It was another night of firsts for the Borgia football Knights.

Borgia (3-1) earned a 34-7 win over St. Mary’s (3-1) to earn its first-ever Archdiocesan Athletic Association victory Friday at Borgia.

The Knights improved to 1-1 in the conference and head to St. Dominic next Friday for another league game.

Borgia jumped out to a 21-0 lead with the game’s first three scores.

The Knights took advantage of St. Mary’s turnovers, a reversal of last week’s fortunes against Duchesne to go up by three scores.

The Knights drove downfield after the opening kickoff to take the lead, 7-0, on a 38-yard pass play from John Baumstark to Tony Helfrich over the middle. Luke Schriewer’s kick made it 7-0 just 2:02 into the game.

St. Mary’s which had rarely thrown the ball so far this season, opened with a long pass, but the ball was fumbled back to the Knights and Borgia had possession once again.

While Borgia did not take advantage of that turnover, the Knights did make St. Mary’s pay after Evan Zeitzmann recovered a fumble at the St. Mary’s 29.

That led to a five-yard touchdown pass from Baumstark to Jacob Haskins with 4:30 to play in the quarter. The extra-point kick went wide and Borgia led, 13-0.

After taking another punt, the Knights pushed for another touchdown and Baumstark ran in from 17 yards out with 51 seconds to play. Ray Smith ran for the two-point conversion and Borgia was up 21-0 after 12 minutes of play.

In the second quarter, the Dragons rallied to get a 12-yard run by Brandon Polito with 4:55 left in the half. Kevin Hennessey kicked the extra point and Borgia’s lead was cut to 21-7.

With the Dragons driving once again, Helfrich gave Borgia a boost at the half. He picked off a St. Mary’s pass at the Borgia 30 and returned it 70 yards for a touchdown with no time remaining. Schriewer’s kick made it 28-7 at the intermission.

Neither team could take advantage of opportunities in the third quarter, but the Knights opened the fourth with a touchdown on the first play. Baumstark ran in from one yard out on a keeper to make it 34-7. The extra-point snap was fumbled.

Baumstark carried the ball 16 times for 53 yards and completed 11 of 20 pass attempts for 131 yards and two touchdowns.

Borgia ran for 88 yards and threw for 131.

Borgia recovered four fumbles (Evan Zeitzmann, Nick Monzyk, Dean Lockhart and Dominic Struckhoff) and intercepted one pass (Helfrich).
