  • St. Patrick’s fine finish leads to St. Viator’s first loss Dec 7, 2012 10:40 PM
    The St. Viator boys basketball team fought to the end but ended up losing to St. Patrick 58-55 at Cahill Gymnasium on Friday. It was both teams' opener in what will be a rugged East Suburban Catholic Conference this season. "Nobody, I think, can go 8-0 in the conference," said St. Viator coach Mike Howland. "At the end of the game we didn't get the stops we needed. We just didn't execute down the stretch."

  • Cary-Grove steamrolls St. Patrick Nov 3, 2012 9:15 PM
    Not since Week 3 had fullback Kyle Norberg, quarterback Quinn Baker and running back Ryan Mahoney been on the field running the triple option for Cary-Grove at the same time. A combination of injuries were the primary reason as to why the trio missed 7 weeks of action together, but when all three converge on the field as they did against St. Patrick on Saturday, there's something real special in the air at Cary-Grove and the rest of Class 6A could be in big trouble. In the Trojans's 49-21 steamroll at Cary's Al Bohrer Field in the second round of the Class 6A playoffs, the three-headed monster of Norberg, Mahoney and Baker combined to rush for 446 of Cary-Grove's 497 yards on the ground. Behind 197 yards and 3 touchdowns from Norberg, 161 yards rushing and a touchdown from Baker and 88 yards and a touchdown from Mahoney the Trojans rolled on.

  • Healthy Cary-Grove gears up for St. Pat’s Nov 2, 2012 8:42 PM
    Securing the football will be a top priority when No. 8 St Patrick (7-3) visits No. 1 Cary-Grove (10-0) in a Class 6A second-round playoff game Saturday at 1 p.m. Both teams specialize in take-aways. Cary-Grove has forced 26 turnovers. The opportunistic Shamrocks have forced 31. "That's the old Bears strategy of getting turnovers, getting the ball back," St. Patrick coach Dan Galante said. "If we can take away possessions and keep their offense off the field, that's a positive." St. Patrick rode its ball-hawking strategy to third place in the East Suburban Catholic Conference behind Benet Academy and Marist. The Shamrocks defeated Benet 17-16 in Week 3, handing the Redwings their only loss. They are tasked with limiting the Trojans' flexbone option offense, directed by senior quarterback Quinn Baker.

  • Carmel, Joliet Catholic lead tough ESCC Aug 24, 2011 8:38 PM

  • St. Patrick gets defensive at Conant Mar 2, 2011 11:17 PM
    Defense was the theme as Conant hosted St. Patrick in a Class 4A regional semifinal Wednesday night. “It was just two teams that played really tough defense,” said Cougars coach Tom McCormack, a St. Patrick alumnus. “The rebounding difference St. Pat’s had (32-14) ultimately was the difference in the game.”

  • St. Patrick beats St. Viator Feb 12, 2011 11:33 PM
    St. Viator found out Saturday night what St. Patrick’s boys basketball team can do when Jacob Williams and Kortney Darby both come to play. Williams and Darby showcased their talent in sweeping past the Lions 68-58 in Chicago. Williams scored 26 points with 11 rebounds and Darby scored 18 points with 12 rebounds as the Shamrocks improved to 12-11 and 5-5 in the East Suburban Catholic. The Lions dropped to 12-9 and 4-6. “They are two really good players,” said St. Viator coach Joe Majkowski. St. Viator hung tough and trailed 15-14 after the first quarter. The Lions led 22-20 with 4:30 left in the first half when St. Patrick coach Mike Bailey switched to a 1-3-1 zone defense. “St. Viator was getting inside and getting some penetration,” said Bailey. “Our extended 1-3-1 took away a lot of their penetration. The other thing that made a difference is that we didn’t put them at the line (Viator was 16-for-23 in a 54-51 overtime win Dec. 10). They had to earn their points from the outside.” The Lions ended up shooting 19 of 46 while the Shamrocks hit 22 of 42 overall and 12 of 17 from the field in the second half. St. Patrick hit 9 fo 9 free throws in the first quarter and 23 of 29 for the game to stay ahead. With Kevin Walsh providing most of the Lions offense with 24 points including four 3-pointers, St. Viator tied the score at 39-39 with 2:19 left in the third quarter on 2 free throws by D.J. Morris (10 points). The Shamrocks finished the quarter with a 10-0 run which was started by a 3-point basket by Williams and ended with two baskets by Mahlike Graham. St. Pat’s Elijah Watson gave the Shamrocks a 59-43 with 3:34 left in the game. While Colin Carney, Walsh and Morris all hit 3 pointers down the stretch, the Shamrocks hit 7 of 9 free throws. Chris Myjak added 12 points for the Lions. “With their 1-3-1 zone they made it tough on us with their arm length and quickness,” said Majkowski. “We just didn’t execute when we needed to on both ends of the floor.”

