The star

Fenwick quarterback Gino Cavalieri completed 12 of 19 passes for 111 yards and connected with Danny Lattner for an 8-yard scored and with Robert Spillane on a 3-yard touchdown pass.

The moment

Needing two scores to tie late in the fourth quarter, Marmion coach Dan Thorpe passed up an opportunity to kick a field goal on fourth-and-4 at the Fenwick 9-yard line. The Cadets (0-2) went for it and gained a first down on Charlie Faunce’s 5-yard keeper. But Marmion could not covert on fourth-and-goal at the Fenwick 1 as Fenwick (2-0) stopped Faunce at the goal line on an attempted QB sneak with 4:38 to play.

The quote

“I am not abandoning ship. I know it has been two weeks. It’s tough, but I am not going to panic.” — Thorpe

The breakdown

The Fenwick defense was dominant in the first half limiting Marmion to one first down. The Friars outgained Marmion 237-29 in the first half. Marmion’s Jordan Glasgow rushed for 110 yards on 22 carries after gaining just seven yards in the first half.
