BETHLEHEM- After last weeks disappointing performance against another cross-cty foe-Freedom, Bethlehem Catholic coach, Joe Henrich preached hard work and keep grinding though a gauntlet of EPC foes.

Saturday night at BASD Stadium that hard work and persaverance paid off with an impresive win over Liberty 45-16 on a damp night. With the win the Golden Hawks raised their record to 2-1, while the Hurricanes dropped their first game of the season after two wins.

The game began in a negative fashion for Beca as QB Zanar Brake threw an interception on the first play, which was returned to the Hawks ten. However, Liberty could not convert a fourth down attempt inside the ten.

Liberty managed to get on the board first as Todd Erney connected with Kendrick Wesley on a slant pattern from 10 yards out. Alexander Sahaydak made the PAT to make the score 7-0 on their third possesion.

After Becahi partially blocked a punt in the end zone and the Hawks took posession at the Hurrcanes nine yard line, but all the home team could muster was a 35 yard field goal byAnthony Dasilva to make the score 7-3 with 35 seconds left in the first quarter.

Liberty gave the Hawks great field position again after a misshandled snap on a punt attempt put the ball inside the Liberty 20. Tavion Banks scored from 3 yards out and DaSilva hit the PAT making the score 1o-7 with 9:52 before half.

Bethlehem Catholic extended to a 17-7 lead with Matt Stianche was on receiving end of a Brake pass on a deep crossing rout that covered 50 yards with 7:58 left in the quarter.

A safety forced by the Liberty defense they sacked Zarner Brake in the end zone making the score 17-9.

The Hurricanes punted to the their own 45, where Beca drove to the three and with just 8 seconds left before half Stianche caiught a Brake pass in the back corner of the endzone making the score 24-9 at intermission.

The second half started with Liberty possession that ended in a punt to the Hawks 15. Zarner Brake then zipped in a pass to Paul Carreras that covered 50 yards in total, making the score 31-9 with 8:51 left in the third.

The ensuing drive by Liberty culminated with a 1 yard pass from Erney to Justin Diaz with 5:01 left cutting the lead to 31-16.

That score did not last long as Zaheer Seabrooks went 81 yards on the kickoff return making the score 38-16.

Beca closed out the scoring with 31 yard pass from Brake to Stianche with ten minutes left in the contest.

“We talked all week how physical this game was going to be. We told our kids throughout keep working and good things will happen. We noticed some things in their schemes as night wore on that we adjusted to and we made the plays.” Coach Henrich stated after the contest.

Looking ahead to next week it doesn’t get any easier for the Hawks as they travel to Orefield and face 6 time defending district champions Parkland, who lost to Freedom Friday night 21-20. Liberty will face unbeaten Easton at BASD Friday. The Rovers demolished an out-manned Dieruff 50-0