  • Benet adjusts to slow pace Feb 4, 2011 11:59 PM
    If Benet’s boys basketball team has learned one thing this season, it’s to be ready for anything. In Friday’s East Suburban Catholic Conference tussle against St. Patrick, the Shamrocks came to Lisle intent on squeezing the life out of every grinding possession. Effective as the slow-down strategy was, however, Benet again found the answer. Despite being held to its lowest point total this season, Benet also allowed its fewest points defensively in a 36-23 win over St. Patrick. Combined with Carmel’s upset win over Notre Dame, the Redwings (23-0, 9-0) wrapped up a share of their second straight ESCC title with three games still remaining. “It was a slow-paced game,” said Benet guard Matt Parisi, who scored all of his 9 points in the second half. “We didn’t actually expect them to slow it down like that. They just wanted to slow us down and contain us and just try to make us play their style. We still pulled it out despite what they tried to throw at us.” St. Patrick (11-9, 4-5) ran more than two minutes off the clock before taking a 2-0 lead on Elijah Watson’s putback. After a week away from the court, Benet senior guard Dave Sobolewski returned from a back injury and scored all 8 of his points in the first quarter on his first three shots. Sobolewski’s final basket, a 3-pointer, gave Benet the lead for good at 9-6 midway through the first quarter. The Northwestern-bound point guard played the rest of the game but took only four more shots. “You know, I’m in pain but it’s definitely improving,” Sobolewski said. “I couldn’t have played at this time last week, so I’m excited. I’ll take care of it tonight and tomorrow morning, and I’ll be ready to play Marist tomorrow night.” Benet, despite 1-of-10 second-quarter shooting, took an 18-12 lead to the half after holding the Shamrocks to a single second-quarter point on a free throw with 1:07 left. Three-pointers by Parisi and Frank Kaminsky, who scored a game-high 11 points, at the start of the fourth quarter put the Redwings ahead 31-23. Holding St. Patrick scoreless for the final 6:26 of the game, Benet closed with an 8-0 run. “You’re going to give yourself a real good chance to win if you only give up 23 points,” said Benet coach Gene Heidkamp. “Even though it wasn’t pretty, our guys found a way to get the job done.”

