Fenwick tops Badin to stay perfect

The two remaining unbeaten teams in the GCL Co-Ed Division faced off on Friday night, ending with Fenwick defeating Badin, 38-31 to keep its perfect season alive.

Fenwick’s Nathan Jeffers got the scoring started early, scoring on a short 3-yard touchdown run to put the Falcons up early in the first quarter.

Badin responded by driving down to the Fenwick 5 yard line but was stopped short of a touchdown, resulting in a 22-yard field goal Logan Heintzman, allowing the Rams to get within three points of the Falcons in the second quarter.

After Fenwick was forced to punt, the Rams capped off their ensuing drive with a 14-yard touchdown pass to Philip Dozier from Zach Larkin. The touchdown was only the second touchdown Fenwick had given up all season.

Nathan Jeffers responded with a 49-yard touchdown reception from Fenwick quarterback Jimmy Gephart to put the Falcons up 12-10, but a successful two-point conversion sent the score to 14-10 in favor of the Falcons.

On the next Rams’ possession, Cody Boxrucker broke free for a 25-yard touchdown on a draw play, giving Badin the lead back in the back-and-forth game.

A field goal by Fenwick’s Matthew Hirko with less than a minute to go in the first half tied the score at 17 going into the locker room.

Fenwick once again got the scoring started in the second half on a Jeffers 10-yard touchdown run, his third of the night.

Badin responded once again with another touchdown score on a Buxrucker 12-yard run to tie the score at the end of the third quarter at 24.

The fourth quarter saw Jeffers score his fourth and fifth touchdowns of the night, a 1-yard run and 41-yard run, respectively.

A late Badin touchdown pass from Larkin to Dozier cut the final deficit to seven, giving Badin its first loss in the loss column in 2015.

Fenwick (5-0, 2-0 in GCL Co-Ed) will host McNicholas next Friday night, while Badin (4-1, 1-1 in GCL Co-Ed) will travel to take on Carroll.
