OLH picked up its third straight win with a huge 5-0 shut out over St. Gerard on Monday at the Kerrville Soccer Complex.

Brian Casillas earned a hat trick (3 goals) and provided an assist., and Christian Harris and Stephen Grocki both scored, with Mason Sirianni recording an assist. he win completes a sweep over the Royals this season.

"Our goalkeepers Hunter Taylor and Christian only recorded three saves between them in the entire game which is a result of another strong defensive outing. It was a game where we got to rest some key players and also give some guys on our bench more playing time than usual," said OLH head coach Garrett Kull.

Kull indicated resting some starters during the win was helpful as OLH (7-4, 6-4) prepares for its biggest tests this week.

The Hawks play the number one and two teams in the district to end the season. OLH goes to Schertz on Thursday to face John Paul II, and are at New Braunfels Christian (NBC) on Saturday. The Hawks lost to John Paul II earlier in January. They also beat NBC just two weeks ago.

"With the district mathematically out of reach, we’re still focused on fighting for a playoff spot and a chance to host a game at home," Kull said.

"The team has really committed itself to trying to send the seniors out on a high note and whether or not we're in the playoffs we have to embrace playing teams that are good.

"I don’t think anyone is intimidated by the task ahead and that as a team we are eager to compete in these big games. We control our fate. Win or lose, I’m proud of the boys on the season they’ve had so far. Hopefully we can continue our run of f and earn a chance to play in the TAPPS tournament," said Kull.
