The Xaverian Clippers came from behind to defeat Stepinac, 27-22. The Crusaders of Stepinac took an early 8-7 lead. Stepinac's Rashaad Slowley scored on a short yardage run and they were able to score on the 2 pt. conversion. The Clippers responded with a 65 yard drive that ended with a rushing TD by QB, Christopher Calabrese.

Slowley scored on an 8 yard run in the second period and the 2 point conversion was good, to stretch the Crusaders' lead to 16-7. Once again Xaverian countered, this time with a 15 yard TD run by Dennis Spadaro and the PAT was good, to close the gap to 16-14. With 2 seconds remaining in the half, the Clippers took the lead when Kevin Mcardle kicked a 25 yard field goal.

The Clippers went on to score another field goal by Mcardle and Dennis Spadaro scored on a rushing TD, his second of the day, to put the game away. Stepinac was able to put another TD on the board towards the end of the game but it was a case of too little, too late.

The Clippers will face the winner of the St. Francis Prep / Cardinal Hayes game. Xaverian recently defeated St. Francis Prep, 35-7.
