ST. BONIFACIUS, Minn. - (csssaints.com) The St. Scholastica football team won its ninth straight game against Crown College on Saturday when it traveled to St. Bonafacius and defeated the Storm 49-21.

The Action
The Saints scored on its first drive of the game in just four plays. Zach Edwards completed a pass to Hunter Thompson for 46 yards and the TD. Donovan Blatz hit the extra point for CSS. Crown answered with a touchdown of their own on an 11-play possession. It ended with a pass to Nick McCormick and a successful extra point tied things up 7-7. Neither side would find the end zone in the remaining six and a half minutes of the quarter.

The second quarter was a big one for CSS. It started with the last two plays of a Crown possession. Will Halloran returned the Storm punt for 37 yards to put the Saints in excellent position. All it took was a 19-yard rush from Jeff LeMay and the Saints had another six points. Blatz made the kick to regain the lead with a score of 14-7. Crown went three-and-out on its next possession and the Saints followed up with a successful drive. Edwards completed a 43-yard touchdown to Aaron Olson. This made the score 21-7, but Crown followed up on the next drive and got to within seven point of tying the lead. The third and final touchdown came from CSS, another pass completion to Thompson for 19 yards. That put the Saints up 28-14 headed into the half.

The third quarter saw another touchdown from each squad. The first one went to CSS on a rushing touchdown from Jack Peru to put them up 35-14. Crown was not ready to give up though, and it answered with a score of its own to give the quarter its final score of 35-21.

CSS made it into the end zone two more times in the game. Olson had his second TD reception of the game for the first points of the fourth quarter to extend the Saints lead to 42-21. The Storm had some misfortune on their next drive when it ended in an interception by Rick Johnson for the Saints with just over seven minutes left in the game. CSS took advantage of the play and LeMay collected another touchdown to give the game its final score of 49-21.

Notable Performances
Olson led the way for the CSS offense with five receptions for 137 yards and two touchdowns. Thompson had two touchdowns as well, with four receptions for 80 yards. Edwards threw for 235 yards on 11 completions with four touchdowns and no interceptions. LeMay rushed for 122 yards on 13 carries, followed closely by Peru who earned a season high of 112 rushing yards on 14 carries. On defense for the Saints, Jonathan Senger had six solo tackles, followed by Blatz with five. Blatz and Johnson both pulled in interceptions.
