Notre Dame Prep Coach Scot Bemis is looking for his defense to play aggressive but with discipline. Not committing turnovers (five fumbles last week) is what the offense must do.
Bradshaw Mountain Interim Coach Ron Fuson needs to find a "big gun guy", something the Bears are lacking this year.
The first time Notre Dame Prep touches the ball they drive 54 yards in nine plays as RB Andrew Stutz takes the ball in from the one. The Saints defense keeps the Bears running game in check for most of the game. In the 2nd quarter Notre Dame takes the ball deep in Bear territory, set up by a great punt return, and RB sensation Patrick Foley crosses the goal line from the six and its 14-0 Notre Dame. Just before halftime WR Taylor Malenfant scores from 19-yards out and its 20-0 Saints at the half.
The 3rd quarter starts off with a quick Notre Dame drive that finds Patrick Foley scoring again taking a Shane Wolfe pass 46 yards for the final score of the game. Notre Dame Prep shuts out Bradshaw Mountain 27-0.
Bradshaw Mountain falls to 0-3. Inexperience is causing the problems as five sophomores saw a lot of action plus three more saw action for the first time. Working on tackling will begin on Tuesday. Coach Fuson reminds the Bears they were 1-2 this time last year so all is not lost yet.
Notre Dame Prep quarterbacks Shane Wolfe and Will King get good experience this night.
Coach Bemis agrees that it's the defense that gets the game ball. In eight quarters only 6 points are given up this season. Anytime a defense pitches a shutout its good news. Aggressive and hard working makes the defense the backbone of this rock solid Saints team.
