Marist hangs on to top rival Rice

SHARE Marist hangs on to top rival Rice

The star

Marist running back Peter Andreotti carried the ball 20 times for 204 yards and two touchdowns. His 71-yard run set up another score in the second half.

The moment

Rual Boles sack of Brother Rice quarterback Matt Page led to a fumble, which was scooped up and returned for a touchdown by Marist’s Mike Layer and extended the RedHawks (2-0) lead to 20-7 late in the first half. No. 8 Marist would tack on 22 additional unanswered points to widen its advantage to 42-7.

The quote

“It’s a good win. Special teams came up with a couple of big plays and our defense, I thought, put good pressure on their quarterback. But we have a lot of work to do in all three phases.” — Marist coach Pat Dunne

The breakdown

Marist’s defense constantly applied pressure on Page, who was sacked six times and intercepted once. Shannon Smith and Steven McGugan had two sacks apiece. The RedHawks’ special teams also came through with a pair of blocked punts, one that was returned for a touchdown. After a dominating win last week, the Crusaders fall to 1-1.
