Aquinas blasts Turner for second straight win
By Ty Hardamon PrepsKC staff writer
St. Thomas Aquinas was clicking on all cylinders Friday night versus Turner. The Saints were impressive on offense, defense, and special teams during the first half, posting a whopping 42-6 score through the first two quarters. Last week, the Saints won 60-0, this week 63-6.
It didn’t take long for the Saints to get going. On the second play from scrimmage running back James Consentino broke for a 68-yard run before he scored the games’ first touchdown.
The Saints second touchdown of the game was a dandy. Senior quarterback Dan Consentino connected on a back shoulder throw with wide receiver Ryan McNellis. The senior wide out had a strong offensive game, scoring three total touchdowns. During the first series McNellis took the handoff on an end around for a large gain, before it was called back due to holding. The very next series McNellis number was called for the exact same play resulting in a touchdown.
On the defensive side, Angel Dominguez and Kyle Raunig dominated early and often. During the first half the 6-foot, 4-inch linemen harassed the Bears quarterback Paul Berry for a sack each and the dynamic duo blocked and recovered a punt. The Bears starting quarterback had a rough night. The Saints bottled up their running game forcing Berry to attempt 36 passes. The senior QB finished the game with two interceptions and his lone touchdown pass.
Saints head coach Mike Thomas gave junior QB Kyle Bollig the start in the in the second half. Bollig ran two touchdowns in to tack on more points for the Saints.
Through the first six games of the season the Saints have scored a total of 136 points, past two, 123. The Saints are gaining momentum as the regular season comes to an end, and the playoffs are peaking around the corner. Next week they host The Bishop Miege Stags with hopes of improving on their 3-5 record.
