With almost 30 seniors on the varsity football team, the senior night football game was one to watch. After last week’s 21-2 win over the Cardinal Gibbons Chiefs – a huge improvement from their marginal three point victory over the Chiefs last year – the Patriots went into the Friday night lights to continue their winning streak.
Early into the game the Patriots ran up the clock, the score sitting at 14-6 with six minutes remaining in the first quarter. By the time the second quarter was halfway through, another touchdown brought the score to 21-6 in favor of the Patriots.
Considering it’s senior night, the seniors were ready to impress. Seniors Mark Fletcher and Brandon Inniss came in clutch with a touchdown each, while senior David Vadala grabbed an 85 yard pick six, meaning he intercepted the ball and ran it to the end zone for a touchdown. On the defensive side, Vadala led the tackle count with seven tackles, followed by seniors Damari Brown, Andrew Klis and Victor King with five each.
The game ended up a blowout with the final standing at 42-18. This win was not just another victory, but a stepping stone on the way to states.
