The SkyHawks took on crosstown rival Gross Catholic in a televised Thursday night battle. Skutt Catholic came in at a perfect 7-0 and the Cougars came in at a straggling 2-5.

Chilly temperatures, and slight winds led to a bit of a slow start to both offenses. At the end of one quarter of play it was scoreless. As the second quarter began the SkyHawks kicked into gear with the leading rusher in Class B Senior Jarod Epperson found the open field from 33 yards out and put his team up 7-0. Just a few minutes later, Epperson receives the ball and goes the distance from 67 yards out to take a 14-0 lead.

One unusual thing the SkyHawks have done all year is rotate quarterbacks almost every possession, Junior Tyson Gordon takes it in himself and puts the SkyHawks ahead 21-0 going into the locker room.

As the second half was underway, Epperson finds the endzone for a third time, and the very next drive Senior fullback Tommy Legel scores from far out to go ahead 35-0.

Skutt Catholic grinded out a 42-0 victory, and Senior running back Jarod Epperson shattered the single-season rushing touchdown record. “Teamwork definitely played a roll. although only one person can score, it takes a team effort to put everything together. whether that’s on offense or defense, we play better as a unit.” said Senior Wide Receiver Grant Bertucci.

The SkyHawks travel to Norris for their regular season finale next week as they set to prepare for the Class B playoffs.
