2012 Jesuit Frosh Football versus Vintage
Playing their fifth game of the season, the Jesuit Marauders faced the Vintage Crushers at Memorial Stadium in Napa. The Crushers came into the game with a record of 3 wins and 2 losses.
The Marauders took the opening kick-off and drove the length of the field to score, but missed the extra point. The Crushers came right back and scored to make the score 7 to 6 at the end of the first quarter. The Marauders scored again in the second quarter and led 12 to 7 at half-time.
The two teams traded touchdowns in the third quarter. The Marauders led by the score of 20 to 13 at the end of the third quarter.
With about four minutes left in the fourth quarter, the Marauders drove to the Crushers' five yard line. After a series of penalties including a holding and a delay of game, the Marauders turned the ball over on an interception. The Crushers drove back the other way. Helped by a fifteen yard penalty for too many players on the field, the Crushers got to the Marauder's 15 yard line. The defense held as the clock ran out.
The Marauders won the game by the score of 20 to 13. They now have a record of 3 wins and 2 losses. The game log is here.
Jack started the game at free safety, but only played the first defense series. With the Vintage backs breaking through the line and getting into the defensive backfield, Jack was actually credited with at least one tackle. He also played on the PAT team.
After five straight away games, the Marauders will play the next five games at home. They will face Ponderosa next Thursday night.
