Blue Jays Shut Down Holy Cross
By BRYAN LAZARE
Brett Kreller rushed for 114 yards and two touchdowns as Jesuit defeated Holy Cross, 31-0, in a District 7-5A game Saturday night at Tad Gormley Stadium.
Kreller, who normally starts at fullback, moved to tailback, replacing Todd Golemi, who did not play because of a shoulder injury. Kreller scored on runs of 7 and 16 yards.
The victory was the third in a row for the Blue Jays, who lost four of their first five games. Jesuit needs victories against Brother martin and Rummel in its last two games to gain a wild card playoff berth. Holy Cross lost its fifth straight league game after winning three non-district games.
The Blue Jays' average starting field position was their 47-yard line. The average starting point for Holy Cross' possessions was its 21-yard line.
In the first half, while Jesuit was building a 17-0 lead, five plays were run in Holy Cross territory.* None of the Blue Jays' scoring drives starter outside the Holy Cross 40.
* Editor's note: Hmmm, I think they had that part wrong.
