Saint Mary’s Catholic varsity football looks to keep the consistency going throughout their last three District 3-1A games of the season. The Tigers started off slow, then took control of Dist. 3-1A foe Block in a 41-6 victory last Thursday in Turpin Stadium.

St Mary’s, now 6-1 overall and 2-0 in District 3-1A, lost control to start the game, but a second quarter turnaround stopped the Bears from gaining any more yardage. Block left Turpin with a 0-6 overall record and an 0-2 District 3-1A record.

Tigers quarterback Adam Parker ran for three touchdowns and 70 yards on seven carries, gaining 214 yards rushing. SMHS went into halftime with a 21-6 lead thanks to Parker’s three rushing touchdowns.

Defensively, Conor Jordan’s 25-yard pick six interception, followed by only six points all game for Block, grew St. Mary’s hopes of making a run for the top spot in the playoffs a reality. With only two games left, it will be tough to see a team throw St. Mary’s off stride.  Their next opponent will be Montgomery.

The Montgomery Tigers look for their second win of the season as they sport a 1-6 overall record and a 0-2 District 3-1A record for the season.  Last week Montgomery lost 38-14 against Northwood (Lena). St. Mary’s offensive mindset looks to keep Montgomery on their heels and dominate.  Catch the clash of the Tigers Friday, Oct. 22 at 7 p.m. in Montgomery.
