Holy Cross 35, Jesuit 34

Tommy Moledous' touchdown run and Andy Allain's conversion gave Holy Cross a 35-34 overtime win over Jesuit in a District 11-AAAA game Saturday night at Tad Gormley Stadium.

The seven Tiger points overcame a 34-28 Jesuit lead which resulted from a Timmy Parenton touchdown run in the overtime.  Holy Cross is now 2-5 overall and 2-2 in the league, while Jesuit is 4-3 overall and 1-3 in the league.

Editor: Okay, that's it.  You have read it.  Believe it or not, that was the entire article in the Sunday Picayune.  They must have been running low on ink or something.
