The Patriots (7-0 overall, 4-0 in District 9-5A) marched 60 yards on their first possession for a score. Guggenheim scored on a 5-yard run to cap the drive that was aided by a roughing-the-kicker penalty against Holy Cross at the Tigers’ 19-yard line.

Guggenheim scored on a 2-yard run in the middle of the third quarter to extend the Patriots’ lead to 20-0.

On one of the few successful pass attempts in the game by Curtis, backup quarterback Blaine Hebert connected with receiver Tyrone Legette on a 62-yard touchdown toss late in the third quarter for a 27-0 Patriots lead.

Holy Cross (2-6 overall, 1-4 in district) avoided the shutout with a short touchdown run by quarterback Chandler Fields late in the game.