  • St. Viator outlasts St. Patrick in OT Dec 10, 2010 11:55 PM
    In big games, big players show their mettle. On Friday night at St. Viator’s Cahill Gymnasium, the Lions’ D.J. Morris and Chris Myjak came up with correspondingly big efforts. Morris scored 18 points, including 5 points in overtime, while Myjak netted 11 points and hauled down 15 rebounds in St. Viator’s 54-51 overtime win against St. Patrick. The Lions improved to 5-0 and 1-0 in the East Suburban Catholic. The Shamrocks dropped their third in a row and fell to 2-3 and 0-2. “St. Pat’s came out ready for us,” said Lions coach Joe Majkowski. “Both teams had big plays. It was a typical ESCC battle.” “Coach told us that we had to be ready to play,” said Morris. “He told us that they would be physical and we had to be physical right back. We really had to push it to the limit tonight. We weren’t ready for them at first, but we fought back.” The Shamrocks led 16-11 after the first quarter and built a 22-11 lead with 6:49 left in the half following a 3-pointer from Kortney Darby (9 points, 6 rebounds). Brian Wilhite came off the bench for the Lions and helped ignite a run with a layup after recovering a loose ball, plus a 3-pointer. That made the score 24-22 in favor of St. Pat. Frank Laterza then stole the ball to tie the score at 24-24. “Wilhite and Laterza really came up with some big plays,” said Majkowski. “They got us back in the game.” Myjak, who had only 2 rebounds in the first half, became a force on the boards in the second half. “They were hurting us on the boards in the first half,” said Myjak. “They were outrebounding us, and we had to get tougher. Coach got on us at halftime about that. D.J. has really picked it up, being the point guard. We feel confident in what he can do. “ St. Viator opened a 34-29 lead with 4:40 left in the third quarter before the Shamrocks closed the gap at the end of the quarter to 36-34. Morris helped the Lions open a 6-point lead at 42-36 with a 3-pointer and a jumper in the lane with 5:22 left. St. Patrick’s Guy DiBalsamo nailed a 3-pointer with :34 left to tie the game at 45-45. The Shamrocks had a chance to win, but a shot in the lane was missed by Jacob Williams. The Lions controlled the early part of the overtime as Myjak scored from underneath. Morris follwed with 2 free throws and a layup for a 51-45 lead. With St. Viator leading 53-47 with :48 left, Williams (16 points, 5 rebounds) scored twice within nine seconds on baskets after Lions turnovers. The second basket with :25 left put the score at 53-51. Another Shamrocks steal was followed by a turnover to give the ball back to the Lions with :13 left. Morris was fouled and hit 1 of 2 free throws. Mahlike Graham’s 3-point attempt fell short and Myjak grabbed the rebound as time expired. “St. Pats had some some big athletes and they collapsed on Myjak,” said Majkowski. “They gave him a rough time, but he’ll be better for it. DJ had been sick during the week and he gutted it out. He really came up with some good opportunities in the second half.”

  • Prospect comes up short in OT Nov 26, 2010 11:48 PM
    Despite starting out the season 0-2, Prospect boys basketball coach John Camardella feels upbeat. “We come to the St. Patrick Tournament to learn about ourselves and what we have to do better,” said Camardella. “In November and December, we’re trying to learn wins and losses.” The Knights took a tough lesson Friday, falling 75-69 to the host Shamrocks in overtime. Mike LaTulip (27 points, 4 assists) connected on 2 two free throws with 33 seconds left in regulation for the Knights to tie the game at 64-64. Prospect then received a break when the Shamrocks’ Royale Ewing (14 points) traveled with 1.1 left, but LaTulip’s halfcourt shot fell short. Ewing made up for his miscue by scoring the first basket in overtime. Grant DePalma stole the ball moments later but missed the layup. The Knights missed two attempts underneath on rebounds before Elijah Watson was fouled and hit 2 free throws for St. Patrick. “That was a big turnaround,” said Camardella. “If we tie the score there, who knows?” The Shamrocks capitalized on the next two Prospect misfires from the field as Jacob Williams (10 points, 6 rebounds) scored and Kortney Darby (26 points, 6 rebounds) hit 2 free throws for a 72-64 lead with 1:28 remaining. “Darby is so improved from last year,” said Camardella. “His outside jumper really added to his game. Their defense was very good. They clogged up the lanes on us with their wingspan. We were able to get a few backdoor baskets, but not enough.” “Last year we would have lost a game like this,” said Shamrocks coach Mike Bailey. “Ewing really showed his competitiveness when he hit the shot to start the overtime. Darby is just a warrior out there, just like LaTulip. We had to find a way to hold (LaTulip) down after his first half (18 points). We switched Mahlike Graham and Williams on him to slow him down.” While LaTulip scored just 9 second-half points, Terry Redding (14 points, 8 rebounds) and DePalma (10 points) provided help. “We have some great chemistry and smart players on this team,” said LaTulip. “They switched defenses on me alot in the second half, and they came to us with a chest-to-chest defense. I think playing teams like St..Pat and Oak Park are only going to make us better.” The contest was so close that there were 14 ties and 28 lead changes. The Shamrocks’ biggest lead was 4 points and Prospect’s was 3 until St.Patrick scored the first 8 points in overtime. The Knights face Chicago Senn (0-2) on Saturday night at St. Patrick.
