THE SKINNY

Second-seeded Harvard scored the first three touchdowns of the game and cruised to a 40-22 victory over St. Edward in the first round of the Class 4A state playoffs.

TURNING POINT

Already up 7-0, Harvard (10-0) recovered a St. Edward fumble at the Green Wave 26 early in the second quarter. Jose Mejia then ran for 23 yards to set up a 3-yard touchdown run by Christian Kramer to put the Hornets up 14-0.

THE STARS

Harvard quarterback Peyton Schneider threw for 155 yards and two touchdowns. The Hornets kept the chains moving with the running back tandem of Kramer (23 carries, 120 yards) and Mejia (15 carries, 93 yards)

BY THE NUMBERS

The Hornets’ defense forced five turnovers and held the Green Wave’s all-time leading rusher Davontae Elam to just 33 yards on the ground.

QUOTABLE

“They won the line of scrimmage. We thought we had a plan to run the ball, but that’s hard to do when you don’t win the line of scrimmage. They forced us into doing things we don’t do as well.” — St. Edward coach Mike Rolando
