St. Joseph’s finally got its starting QB back on Friday — but it wasn’t enough in the loss to Perkiomen.
The Wolves fell 50-21, as they played the role of home team on the field of Bishop Guilfoyle. SJCA kicked off early, at 5:30 p.m., as the offense got an early start, too.
For the first time this season, with Brendan Robinson under center, St. Joseph’s drove down the field on its opening possession and scored a touchdown.
“We had a great effort from our boys tonight on both sides of the ball,” Wolves coach Murray Fetzer said.
SJCA (0-3) scored just six combined points in its previous two losses so, although Friday’s defeat proved to be another lopsided one, it still showed progress. Robinson, whom Fetzer previously called the heartbeat of the team, threw two touchdown passes as Jared Stormer and Zac Sechler showed flashes in the backfield.
It was the first game of the season for Perkiomen (1-0).
Fetzer acknowledged the skill players proved to be too much for his young defense. Stats were not made available from the game, but Fetzer intimated he was trying to look at the positives.
“Our guys never quit and strive to get better every day,” he said. “I’m very proud of the guys willing to give everything they have every day.”
SJCA will have a bye week next week before taking on Bucktail on the road at 7 p.m. Sept. 22.
