Bishop Shanahan has their stands filled with family, friends, students, etc. for Senior Night. They hosted The Sun Valley Vanguards in a blowout 34-0 win under the lights.

The game was highlighted by Shanahan’s early 28-0 lead at the end of the first half. They were clicking on all cylinders and both sides of the ball had their way.  Sun Valley wasn’t able to gain any moment mum throughout the game. They relied on the screen game heavy, but The Eagles could sniff out the play call a mile away.

“We have three of our starting offensive linemen out due to injury and that doesn’t help, but I don’t want to make excuses,” said Sun Valley head coach Earnie Ellis. “We had a tough week last week and we needed to go out and execute. We watched film and we knew were in a uphill battle this and it was just to come out and help build our identity.”

Senior running back Colin McGrory showcased a tough and gritty hat-trick scoring performance. All three of his TD’s were receptions thrown by Cooper Jordan.

Jordan, once again showed that he is one of, if not the best quarterback in the ChesMont. He finished the night accounting for all five scores, one on the ground and four in the air, with the other TD pass to Simmi Whitehall towards the end of the 1st half.

“It was a great team win, we just built upon our energy from last week, and after the [Downingtown] East game our whole kidney changed and really humbled us as a team and brought us close to together, we needed that and we’ve been on go from there.”

Sun Valley defense played a much better first half by only allowing one score and keeping The Eagles from punching another ticket into the end zone on two occasions. The Vanguard’s were just held to a stalemate on offense and the momentum just wasn’t there.

“The penalties hurt us and we let them get under our skin towards the end and caused us not to finish,” said Shanahan head coach Paul Meyers. “Yesterday in practice I challenged both stage offensive and defensive line and they both did a great job tonight.”

Shanahan improves to 5-1 and take on Avon Grove next week on the Red Devils homecoming night. Sun Valley falls to 2-4 trying to finish the back half of the season on a positive note. They take on Henderson next Friday.
