Mater dei managed to stay stat?
Ranked... now 5th in ?a.
Tonight they played host to bosse... losers of four straight coming into the reitz bowl.
............. however the bulldogs are driving early on the wildcats... but the drive gets halted in it's tracks as jake merkley makes the diving stab for the pick.
................. mater dei's running game takes over from there... authored by #22 john mcgrew... who slashes through the bosse "d" then stretches for the opening touchdown, ?0 wildcats.
.............. and that was just the beginning of mister mcgrew's opus... next series... he weaves his way through bulldog traffic... then stiff arms his way into the bosse red zone for a 20 yard gain.
................. and mcgrew puts his "john hancock" on this drive with a seven yard slash and dash... putting the wildcats up 1?0.
....................... mater dei spreads the wealth on the following series... working the reverse to dakx lannert ... who sprints 31 yards to pay dirt... putting mater dei in command... up 2?0.
And mater dei goes on to win 3?0.
Reitz looks to get back in the win column..
While north is seeking to get over.500 for the first time since week 1.
We pick this one up late in the second half with reitz leading ?3... panthers looking to march down the field... but not on the watch of tanner jackson... here he makes a big time tackle for a loss.
Reitz would be forced to punt shortly after.
Ensuing north possession..
The huskies try to get the ground game going themselves... but on the handoff..
The panthers are not fooled as nolan mason and ja'shaun pace snuff out the husky run attempt.
