Jesuit Fights Past Regulation, Falls to Brother Martin in Triple OT
Both teams could not have asked for a better night to play under the lights. With a slight breeze and the temperature under 70 degrees, the Blue Jays (1-1, 0-1) and Crusaders (2-0, 1-0) waited to add another chapter to this historic rivalry. With both fan bases cheering on their side, both squads ran onto the field and left all their hope, sweat, and tears on it.
A defensive battle ensued, and regulation was not long enough to crown a victor. After the third overtime, Brother Martin claimed the hard-fought victory by a score of 21-14 at Tad Gormley Stadium.
Senior quarterback Jack Larriviere played well with his legs by rushing for 116 yards and a touchdown against a stout Crusader front. Also, the Jesuit defense held the opposing side to only seven point in regulation and constantly made strong plays to keep their team in the contest.
Jesuit will learn and move on from this game as another district matchup awaits on Friday when the Jays face Holy Cross at Tad Gormley at 7:15 p.m.
