Grunts flatten Falcons on homecoming night

On their homecoming night last week, in front of their largest, most involved home crowd of the season, the Grunts of Father Vincent Capodanno High School gave their fans what they came to see as they put on a show and defeated the Lee Christian Falcons by a score of 40 — 0.

The Grunts set the tone early and didn’t allow the Falcons to find any rhythm in the game. Sophomore quarterback Ian Hicks had his best game of the season as he connected on eight passes, hitting four different receivers. One of those passes went for a 50-yard touchdown strike to senior Braedon Hudson, and another connected with Sam Attar for a 20-yard score.

Hudson also scored on the ground, breaking tackles and dodging defenders en route to a 50-yard run, set up by a monster downfield block by Hicks, clearing the way to the end zone.

Attar also had his best game of the season, as the senior finished the night with 125 yards rushing on seven carries, two catches for 20 yards and the touchdown, an onside kick recovery, two converted extra-point tries and a kickoff for a touchback.

Not to be overshadowed by the high-flying offensive clinic, the Grunt defense kept the Falcons from mounting any kind of counterattack, with major contributions coming from some of the younger players on the team.

Freshman Mylum Lancaster snagged his first interception of the season in the first quarter, and fellow freshman Canon Capps took another one away, effectively ending the Falcons opening drive of the second half.

Sophomore Jefferson Fraley was a menace all night as he led the team in tackles with six solo, six assists, two sacks and forced two fumbles on the night, both recovered by the Grunts.

The Grunts look to capitalize on this victory as they march to Fayetteville on Friday to take on Berean Baptist Academy.
