away with the victory.”

More information on the game will follow when the box score is received from Wheeling Jesuit.
