Fenwick 28, Brother Rice 20
Fenwick’s Gino Cavalieri threw eight incomplete passes in the first quarter and Fenwick’s offense seemed sluggish. The Friars woke up when Cavalieri and Robert Spillane connected for an 11-yard touchdown to take a 21-17 lead in the third period. Cavalieri and Spillane later connected for a 1-yard TD toss.
Brother Rice (1-2) and Fenwick were tied at 14 at halftime. The Crusaders got a 21-yard field goal from Brian Kane for a 17-14 third-period lead, but missed a chance at another field goal after a bad snap. From there, the Friars took control, scoring two more touchdowns.
Fenwick’s Robert Spillane ran for 111 yards and a touchdown. He also had two TD catches and 51 receiving yards.
BY THE NUMBERS
Cavalieri started off slowly, with eight incomplete passes in the first half but finished the contest completing 15-of-28 passes for 218 yards and three touchdowns, including a 45-yard TD toss to Pat Donahue.
“We came out flat but we just picked it up. We turned it on and never looked back. We knew we had to keep fighting, fight every play. That’s what we do, we fight every down and every play. We knew it was going to be a dog fight and that’s what we came here for and we left with a ‘W.’ — Spillane
