BOARDMAN OH- Cardinal Mooney didn’t miss a beat on Wednesday night in their regional semifinal matchup. After dropping out of the tournament earlier than expected last season, the Cardinals have been hungry to prove what they can do this season. Their opponent Wickliffe couldn’t keep up in a 4-0 Mooney victory.
Junior Nick Pregibon was a force to be reckoned with. His first goal came about half way through the first half. Once the first goal was scored, any nerves that Mooney had washed away. They stayed on the attack the rest of the game. Even though Wickliffe withstood the storm for a while, with 15 minutes left in the second half, Mooney blasted three goals. Pregibon scored two more, and Mason Janis added one in the final seconds.
With the win Mooney has advanced to the regional championship. They’ll square up with Beachwood on Saturday at 4:00 at Howland High School.
