One is already at the top of the mountain while the other is trying to get there.
In the end, the team on top came out on top in a great match Saturday afternoon as Holy Cross rallied past Archbishop Rummel 2-1 in Metairie.
Christopher Wallace put Rummel on top with a goal in the first half before the Tigers got the equalizer on a header by star Ryan Jeanfreau in the second half.
