Undefeated St. Peter Knights looking for fourth straight
St. Peter Knights improved their record to 4-0 with a
win over the St. Mark Lions on Thursday and will now go
into the playoffs as prohibitive favourites to win their
fourth straight senior boys football championship and
sixth in the last eight years.
Knights made short work of the Lions, who played without
all-star pivot Nick Goergichuk to protect him from possible
injury heading into the post-season.
Johnny did most of the damage for the Knights, carrying
the ball five times for 100 yards while Jaylen King had
10 carries for 55 yards and a touchdown.
quarterback Jake Molinski also had a touchdown for the
Knights, as did Jeremy Salgo who returned an interception
40-yards late in the fourth quarter to cap the 29-6 victory.
rest of the scoring was provided by Nick Arcuri who kicked
three field goals and added three converts.
Pierre was also a force, running back three punts for
a total of 103 yards.
finishing in first place the Knights should have an easy
time of it in next week's semi-finals when they take on
a winless and pointless Franco-Cité. The other semi-final
will pit the second place St. Matthew Tigers against the
Lions who split their two regular season games.
