LAKEVILLE | The wild ride has finally come to an all-too-soon end.

A 3-0 loss Saturday to Guerin Catholic in the Class A LaVille Semistate semifinal closed a long postseason run for the Andrean boys soccer team, just two wins short of playing for a state championship.

The loss also ended the 24-year career of 59ers head coach Pete Reist.

Reist decided in advance that this season would be his last, but he likely didn’t expect it to continue this long. His overachieving squad rode a pair of 1-0 wins in the LaVille Regional to a semistate appearance, but Guerin Catholic proved too tough a test for Andrean.

“They’re an excellent team,” Reist said of the Golden Eagles. “We were aware of their offensive firepower, but their midfield and their defense is excellent. They play a complete game. Their short passing game is outstanding. They don’t get rattled with a little bit of pressure put on them.

“We gave it our best. They didn’t let us do a lot of the things we’ve been able to do in the past five or six games. Credit to them.”

Guerin Catholic fired 19 shots at the Andrean defense – 11 on goal – while holding the 59ers to just one shot on goal. Doug Kaskie scored twice for the Golden Eagles and Jacob Cloran added the late third goal.

Chris Orozco made eight saves for Andrean in the loss.

“For the kids on this team, it was a great run,” Reist said. “I think that’s why, with 17 seniors on the team, you’re not seeing a bunch of heads bowed over there. They know they did an excellent job.”

Reist said it still hadn’t sunk in after Saturday’s loss that his coaching career is now over.

“Probably sometime next April or May, I might get the itch,” Reist said. “Hopefully, I’ll pick up a fishing pole and get where I can’t get near a soccer field.”
