THE SKINNY

Guerin stunned Marian Central to start the game as Joe Binkowski returned the opening kickoff 75 yards for a touchdown. The Hurricanes responded, scoring 56 first-half points to start a running clock with 4:53 to play in the second quarter.

TURNING POINT

The kickoff return was a big motivator to get the Hurricanes fired up in a game they were expected to win easily. Marian Central scored on all seven of its first-half possessions and also returned an interception for a score.

THE STAR

Hurricanes’ running back Ephraim Lee had four rushing touchdowns and 110 yards on 11 carries. Lee also had one catch that he took 60 yards for a score.

BY THE NUMBERS

Marian Central (3-0) outgained Guerin (2-1) 292-13 in first-half yardage; by the end of the game it was 460-29. Hurricanes quarterback Billy Bahl was 7-for-10 for 129 yards and three touchdowns.

QUOTABLE

I don’t think we had enough energy in the beginning, so when they scored, we had to step up. We got back in game mode. — Lee
