DREXEL HILL: After knocking off neighborhood rival Upper Darby last Friday night the Monsignor Bonner- Archbishop Prendergast Friars found themselves in position to become 2-0 for the first time since 2014. Thanks to all around 27-0 domination of the visiting Avon Grove Red Devils on a special Thursday night game that’s exactly where the Friars will find themselves when they wake this morning. “It feels phenomenal, I feel like has a team it’s the best we ever been.” Jr OL Anthony Cinaglia said of his teams start. RB Charles Ingram added “ It felt really to be 2-0 in all my time here we haven’t had a winning season, we’ve been working really hard.”
Behind Cinaglia, and fellow lineman Chilekasi Adele, Brian Friend, Ethan Cottrell and Nick Bozzeto and the Friars controlled the trenches resulting in 398 yards total offense including an even 200 yards on the ground. Those numbers would be impressive on their own but when you add the fact only Adele was the senior up front and Cinaglia was the only returning starter on the line makes it even more impressive. “Were only going to go as far has they take us.” Friar coach Jack Muldoon said, adding everything starts with them.
Two the main benefactors of the line play were QB Kyle Lazer and RB Charles Ingram. Lazer was a very economical 10 for 14 for 197 yards two touchdowns. Lazer connected with six different receivers, while Ingram finished the game with 121 yards rushing on 12 carries and a third quarter score.
When asked about his offensive line Ingram responded said I work with them hard in practice, I tell them I’m following them they make a hole and I’m going to find. Cinglia offered praise about his running back saying its easy and fun to you give him little space you know he’s going to go.
Lazer arm was responsible for giving Bonner the 14-0 halftime with his two touchdown passes. The first one was to James Welde that covered 35-yards in the first quarter. Lazer second touchdown pass he connected with Nasiim Rhodes Nelson 21 yards out.
As impressive has the Friars offense was their defense was just as impressive and dominating. How dominating was the Friars defense? Consider this the Red Devils were held to only 24 yards of total offense and a whopping negative 46 yards rushing, and they didn’t have a rusher finish with positive yardage. Oscar Uduma led the Friars and spent most the night in the Red Devils backfield finishing with four tackles for a loss including three sacks and added a batted pass. “we did a real good job game-planning.” Muldoon said.
“We were just prepared” Uduma said about his defense dominating performance.
Next Saturday the Friars will look to continue their hot play when the travel up to the Bronx New York where they will meet Herbert Lehman High School with kickoff scheduled for 2 pm before beginning Catholic League play with the Saints of Neumann Goretti at home on September 13
while the Red Devils will look to break into the win column when they host the Wildcats of Owen J Roberts in their final non-league contest next Friday night before entering Chest Mont National play with a match-up with Bishop Shanahan on September 13.
