Sports Round-Up: Week 3

Sports Round-Up: Week 3


On Saturday, the home opener was upon the Saints, both the fans and players couldn’t be more ecstatic. The crowd was almost sold out for the contest and boy did they have something to cheer about with a 40-0 win over Robert Morris. Defense and special showed out early with the first defensive drop ending with a muffed snap recovered in the end zone to put the first points on the board. Shortly after, Jeremiah Davis intercepts a pass and returns it for a 71 yard touchdown. In total, the Saints forced four turnovers in the contest.

It was also, another dominant rushing day with three rushing touchdowns from two different backs, Benson and Jordan, while Davis led the attack with 113 yards on only 17 carries. For some Saints it was their first time ever encountering a Saints home win and Shawn Olivier had a lot on his mind after seeing the victory. Olivier is a redshirt freshman and though he is not able to participate in the contest, did as much as possible preparing the preparation for the offense on scout defense. He felt the pace of the game from start to finish was “full speed” with no signs of the Saints giving in.

In preparation for the home opener during practice and in the locker room, Olivier also said that “it was very exciting and everyone was locked in for the week.” His goal to prepare them for the rest of the season is, “Give the starting offense a good look while playing on the scout team and using his efforts to make the team better.”

The Saints will travel to St. Francis in hopes of keeping the undefeated streak going.


The JV baseball team has been off and rolling this fall showing bright spots in both the freshman recruiting class and the veterans alike posting an overall record of 4-0-1. The Saints traveled to Indiana Tech on Saturday winning the first contest in an offensive battle 12-9 and ending the trip with a tie at 2-2. The next day the Saints returned home and defeated the Ontario Royals 7-1 and 8-6 in the doubleheader contest. To cap off the busy week the Saints played a single game against Lourdes in which offense and defense were both strengths in this game with a 5-0 win at home.

With this being most Saints either first hit or strikeout in these contests, the Saints will continue to grow and develop as a unit in hopes of winning the WHAC in the spring. The JV team will play a doubleheader at home against Concordia and then a single game at Concordia.
