Marist 55, Brother Rice 14
Coming off a 28-26 loss to St. Rita in Week 1, Marist’s aerial attack came out firing in the Battle of Pulaski Road. The RedHawks (1-1) scored six times in the first half, all through the air, to take a 48-7 lead.
Late in the first quarter, Brother Rice’s Marcus Jones had a 53-yard touchdown run called back on a penalty. Marist picked off Rice quarterback Alex Alarcon on the next play, the RedHawks scoring on a Nic Weishar 4-yard TD grab to go up 28-0 late in the half.
Marist quarterback Jack Donegan tore it up in the first half, finishing 21-of-25 for 338 yards and six touchdowns overall.
BY THE NUMBERS
Weishar finished with nine catches for 154 yards and three touchdowns (27, 4, 31 yards) while Flynn Nagel had five catches for 119 yards and three TDs (56, 17, and 34). Jones had a 6-yard touchdown run for Rice (1-1) in the second quarter.
“There’s nothing more you can ask for as a receiver (with our offense). Our offense is perfect for a receiver. The Rita loss left a bad taste, and we knew we had to bounce back. We worked our butts off in practice this week.”
