After facing an early deficit, Kenosha St. Joe’s advanced to level three action on Friday night. The Lancers used 28 unanswered points on route to a 28-8 win over Waterloo at home.
Waterloo quarterback Cal Hush connected on one of his only two completed passes with Eugene Wolff on a 65-yard touchdown pass to grab the lead. Hush connected with Trevor Firari for a two point conversion to push the lead to 8-0 with 2:51 remaining in the first quarter.
Jacob Ashmus provided the response for St. Joes as he did through the air and on the ground in the second quarter. Ashmus connected with Andrew Alia on a 30-yard touchdown pass as well as ran for a one-yard score to give the Lancers a 14-8 lead at the half.
“Jacob (Ashmus) and Jayden (Gordon) played well,” Kenosha St. Joe’s head coach Matt Rizzo said. “We made some adjustments throughout the game with our run game, which allowed us to take advantage of the flow of the game and what the weather allowed.”
After a scoreless third quarter for both teams, Jayden Gordon extended the lead for the Lancers with touchdown runs of eight and 14 yards to provide the only scoring in the fourth quarter.
Gordon led the Lancers offensively with 143 yards on 32 carries, while Ashmus threw for 53 yards on only six pass attempts.
With the win, Kenosha St. Joe’s advances and will face St. Mary’s Springs at home next week.
“St. Mary’s Springs is very good and very well coached,” Rizzo said. “They execute their schemes with the best of them.”
