After starting the season with a loss, Benet Academy has reeled off three straight wins. Nazareth Academy, on the other hand, looks to avoid losing its third in a row.
Things looked bleak from the start for the Redwings. Quarterback Jack Sznajder threw an interception returned for a touchdown on the team’s opening possession. But the Redwings battled back, taking a 14-7 lead in the third quarter off an 80-yard punt return for a touchdown by Ben Cooney.
The game would only be tied once more from there. Benet goes on to get the Homecoming win 26-21, defeating Nazareth Academy for the first time since 2012.
