YOUNGSTOWN OH- Both Ursuline and Austintown Fitch came into week two with a lot of momentum, but only one would come up top in the week two matchup.  Last year, Fitch beat Ursuline by 20.  This year what seemed to start out as a close game, turned into a dominant performance in the second half.


Ursuline would score the first points on the board to start the game, when Brady Shannon threw a nice deep ball to Terrell Dillworth for a 71-yard touchdown.  The Irish went to go muddle huddle, trying the two-point conversion, but failed, making it 6-0.


Fitch answered back with scores of their own however from only a few yards out with the score now being 13-6 Falcons.  The Falcons took advantage of the Ursuline mistakes as Tyler Evans tossed to Senior Todd Simons for a 37-yard strike and it was now 21-6.  However, Brady Shannon and the Irish were not going down without a fight.  Shannon found the speedy Trenton Hill who juked a couple of defenders was gone, going 37-yards to the end zone. The two-point conversion was good and the Irish were only down by seven.


Shannon once again showed his quarterback accuracy, as he found Marc Manning 11-yards out.  However, kicker Dylan Peplowski missed the extra point and Fitch was still in the lead by one.  That is when Falcons decided to swarm the field.  It first started with Tyree Mitchell went 58-yards out with it being 28-20.  After that, Fitch did a surprise onside kick, something the Irish were not expecting and recovered the ball.


The Falcons scored four more times, having the younger athletes come in by the time the late third and fourth quarter came around, while pressuring Shannon and the Irish offensive line. Ursuline scored one more touchdown when DeMarcus McElroy scored from two-yards out.  The touchdown was not enough for a comeback as the Falcons won 56-28.


Shannon finished the game with 225 yards, three touchdowns and one interception.  Trenton Hill had six carries for 50 yards and the reception touchdown. For Fitch, it was Devin Sherwood who keeps on being consistent.  He finishes with 299 yards through the air and a touchdown.


Austintown Fitch (2-0) has momentum on their side, and look to continue that next Friday as they host the Chaney Cowboys (0-2) at Greenwood Chevrolet Austintown Falcon Stadium.  For Ursuline (1-1), they look to regroup as they head to Boardman to take on the Boardman Spartans (1-1).

YOUNGSTOWN OH- The last time Ursuline won a season opener, they had to wait it out two hours in a double overtime win.  Tonight was a similar situation minus the overtime,  as the Irish took on the Chaney Cowboys.


Ursuline’s first big play came when Dante Walker recovered a Chaney fumble on the opening possession.  Few plays after, running back Trenton Hill burst into the end-zone six yards out making it 6-0 Irish after a failed two point conversion.


The Irish extended the score later on in the quarter as junior quarterback Brady Shannon found his favorite target in Miami Red-hawk commit Matthew Reardon making it 14-0. Shannon got his second TD of the night, lobbing it up to Dean Boyd making it 22-0, which was the last score until the weather delay.


After the delay, it was as if nothing changed.  Ursuline stopped the Cowboys offense and scored one more time and added one with a Dylan Peplowski extra point.


It was not all bad for Chaney as they did end on a good note getting a touchdown, but it was too late as the Irish got their first season opener win since 2016,  29-6.


Ursuline (1-0) will host Austintown Fitch next Friday, while Chaney (0-1) will head to Howland (0-1) to try to pounce on the Tigers.
