Fond Du Lac St. Mary’s Springs swept across the scoreboard with a dizzying flurry of points to ambush Kenosha St. Joseph 29-6 on November 5 in Wisconsin football action.
“These kids sucked it up and they knew what they had to do,” St. Mary’s Springs head coach Bob Hyland said. “They just came down here and did their job.”
Kenosha St. Joes’s started off the scoring on the first play of the game with an 88-yard touchdown from DeAndre Baptiste on the opening kickoff of the game. St. Mary’s Springs responded with a 14-yard touchdown run from Isaac Highland and a 26-yard field goal from Cole Rottman to get a 9-6 lead at the end of the first quarter.
“They are a perennial powerhouse for a reason,” Kenosha St. Joe’s head coach Matt Rizzo said. “They executed really well.”
Rizzo added that his team was chasing too much throughout the game, and felt the first half dictated the game.
“If one side is down, the other picks it up,” Rizzo said of how things were going during the season. “We didn’t do that until the second half.”
Hyland added on his second rushing touchdown with a two yard run with 7:47 remaining in the half to push the lead to double digits. With 35 seconds remaining in the second quarter, quarterback Cullen King connected on an eight-yard touchdown pass with Caden Blanck to grab a 23-6 halftime lead.
After a scoreless third quarter, St. Mary’s Springs running back Levi Huempfner added on a six-yard rushing touchdown for the final score of the game.
Huempfner led St. Mary’s Springs with 128 yards rushing, while Hyland ran for 121 in the win.
St. Mary’s Springs advances to Level Four action and will play Darlington next week.
