Shamrocks overpower Vestaburg
On Friday, September 26th, the Saint Patrick Shamrocks traveled north to Vestaburg to play the 1-0 Wolverines. The Shamrocks came to play, and were just too powerful, winning the game 46-18.
St. Patrick jumped out early, on a pair of touchdowns (54 and 8 yards) from Connor Cross to Derec Fedewa, and Shane Cook caught a pass from Cross for a two point conversion, giving the Shamrocks a 14-0 lead early in the first. The Wolverines busted loose and scored on a 54 yard run. Derec Fedewa ran over two defenders and turned on the jets for a 62 yard touchdown, leaving the score 20-6 after one quarter.
In the second quarter, the Shamrocks were sitting on their own 13 yard line when Connor Cross got flushed out of the pocket and threw a deep ball to Shane Cook. Shane caught the ball and shook three defenders on an amazing 87 yard passing touchdown. Cross hooked up with Fedewa for the two point conversion, which left the Shamrocks winning 28-6 at halftime.
The defenses held pretty good in the third quarter, with the Shamrock offense playing conservative, the Shamrock defense scored 6 on a 15 yard interception return by Derec Fedewa. The Wolverines responded with a 41 yard touchdown pass, leaving the score 34-12 after three quarters.
The Shamrocks put up two more scores in the fourth. Shane Cook caught a 24 yard touchdown in the corner of the endzone, and freshmen Lucas Simon powered in a 5 yard rushing TD, before Vestaburg busted a 56 yard touchdown making the final score 46-18.
