Michael Brennan has been giving all he has for the St. Catherine’s High School boys soccer team. And St. Catherine’s coach Ben Lake has taken notice.
The senior defender and midfielder came off the bench to score a penalty kick and add an assist in the Angels’ 6-0 Metro Classic Conference victory Tuesday at Pershing Park. St. Catherine’s led 6-0 at halftime.
“He’s been working hard in our training sessions and he’s earning everything he’s getting,” Lake said.
Manny Barajas had two goals and an assist for the Angels (5-4-1, 2-0 MCC) and Brandon Stulo had a goal and an assist.
Peyton Johnson and Alberto Galvan combined for the shutout.
Kyle Schulz made seven saves for Lutheran (1-8-1, 0-2-1 MCC).
“We struggled to finish the first half,” Lutheran coach Kevin McNamara said. “We had a talk at halftime and I told them to keep their composure. After that, I was fairly pleased with how we played.”

TREMPER 3, PARK 0: Nobal Days, a 6-foot-9 sophomore, was a key presence in the Panthers 25-12, 25-18, 25-19 Southeast Conference loss to Kenosha Tremper at Park. Tremper is ranked sixth in the most recent Wisconsin Boys Volleyball Coaches Association state poll.
