UPLAND — The St. Monica Mariners will close its season tonight on the road against Western Christian.
Heading into the game 2-6 overall and 0-4 in Santa Fe League play, St. Monica has the opportunity to triple its win total from a year ago. It would be the most wins a St. Monica team has had since 2004-05 when the team went 4-6.
Scotty Kirkpatrick, Western Christian’s head coach, is impressed with the Mariners’ offense after attending St. Monica’s game against St. Anthony last week.
He said that St. Monica’s defense also performed well enough against St. Anthony to give him pause heading into tonight’s game at 7 p.m.
“I think they are on the verge of being a very good football team,” Kirkpatrick said. “They have some talent offensively.”
