Roncalli 26, Moeller 21


Cincinnati's No. 1 loses to Indiana's No. 1

        Indianapolis Roncalli, Indiana's No. 1 ranked big school team, took advantage of Moeller mistakes to hand the Crusaders a 26-21 setback Friday night at Galbreath Field.

        Although Moeller amassed 112 more yards than Roncalli, the Wildcats recovered a fumble, blocked a Crusader field goal attempt and intercepted a pass to set up scores.

        The big play came seconds before halftime when Roncalli blocked a Moeller field goal attempt and two plays later scored on a 19 yards pass from quarterback Mike Hyde to Elijah Hammans for a 17-14 lead at the intermission.

        Moeller then fumbled the second half kickoff and four plays later Roncalli had a 20-14 lead when Mike O'Keefe booted a 30-yard field goal.

        After Moeller went ahead 21-20 on a one yard TD run by quarterback Brian Resiert, Roncalli quarterback Mike Hyde sruck again, throwing a 20-yard pass to Tommy Schembra.

        Moeller amassed 167 yards passing and 229 yards rushing with Marcus Blanks picking up 179 yards on 25 carries. Roncalli rushed for 91 yards and picked up 157 passing on eight-of-13 by Hyde.
