St. Clair 35, Washington 24

St. Clair finally got that first win of the season it has desperately been looking for.

Playing before a large crowd to open the 2012 football season Friday at Washington High School, the Bulldogs knocked off the Blue Jays, 35-24.

It was a game of big plays with St. Clair emerging victorious.

After a scoreless first quarter, St. Clair grabbed a 7-0 lead when quarterback Kyle Juergens tossed a 13-yard touchdown pass to Rickey Grivetti with 11:40 left in the second quarter.

Washington came right back when Jacob Arnold took the ensuing kickoff 85 yards for a score to tie the game, 7-7.

The Bulldogs (1-0) regained the lead with 7:23 left in the second quarter when Juergens dashed 73 yards for a touchdown to make the score 14-7.

The Blue Jays scored 10 points in the final 1:33 of the second quarter to take the lead into intermission.

Luke Hoemann booted a 27-yard field goal followed by a two-yard touchdown pass from Luke Hasenjaeger to Brock Hopkins with nine seconds left on the clock to give the home team a 17-14 advantage.

The late touchdown was set up by a St. Clair fumble, recovered by Washington’s Alex Schull deep in Bulldogs’ territory.

Washington led 17-14 at halftime.

The second half was back-and-forth between the two teams as well.

Bulldogs’ running back Adam Brott gave his team a 21-17 advantage on a 44-yard touchdown run with 7:29 left in the third quarter.

The Blue Jays (0-1) responded with another big play. This time, running back Randall Flotte broke loose for an 82-yard touchdown run to give the home team a 24-21 lead with three minutes left in the third quarter.

Washington held the 24-21 lead after three quarters.

The big play of the game was turned in by St. Clair’s defense.

Grivetti intercepted a pass and ran 10 yards for a touchdown to give St. Clair a 28-24 lead with 6:57 left in the fourth quarter.

The Bulldogs put the game away with 38 seconds left when Juergens and Blake Dierking connected on a 25-yard touchdown pass to make the score 35-24.

The two teams combined for four touchdowns that went for over 40 yards and three that went for over 70 yards.

Washington and St. Clair both are on the road during week two.

The Blue Jays travel to Timberland while the Bulldogs visit De Soto.
