Noteworthy
United opened the 2014 season with five wins in their first six contests. The biggest of those was at Springfield on October 3 when the Golden Eagles soared to a 14-7 win.

The Eagles have relied on their power running game behind the workhorse backs of Caige Vincent, Coltan Antram, and Tyler Powers who have all rushed for over 600 yards. Vincent (1110 yards, 10 TDs) has led United in rushing five times this year. Antram (689 yards, 8 TDs) and Powers (612 yards, 10 TDs) have both carried the football for over 5 yards a tote this season.

The Irish began the season with a 1-2 mark but then ran off five straight victories. Late in the season, Ursuline was outscored by Mooney and St. Vincent-St. Mary by a combined total of 69-13 over the course of the last two weeks.

Ursuline has advanced to the playoffs in each of Larry Kempe’s first three seasons at the helm.
