Different Night, Different Team, Same Headline: Nazareth Dominates

The Blue Eagles record breaking night started as they were led out onto the field by honorary captain, Aidan Gowardy, who seemed to be the good luck charm for Nazareth in their 27-13 win against Bethlehem Catholic.

Records fell on all sides of the ball on Friday night for Nazareth. With his 92nd extra point made, junior kicker Matt Bugbee broke the all-time extra point record at Nazareth. Bugbee looks to kick his 100th career PAT only three years into his high school career. Perhaps the most impressive record at Nazareth this year though, is DB Nate Stefanik’s single-season interception record. He recorded his ninth interception of the year in only five games. He also broke the all-time interception record at Nazareth with 12 in his career.

As for Nazareth’s offense, they rushed for a total of three touchdowns (Grom, Harris, Rohn). Anthony Harris also threw for a 19-yard touchdown to Nate Stefanik. Defensively, it was the same old story for Nazareth. The dominant trio of Jake Wilson, Jack McKenna, and Ben Houchin kept consistent pressure on QB Jared Richardson and contained RB Tavion Banks which led to only two touchdowns for Becahi.

Next week, Nazareth travels to Parkland to face off against the 3-2 Trojans, which should be another good matchup. Parkland is coming off hot against a win against Liberty and hopes to shatter the Blue Eagles (so-far) perfect season.
