Week #1 Springfield (S.H.G.) Opponent (0-1)
Montini Ends Two Streaks
Lisle (Benedictine University) - Montini got what head coach Chris Andriano has been trying to get for a half decade now, a win versus Sacred Heart-Griffin.
With Saturdays win Montini ended SHG's streak of 28 consecutive victories , but more importantly Montini beat SHG for the first time ever as the Broncos have gone now gone 1-5 over the last 6 season when play the Cyclones.
Another, perhaps even more impressive streak ended as the Cyclones also lost their first regular season victory since week 8 of 2001.
Cyclone's QB Tim Dondanville (6'1 188 jr.) did just about all he could against the larger Broncos. Passing for 311 yards on 29 of 42 attempts with 2 TDs & one interception. He spread the ball out to 6 different players.
Montini head coach called his QB's performance "a kind of coming out party" as Tom Dicristina threw for 292 yards and 2 touchdowns, hitting his receivers on long throws. Six of his 22 attempts were completed for 15 or more yards, including the 61 yard TD to Brian Zirko & the 53 yard bomb to John Borsellino.
Dicristina would also put 60 yards of his own on the ground, with a 16 TD run untouched. Dex Jones & Borsellino both had rushing TD as well.
Josh Gossard had the lone SHG rushing TD on a 24 yard run, wile Dominic Walton & John Lantz were Dondanville's targets on his touchdown passes.
Scared Heart Griffin head coach Ken Leonard gave a speech to the Montini players during a combined post game prayer. Telling the Broncos that they shouldn't just play to be their best. They should "play to win". He also added that with their size and talent they should dominate everyone they play from here on out. "at least until you play us again." Most likely referring to a possible State Title match up.
