2012 Jesuit Frosh Football versus Napa
Playing their fourth game of the season, the Jesuit Marauders faced the Napa Indians at Memorial Stadium in Napa. The Indians came into the game with 4 wins and 0 losses.
Napa opened the game with two long scoring drives. Jesuit was unable to stop their running game. Napa led by the score of 16 to 0 at the end of the first quarter.
Jesuit scored early in the second quarter to make the score 16 to 8, but Napa turned around and drove the length of the field to score again. Just before half-time, Jesuit's starting free safety intercepted a pass and returned it for a touchdown. The score at half-time was Napa 24, Jesuit 16.
Jesuit scored about halfway through the third quarter to tie the score at 24, but Napa drove the length of the field to score and lead 32 to 24 at the end of the third quarter. Neither team was able to score in the fourth quarter.
Napa won the game by the score of 32 to 24. The Marauders now have a record of 2 wins and 2 losses. The game log is here.
For the first time in three weeks, Jack actually played at free safety. He played one defensive series in the second quarter and a couple of plays at the end of the game. Hopefully, he will get a few more opportunities in the next six weeks. The coaches continue to have a fairly tight rotation. Of the almost 60 kids dressed for the game, it looks like only 27 or 28 played.
The Marauders play the Vintage Crushers next Thursday at Memorial Stadium in Napa. The Crushers have a record of 3 wins and 2 losses. Their wins include a 50 to 0 victory over American Canyon and a 36 to 0 win over Woodland. Their losses include a 7 to 26 loss to Clayton Valley and a 7 to 38 loss to Whitney.
