One thing you can always count on from the “Holy War” between Jesuit and Central Catholic – it will be a spirited game. That certainly was the case on Friday night at the home of the Crusaders. It wasn’t necessarily the prettiest game, but it was hard fought as Jesuit consistently held a lead from the beginning and then pulled away at the end for a 58-45 victory in their home opener.
Central Catholic played without star sophomore wing Darius Gakwasi, who was held out related to illness, but you got the sense that his presence wouldn’t have made too much difference as Jesuit seemed to be in control, running their motion offense effectively and knocking down open shots (21-for-40 field goals, .525).
