The second-seeded Cadets defeated the third-ranked Titans on Saturday, November 9 in the semifinal, with a score of 56-28. The top-seeded Saints beat #4 FUMA 39-19 on that same day. This put the Saints in the Final against the Cadets. St. Chris is ranked #1 due to a record of 10-1, while the Cadets are ranked #2 with a record of 8-2. Cadet Jake Bartholomew '21 stated "I have faith in our team, and I believe we will come out with a win."
The Cadets have had a strong season, with their only losses being Georgetown Prep and Avalon, which were early in the season. The Saints lost early on to Trinity, but other than this loss, they have a had an undefeated season. The Cadets are back in the hands of returning quarterback Jay Woolfolk who was suffering a severe knee injury. Cadet Brian Daughtry '20 stated, "I am very happy for Jay to be back. He helps us on the offensive side tremendously."
Woolfolk made his return against Trinity on Saturday with a bang, scoring two touchdowns on the ground and one via the air. His total yards passing was 195 yards, and he rushed for 72 yards. The Cadets defense held the Titans to only 77 yards rushing. The Cadets' total yards gained was 429 while Trinity's was only 287. Nick Turner also had a good game with a pair of touchdowns. If Benedictine plays like it did against Trinity the Cadets have a good chance of walking out with a win.
The title game will be played at St. Chris this Saturday, at 1 p.m. No passes will be accepted and the price of admission is ten dollars.
