    Cincinnati (OH) Moeller at #2 Covington Catholic Predictions 12/12/17

    Big time interstate showdown Tuesday when the Moeller Crusaders roll into Park Hills to play a frosh/JV/varsity triple header. CovCath is undefeated at all three levels, but will most likely not end the day without picking up at least one loss and maybe two or three.

    The game will be broadcast on CovCath radio here>>> Moe @ CovCath I-Radio

    Live stats provided by Moeller will be available here>>> Archbishop Moeller at Covington Catholic

    With multiple D-I players on both teams, the game should be a tough ticket.

    Moeller ranked 17th in the country by USA today:

    Based on prior games between the teams, first team to 60 wins?

    This is Covington Catholic's chance to put themselves on the national map. Good luck to the Colonels.

    Sounds like Park Hills will be crowded Tuesday.

    They were selling pre-sale tickets Friday night. Could be a sellout.

    Not often you see a game in Northern Kentucky where players are going to Texas, Xavier, Iowa, and Wright State.

    Can the Colonels handle the press? They struggled last year at Moeller, then again against Lexington Catholic. I would put Walters or Thelen in the middle and try to pass their way out. Ruthsatz and Fredrick both tried to dribble out against Lex Cath, I would expect similar results against Moe.

    I believe Moeller is #1 in Ohio, CovCath a nearly unanimous #2 in KY, so this thing should be fantastic. Really looking forward to it.

    I vote to put all Moeller fans in the cafeteria and let them watch it on a projector. I was given similar treatment last year. They asked if I was for Cov Cath, then preceded to tell me they were out of lower level seats and I would have to go to the balcony. I ended watching the game in the rafters behind plexiglass. It felt like a hockey game, the lower bowl was about 20% empty that night. Go Colonels!

    It's a GCL thing I presume. Exact same treatment at Elder as well. Makes it that much more special when the visiting team wins!
