Stepinac loses heart breaker to Fordham prep
Posted Monday, October 24, 2005 by Mike ODonnell
Sat at Jack Coffey field the Fordham prep Rams won 5 th straight game. Stepinac Crusaders tied the score at 21 with about 4 minutes to go. The Crusaders kicked off & pinned the Rams deep in own territory. Fordham then drove 80 yards to score winning TD. The Crusaders got ball back with about 2 minutes remaining , but couldn't move ball. Fordham scored on a interception return with no time left on clock. Nick Venice scored 3 Td's & had over 160 yards rushing on the day. The cCusaders bottled up Rams rushing attack but were hurt by some great catches by James Lamachia.
Rams move to 5-1 in CHSFL while the Crusaders fell to 3-3. Crusaders play Nazareth on Sunday at Tilden HS . Chris Giardini was hurt in Sat loss in second Quarter. Hopefully his knee injury is not serious. Get Well Chris!
