Vianney Freshman QB Leads the Way

SchulteThe Vianney Griffins (2-3) defeated the Holt Indians (0-5), 35-21 on Friday night with Freshman QB Tionne Harris leading the way. Harris took over the starting job for Junior QB Nick Voorhees after he sprained his knee in week 4 vs CBC. With a lot of help from his big offensive line, Harris ran for 202 yards and passed for 154 yards and 3 touchdowns. The Holt Indians jumped out to a 7-0 lead with 3:08 left in the first quarter as QB Emilio Monsivais ran it in from 1 yard out. The defenses on both sides would then take over until just before half. The Griffins tied it up on a 58 yd TD pass from Tionne Harris to Nolan Snyder with just 1:54 left in the 1st half. Holt would immediatly respond with a 4 yd TD pass from Emilio Monsivais to Nick Tompkins to give the Indians a 14-7 halftime lead.
The 3rd Quarter would belong to the Griffins as Mitchell Yant, Dominic LaFerla, Nick Hardwick, Jake Lyon, and Liam Studdard would pave the way for the Vianney offense. Nolan Snyder caught his second TD from Tionne Harris from 24 yards out to even the score up at 14 with 5:49 left in the 3rd. Just few minutes later Harris would find Dillon Heeb for a  24 yard TD  to give the Griffins their first lead of the game 21-14. Starting safety Devin Marty also got the start at running back and ran for 106 yards and 2 TD’s in the 4th quarter. Marty’s first TD came with 9:08 left in the game from 6 yards out to make the score 28-14. It was critical for the Griffins to get production from Marty, especially after Jordon Hardwick had to leave the game with a leg injury. The Indians would not go quietly as they scored on their next drive. Emilio Monsivais would find RB Brendan Lenac on a short pass that he would take 74 yards down the sideline to cut the lead in half 28-21. Emilio Monsivais would finish the game with 242 total yards and 3 TD’s.  The Griffins offensive line would help seal the win with a long, methodical run heavy drive that was capped off by a 2 yd TD run by Devin Marty with just 2:35 left in the game. The Griffins would hold on to the 35-21 win.
The Griffins are back in action at home on Friday vs MCC rival Chaminade, While Holt will be at Fort Zumwalt East on Saturday.
