Cardinal Stritch 22, New London 20

NEW LONDON — The Wildcats dug an early 22-6 hole that was just a bit too much in a tough 22-20 home loss to the Cardinals at Recreation Park.

After Payton Wilson ran for an 18-yard touchdown to get the Wildcats (0-2) on the scoreboard first, the Cardinals scored three straight times for a 22-6 lead after the first quarter.

The score remained the same at halftime, but the ‘Cats had a big third quarter to get back in the game.

Wilson found Parker Ruble for a 45-yard scoring strike, and connected with Jaden Keys for the two-point conversion to make it a 22-14 deficit. Wilson and Ruble connected again from eight yards out, but the two-point pass fell short.

Neither team scored in the fourth quarter.

For New London, Wilson was 16-of-26 passing for 212 yards with 2 TDs and an interception. Ruble caught nine passes for 142 yards and both scores, while Keys added three catches for 54 yards.

Bellevue 49, University School 14

BELLEVUE — The host Redmen dominated visiting University School for a 49-14 non-conference win Friday night at the Bellevue Athletic Complex.

Senior receiver Caleb Marshall had four receptions for 117 yards, including touchdown grabs of 19-, 17- and 63 yards.

Keegan Ray ran for 97 yards and three touchdowns while going 8-of-11 passing for 170 yards. In addition, sophomore Mason Miller finished with 100 yards and 10 carries, helping the Redmen finish with 265 yard rushing as a team.

Ray hooked up with Marshall for the first score with 9:05 left in the first quarter, then added touchdown runs for four and eight yards before the quarter ended as the Redmen opened up their 21-0 lead.

A Bellevue fumble led to a 40-yard Nic Pujolas halfback option pass to Parker Crowley that got the Preppers on the scoreboard, but the Redmen answered with a six-play, 67-yard drive that Ray capped with a two-yard touchdown run.

Ricky Radtke got that score right back for University School with a nine-yard run, set up by his 29-yard toss to Pujolas. But Bellevue answered with Ray hitting Marshall for the 17-yard scoring to make it 35-14 at the half.

Ray and Marshall struck again in the third quarter with the 63-yard touchdown bomb, with Jack Howey starting the running clock with his four-yard score with 7:37 left to play. Brock Nutter was a perfect 7-of-7 on conversion kicks to finish the scoring.

Bellevue (2-0) limited University School to 61 yards rushing.
