YOUNGSTOWN, OH – The Ursuline Irish started the year off on a very good note in Week 1, defeating the Brookfield Warriors 52-14 in a highly anticipated matchup at Stambaugh Stadium. There were many new faces that stood out for a team that lost some of the most decorated athletes in program history after last year’s Division IV State Championship Game loss, a game in which Head Coach Dan Reardon stresses does too much overshadowing on a season in which the Irish did so much to return to the state title game for the first time since 2010.
Though Ursuline showed a lot of fans around the valley just what they could be capable of, they face a tough test in Week 2 as they will welcome Parma Padua Franciscan to Youngstown on Friday night. Coach Reardon discussed some of the threats that Padua brings to the field, as well as some of the things that the Irish will have to improve on heading into Friday night’s showdown.
All that and so much more in this week’s episode of Ursuline Irish football coach’s corner with head coach, Dan Reardon!
