Grizzlies hand Jesuit second loss

Amid fumbles and interceptions, the Jesuit High School Marauders suffered a disappointing 12-27 loss to the Granite Bay High School Grizzlies last Friday.

“I thought that we under performed,” said lineman Aidan Goveas ’20. “We could’ve won that game. But at the end of the day, we just didn’t do what we had to do in order to win. It’s disappointing.”

One play in particular haunts the Marauders.

“The screen on the left side when the running back ran 75 yards,” said running back Cade Cunningham ’19. “That sticks with me.”

Similar to Jesuit’s last game against Folsom High School, injuries plagued the Marauder’s starting lineup.

“A lot of underclassmen are going to have to step up,” said defensive back Spencer Vigil ’19. “Jackson Canaan ’19, Isaiah Rutherford ’19, [and] Cade Brownholtz ’19 all have been injured. Connor McIntee ’19 was injured [against Granite Bay], but he’ll be back.”

But even with many of their key starters injured, the Marauders kept fighting.

“We battled on defense,” said Cunningham. “We gave up some big plays, but for the most part, we battled hard.”

Despite their 0-2 record, the team still aims for success in Holy Bowl this weekend and carries a newfound resolve to improve.

“Let’s see if we can compete against Christian Brothers,” said Coach Sean Morris. “They’ve got a good team out there. We’ve got to get back on the drawing board and see what we can do.”

Come out and support the Marauders this Saturday at Hughes Stadium  as they hope to put their first win in the books.
