09/29/2017 - FOOTBALL: Pius X Takes Advantage of Southeast's Miscues


By Jeff Motz

Lincoln Pius X used their grind it out offense in the first quarter to take control of the football game at Aldrich Field Friday evening, while capitalizing on miscues by Lincoln Southeast.

The Thunderbolts kept their distance after taking full control in the second quarter and held on for a 49-21 victory before an estimated crowd of 2,000 people.

After Southeast used about a minute-and-a-half to cap a four-play, 79-yard drive on a 41-yard touchdown pass to Isaac Appleget; Pius X responded by going on a 9-minute drive that was capped by Austin Jablonski's 2-yard touchdown run to tie the game.

The Thunderbolts capitalized on a botched hand off and two plays later, took control on a 8-yard touchdown from from Chris Cassidy. Then with 8:05 left in the half, Pius X took a 21-7 lead after the ball was stripped from quarterback Jack Strong and recovered by Pete Blumenthal, who ran it back five yards for the score.

Pius X (4-2) continued to roll, with a nine-play, 69-yard drive capped off by another 8-yard scoring run from Cassidy for a 28-7 lead with 7:47 left in the third. 

Calvin Kyker responded with a 48-yard scoring strike for Southeast less than a minute later, then Pius X tacked on another scoring drive, when Jablonski threw a 37-yard pass to Joe Dworak into the end zone to extend the Thunderbolt lead at 35-14.

As Southeast (2-4) was driving, quarterback Jampe Gergen found Cade Cooper on a 43-yard touchdown pass 16 seconds into the fourth quarter.  The Knights were unable to capitalize on opportunities, despite forcing the 'Bolts to punt.  Another stalled Southeast drive resulted in a grind-it-out drive capped on a 1-yard sneak play into the end zone from quarterback Thomas Robertson.

Two minutes later, Pius X got the ball back at the Southeast 42-yard line when Jablonski on a quarterback keeper raced into the end zone to seal the win.

Jablonski ran for 97 yards in the game, while Cassidy gained 100 yards on the ground, as part of the Thunderbolt running attack.
