&uot;This was a district game so this was good for us to win by as many goals as we could in case of a tiebraker,&uot; said Cathedral coach Paul Kettering said.

&uot;This was the first time we played against Wesson so we didn’t know what to expect.&uot;

Wesson’s only goal of the game came on a penalty kick by Brandon Starnes with just 5:28 left in the first half.

Minor scored his second goal of the game with just over two minutes left in the first half to give Cathedral a 5-1 lead.

The Cobras had only six shots for the entire game, while Cathedral had an astonishing 42 shots for the game.

Just 21 seconds into the second half, Dane Peters scored to increase the lead to 6-1 and the rout continued from there.

Ian Doherty scored on a corner kick. Stubbs had his second goal of the game just six minutes later. Jamie Ford her two goals of the game in the game in the second half. Jonathan Elliott also scored a goal in the second half.

&uot;We had a team meeting before the game and I told them that the St. Al game (which Cathedral lost 3-1) would not take precedent over our main objective, and that is to win the district,&uot; said Kettering.

. &uot;I am happy with the way we played.&uot;

Cathedral improved to 3-3 overall and 2-0 in district and will host North Pike Thursday night.

&uot;North Pike has won the district the last four or five years since we’ve been playing soccer, so this will be the most important game for us this season,&uot; coach Kettering said.
