The star

Senior quarterback Octavio Renteria threw for 109 yards and two touchdowns in the first half, then used his legs in the second half. Renteria ran for 159 yards, including a 66-yard scoring run that gave the Shamrocks a 26-14 lead with 11:15 remaining in the game.

The moment

Notre Dame cut the score to 20-14 with 3:18 remaining in the third quarter and recovered a fumble on the Shamrocks’ next possession. St. Patrick defensive back Dan Henley reversed the game’s momentum, however, when he intercepted Dan Nagode on the ensuing drive

The quote

“[Beating Notre Dame] means too much. We haven’t beat this team in three years; that’s what we stressed all week in practice. We worked hard all week and just put everything together and came out with a victory. I couldn’t be more proud of my team.” — Renteria

The breakdown

Notre Dame running back Chris James ran for 144 yards on 26 carries. The junior scored on a 28-yard run and an 80-yard screen pass, but St. Patrick’s 13-0 lead took the pressure off of the defensive play calling, according to St. Patrick coach Dan Galante.
