CFC10 Non-Public Rankings (10): Defense leads the way for St. Joe’s

CFC100 Hamlin, Whyte score defensive touchdowns in victory

Clarkson gave their hosts from Cheshire an early 21-point lead which proved too much to overcome.  After Cheshire Academies early 21-0 lead, Clarkson clawed their way back with first half touchdowns by CFC100s Josiah McKoy, Olivier Muembi, and Clark Barnes.  A missed extra point made the halftime score 21-20 for the home team.  A scoreless third quarter led to a back-and-forth fourth quarter that saw the home team score to go up 28-20.  Clarkson responded with a Kevin Nsabua punt return TD however the 2-point convert failed.

St. Joseph traveled to Maryland in hopes of stopping their long losing streak.  The hosts, 3-5 Avalon Black Knights, were looking for a victory on senior’s night.  St. Joe’s defense led the way with a first half scoop & score by CFC100 Arthur Hamlin.  The second half saw safety Ian Whyte undercut a route and return it 70 yards for the pick-six touchdown.  The offense controlled the ball using a ground game led by the offensive line and tough runs by backs Connor Bornais and John Lubemba.

The Saints defeated the SMC Kerry Blues 42-26 to improve to 7-0 overall and clinch 1st place in the regular season standings. RB Adre Simmonds led the way scoring 2 TDs and rushing for over 100 yards. SBs Grant Campbell and CFC100 Wells Karabin also added long TD receptions, and kicker Kevin Desautels converted 4 field goals, including a 45 yarder. QB Dylan Tabone was once again tremendous, while the offensive line battled a tough SMC front 7. Defensively, DEs CFC100 Liam Gracey and Yiannis Spetsakis, LBs Angus Austgarden, Will Abbott, CFC100 Ian MacLean, and the aforementioned Karabin played solid against the potent SMC offence. CB Will Wang also played a great game, forcing a turnover and also contributing on special teams. The Saints will close out the regular season next Saturday at UCC.

Royal Imperial struggled against Bishop Sullivan who limited the Knights offense to minus 26 yards, one first down, causing four turnovers and building a 55-0 half time lead.  The Knights hope God is on their side in North Carolina next week.

A great afternoon today for a football game, with the Blues wanting to lock up second place in the league with the playoffs two weeks away. The Varsity team got off to a good start, with two field goals in the first two possessions. By the time that TCS got on the board, it was too late with the Blues leading comfortably 27-6 by then. However, TCS battled right to the end with the final score UCC 34 TCS 19. Next Saturday the Blues will host first place SAC before heading into the playoffs. (source:
