St. Xavier smothers Male for a big win

When the St. Xavier defense delivered another red zone stop late in the fourth quarter Friday night at Male High School, the Tigers’ student section went on the offensive.

Like last time!the students yelled in unison, their cheers echoing through an otherwise silent Veterans Memorial Stadium.

In a rematch of the 2021 Class 6A State Championship, St. X once again prevailed over the Bulldogs, 24-10. The Tigers improved to 3-0 with their 15th straight win and 800th overall in program history.

“This is just a barometer of where we are,” St. X head coach Kevin Wallace said after the game. “(If) we play again in November, we’re all going to be totally different. I mean, you don’t know what injuries are going to do; you don’t know how people mature (or) how well they’re playing in November, so those are the ones that you really remember, the ones that come in the playoffs. We want to keep getting better as a football team.”
