Week 1 SF Versus Duluth East
September 9, 2013By Carlo Scardigli of St. Francis High School
On a hot & humid week 1 the Saints defeated the Duluth East Greyhounds 64-12. The Saints started fast scoring on 2 of their first 4 plays run from scrimmage. The first TD was a 71yrd run by John Santiago and on the next series Max Gust took it to the house for a 72 yrd TD run. In qtr 2, Hunter Trautman threw 2 TD passes to Jake Johnson to send the Saints into halftime with a 44-12 cushion. In the second half the Saint scored 3 more td's highlighted by a 34 yrd TD pass to Jake Vanness from Jeremy Puff.
The unheralded O line did a great job controling the line of scrimmage all night as the Saints rushed for 498 yrds on 45 carries and 5 tds. Also, kudos to our passing game as the Saints threw for a total of 4 td passes during the evening.
Lastly, I believe that the the 64 pts in the game is a SF record surpassing the 63pts the 1977 team threw on the board during a wet and wild 63-0 win on homecoming versus the Braham Bombers.
Good luck to the Saints in wk2 versus @ STMA.
