BUFFALO, N.Y.- Led by a strong defensive effort and potent rushing attack, Aquinas rolled past Bishop Timon-St. Jude, 32-8, in the season opener at Tifft Field.
Donato Clemente ripped off a 33-yard touchdown run in the second quarter to give visiting Aquinas a 12-0 lead.
On the ensuing drive, Timon-St. Jude fumbled the ball, which was recovered by the Li’l Irish.
Aquinas then let running back Luch Pietropaolo do the honors for the touchdown run, putting the Li’l Irish up 18-0 in the first half.
The Aquinas defense has the game changer, holding the Tigers offense to only eight points.
