Boys’ Latin finally allowed its first defensive points of 2013, but the Lakers were no less dominant, Saturday, as they defeated visiting Kiski Prep (PA), 38-14.
Making its second trip to Baltimore this month, Kiski, from the Pittsburgh area, left with a second consecutive loss to a MIAA B Conference school. (Archbishop Curley was the other.)
Quarterback Freddy Bopst led the BL offense, completing 13-of-25 passes for 180 yards and two scores. He also rushed for one touchdown. Nick Gesualdi was on the receiving end for one of Bopst’s TD tosses and he returned an interception 50 yards for a score. It was his third interception of the season and his second pick six. Davy Lizana also had a touchdown reception.
Stephon Hill scored on a blocked punt, which he returned 20 yards to the end zone, and Dom Maggio booted a 30-yard field goal to complete the Laker scoring. Maggio also helped the Lakers control the field position by averaging 45 yards on five punts, while Michael Whitehurst carried the ball 16 times for 51 yards.
Defensively, Boys’ Latin was led by Preston Waters, who had three solo tackles, two tackles for loss and one sack. Devin Shewell blocked the punt which resulted in Hill’s touchdown and Pat McManus had a strong performance in the secondary.
Boys’ Latin will be home next Saturday to face St. Vincent Pallotti.
