The Standard: Battle of the Bums


By Patrick Mangin ‘24

Last Thursday, the Bears overcame the Panthers on primetime Thursday Night Football with a 16-13 victory. The game was a matchup of two bottom of the barrel teams desperately searching  for a win, but the Bears wanted it more.

The game started off hot for the Panthers with a 79-yard punt return for a touchdown, leaving Bears fans disappointed per usual. Both offenses greatly struggled for the rest of the first half with no more touchdowns being scored. However, the kickers shined with Bears kicker Cairo Santos, draining three field goals and Panthers kicker Eddy Pineiro making one.

A boring […]

The Standard: The Crusaders Roll on Homecoming

Last Friday, the Crusaders took on Montini Catholic for this season’s homecoming game. The three-win Crusaders had their playoff hopes on the line and they knew what was at stake.

The team had a great week of practice, competing hard everyday to get the players ready.

Cormac said, “The young people in our schools are future decision makers, future voters. It is important that their voices are heard.”

The Standard: Bears Week Two Sorrows


By Patrick Mangin ‘24

On Sunday, the Bears lost their week two matchup to the Buccaneers with a final score of 27-17. After a blowout loss in week one to the Packers, everyone was hoping for a bounce back win versus the Bucs, but we were all thoroughly disappointed.

The game started out in a great fashion for the Bears. Justin Fields and D.J. Moore connected on the first play of the game for a 33-yard gain, which eventually led to a Fields rushing touchdown to take a 7-3 lead. However, from that point on, we saw the same boring Bears offense from […]
