The class of 2020’s last home game got off to a great start. Senior linebacker Brock Locnikar and junior linebacker J.D. Roberts got it going with a huge tackle for a loss. This led North Canyon to eventually punt the ball away on its first offensive drive.
Notre Dame’s offense started its drive with a 15-yard run by senior running back Dominick Mastro. Mastro had 16 carries for a total of 134 yards and three touchdowns. Senior quarterback Derek Elsholz threw a 47-yard pass to senior wide receiver Quinn Leventhal to get them into scoring position. Elsholz threw for a total of 157 yards and one touchdown. The Notre Dame offense had a three-play, 55-yard drive to put seven points on the board.
The Saints offense went out again after another stop by the defense. Mastro led the offense to another score with a three-play, 40-yard drive to extend the lead to 14-0.
The Saints’ offense put up 46 points in the first half while the defense did not allow any first downs in the first two drives and kept North Canyon to zero points for the first half.
The first play of the second half for the Saints’ offense was a six-yard run up the middle. Junior Tyler Schweigert started at quarterback the second half and threw a touchdown pass
to sophomore wide receiver Gavin Smith on the second offensive play of the half.
The North Canyon’s kickoff returner made a great play when he grabbed the ball at the seven-yard line and ran all the way up the sideline before being pushed out of bounds at the 50. The Saints’ defense held the running back to a three-yard gain up the middle. Junior defensive end Brady Blessing and senior defensive end Dylan Benvento worked together for a seven-yard sack on the quarterback. It was 53-0 Saints at the end of the third quarter.
Sophomore defensive tackle Duke Frye and Blessing sacked the North Canyon quarterback for a 15-yard loss, forcing the punt. After a couple of strong runs by junior running back Ian Williamson, Mastro had a 17-yard touchdown run to make it 60-0 in favor of the Saints. On the kickoff, the Saints’ special teams got a fumble recovery at the 19 yard line and sealed the victory.
