"It takes the kids out of the game; they get their heads down a little bit."
Catholic went 27:59 without a goal after Trupo completed his hat trick. Trupo then added his fourth goal and Revercomb added another to complete the scoring with 36:05 left.
"Once we got that third goal I felt pretty good," Fox said. "Soccer is a weird game because you give up a goal and the momentum starts to swing and you never know how it can turn out."
Catholic edged Bridgeport, 2-1, in Tuesday's state semifinals.
"We always struggle with come out hard and scoring quickly," Revercomb said. "But I think after (Trupo's) first goal the game changed. He scored two right after that and the game was pretty much over by halftime."
Revercomb finished with one goal and one assist. Lucas Gocke had two assists and Domenic Cipollone and Mitchell Stanley assisted on the second-half goals.
The Irish have plenty of talent returning, including three more years of Trupo, so becoming the state's first program to win five consecutive state titles is the next goal.
Wheeling Park won four straight titles from 1998-2001.
"We like to have a target on our back," Revercomb said. "They haven't hit it yet."
