Written by: Ben McCloskey on Saturday, October 14th, 2017
The Bishop Guilfoyle defense came into the game looking to prove how good they really are. The Marauders entered the game with 11 interceptions and were looking to build on that number against the pass heavy Central Cambria offense. They were able to add 3 more to their interceptions total in the 49-7 win.
The Marauders opened the game with the ball as Michael Berish fielded the kick, taking it 31 yards to the Central Cambria 49. After some runs by Conrad and Yasulitis, Berish was able to cap the drive off with an 8 yard score to put the Marauders up 7. On the first Central Cambria drive QB Justin Bezek threw a pass intented for WR Luke Bennett which was batted into the air in pulled in by Bishop Guifoyle’s John Fanelli. The ball was returned 40 yards and the Marauders set up their drive at the Central Cambria 33. The Marauders were able to get the ball inside the ten where Josh Yasulitis would find the endzone from 4 yards out. The extra point would then be blocked.
On the following drive Marauder DB Daniel Potopa intercepted another pass taking it 34 yards to the house. The Marauders would convert the 2 point conversion putting them up 21 with around 4 minutes left in the first quarter. After another failed drive by the Devils, the Guilfoyle offense would take over at the Central Cambria 44 yard line. They were able to drive into the red zone where Yasulitis would again find the endzone.
After a Josh Yasulitis interception at the Central Cambria 24, Max Sankey would put some more points on the board from 11 yards out. To follow up the next series for the Marauders Mark Conrad was able to connect with Daniel Potopa for a 19 yard touchdown, his second of the night. Potopa would end the first half for the Marauders scoring from 15 yards out to send the Marauders into halftime with a 49-0 lead.
The Marauders would have a quiet second half, having some decent drives but not finding the endzone again while Central Cambria was able to piece together a scoring drive at the end of the game. Guilfoyle and Central Cambria were able to exchange drives to close the game.
With the heavy passing game 3 different Marauders were able to intercept passes in the game while racking up 343 total yards of offense and holding the Central Cambria offense to 103. The Marauders will face the 7-1 Johnstown Trojans next week while the Red Devils look to take on the Bishop McCort Crushers.
