After a highly anticipated back and forth game between two CYO teams loaded with Baldwin students, the home team came out on top.

St. Gabe’s defeated St. Elizabeth 57-56  on Sunday night after stopping St. E’s Zach Remlinger at the rim on the last possession of the game.

“It’s relieving,” senior St. Gabe’s guard Colton Barr said. “I’m just glad we got the win.”

Barr fouled out in the fourth quarter, but fellow senior Johnny Staley stepped up. The crowd was full of Baldwin students and alumni, and Barr credited the crowd for helping them win.

“The atmosphere was awesome,” Barr said. “It was packed. We haven’t had a game like that this year, so it was exciting.”

Senior St. E’s guard/forward Colin Poe found an appreciation for the big game.

“It was fun playing against my boys,” Poe said. “At the end of the day we’re friends, but it’s another level of competitiveness.”

Both teams are looking forward to the rematch.

“I can’t wait to play them again and try to get another W,” Barr said.

“They’re beatable,” Poe said. “No one thought we could win this one. The next one is going to matter if we both win out to that point.”

The rematch will be Feb. 7 at St. E’s.
