YOUNGSTOWN, OH- Ursuline Offensive Coordinator John DeSantis had to feel like he was playing a video game on Thursday Night from his coach’s box atop Stambaugh Stadium. His Irish offense accounted for 475 yards in a 62-58 victory over Bishop Hartley.
Yes, you read that right.
The two teams combined for 120 points, 1,001 yards of total offense- and out of all of that, a tackle by Ty’Req Donlow on 4th and 1 with 32 seconds left in the game will be all many speak of.
Senior Irish signal-caller, Brady Shannon threw for 279 yards and 5 touchdowns, while doubling his attack on the ground with 97 yards and a score. The tag team of Dean Boyd and Marc Manning patrolled the skies, Boyd ripped in six grabs for 129 yards and a score while Manning had a three-score night on five catches for 62 yards.
Ursuline (1-0) will take advantage of the extra day of rest, and prepare for Hickory as the Irish will travel to the Keystone State in Week 2.
