Benedictine football opened conference play last weekend against Concordia Wisconsin at home where they had an impressive victory of 55-17. Things continued rolling for the offense in both the run and pass game.

Starting quarterback Tyler Jarnagin threw for 323 yards and 4 touchdowns on 28 passing attempts while completing 24.

Gregory Hoard would also continue rushing hard for the Eagles as he had 72 yards and 2 touchdowns as well.

“Our team is feeling good up to this point,” said Nathan Rillo. “Biggest takeaway from CUW I would say that once we get momentum, it’s hard to stop us because we scored 28 unanswered points in the second quarter.”

With all the playmakers on this team, the Eagles have that conference title on their minds.

“Moving forward we’re looking to keep putting points on the board, win football games, and continue to stay healthy to win a conference championship,” said Rillo.

The Eagles will head to Eureka College this Saturday for a nonconference road game and will be back home for a Homecoming game on October 1st vs St. Norbert.
