St. Vincent football found out they have more work to do.
Valle Catholic pulled away in the first half to hand the Indians their first loss of the season 67-7 Friday at Valle Catholic High School.
Despite the Warriors moving out the I-55 conference with the Indians, St. Vincent head coach Tim Schumer kept the game on the schedule as a “measuring stick” game, to see how his team stacked up against one of the top teams in the area.
“This game will help us later on, once we get into districts and run into some teams who are good,” Schumer said. “Having now faced Valle we know what to expect.”
St. Vincent managed to keep the game close for a time as the Indians’ lone touchdown came on a 19-yard pass from Christian Schaaf to senior Trevor Moonier to narrow the Valle advantage to 13-7 in the first quarter.
“They are very good and talented defensively,” Schumer said. “They put a lot of pressure on you and they are physical and aggressive up front. If there was any place to exploit something we thought, it may be in the passing game. You get a lot of one-on-one matchups because they put such an emphasis on getting after the quarterback.”
From there it was all Warriors.
