    Default beat holy family?

    The coach is training a girls' soccer team on the field urging them to move faster and he says "beat holy family", I think it's either an idiom or an opponent team's name. Is it an idiom?

    g.w
    soccer coach - Look, abby, you're dragging your feet!
    Come on! Look alive! Not gonna beat holy family looking
    like that, girls.

    "Holy Family" (capitalized) would be the name of school. Surely a private, Catholic one.
