Both Cathedral and Bishop Dwenger started new quarterbacks in Saturday's football game between the two schools at Zollner Stadium.
Because of an injury to starter Corey Babb, the Irish turned to Connor Rice as their signal-caller. Rice passed for 156 yards and two touchdowns and ran in for another score.
"We are fortunate to be deep at some positions," said Cathedral coach Rick Streif, who was also without his starting linebacker, Quincy Giles. "We had some kids step up and play well."
The Irish (3-2) won the game 42-3.
Mike Fiacable got the start in the place of Dalton Wheeler for the Saints, mainly because coach Chris Svarczkopf had tailored the offense somewhat for Fiacable, a sophomore.
Wheeler, a senior, had started the first four games for the Saints (3-2).
"We came in with some packages this week (for both players)," Svarczkopf said. "We varied that a little bit when we put Dalton in to start the second half, and that cost us a little bit with the fumble. I wanted to go with the senior to start the second half."
