BIRMINGHAM — Three minutes.

In a season of close calls, that’s what separated the Birmingham Brother Rice soccer team from its sixth straight appearance in the Catholic League championship.

But in Tuesday night’s home game with the University of Detroit Jesuit, it was a goal with three minutes remaining in regulation that kept the Warriors on the outside looking in.

“You want to punch a wall right now, but that’s not going to solve anything,” coach Barry Brodsky said after a 1-1 tie with the Cubs. Rice had to win to earn a spot in next Wednesday’s Catholic League final. “Hopefully, we take some lessons from this and use it the rest of the season.”

Garrison Schilling scored seven minutes into regulation to give Rice an early 1-0 lead.

The Warriors made the goal stand the rest of the half and 37 minutes of the second half.

Then, with just three minutes remaining, U of D’s Drew Rozman scored on a scramble in front of the net.

“It’s kind of been our problem all year. We haven’t closed games out when we’ve had the chance,” Brodsky said. “It really came back to hurt us tonight.”

Rice, 4-4-2, has three regular-season games remaining. The Warriors take on Country Day at 7 p.m. Oct. 4 in Beverly Hills.

The Cubs, 12-7-1, face Warren De La Salle at 7 p.m. Oct. 9 in the A-B Championship game at Pontiac Notre Dame Prep.
