St. Anne’s-Belfield’s football team has figured out what works for the Saints offensively — balance in the ground attack.
And whenever they’ve been able to get to it, things have worked out pretty well for STAB.
It worked out Monday night in a 36-0 drubbing of Kenston Forest where the Saints spread the rock between Amani Woods, Thomas Harry and Gabe Decker in an 8-man clash. Woods led the way with 159 yards and two touchdowns out of the gate on 15 touches, averaging 10.6 yards at a clip. Harry scored twice too with 76 yards on 11 carries and Gabe Decker rounded out the three-headed monster with 71 yards on 10 carries.
With Harry throwing for 115 yards and a score with Elijah Johnson hauling in 61 of those on two catches and Decker grabbing a 54 yard touchdown, STAB had all the offense it needed.
Decker rounded out a strong performance by leading the Saints in tackles with eight total stops, seven of them solo. Will Edelson stuffed Kenston Forest in the backfield three times while Taylor Miller, Jack Colavincenzo and Joe Ambrosi each totaled 2.5 tackles for a loss.
The STAB defense held Kenston Forest to just 101 yards of total offense on the night and allowed just three third down conversions in 12 attempts.
STAB finished with 423 yards of total offense on the night and led 28-0 at the break.
The Saints host Virginia Episcopal Friday at 5 p.m. in a critical VISFL contest.
