MILL CREEK – Junior fullback Dom Catalano ran for four touchdowns as St. Mark’s, ranked 4th in Division II by the News Journal, came alive in the third quarter to beat Lake Forest in a battle of Spartans 37-7 Friday night.

“My line had some great blocks, and I just found the holes and got through them,” Catalano said.

“Dom is a tremendous athlete,” Spartans quarterback Billy Sullivan said. “Our line did a great job of blocking for him and when he’s running, that makes my job a whole lot easier as a quarterback.”

“You can’t teach experience,” St. Mark’s head coach John Wilson explained. “Dom got a lot of experience playing varsity last year and now he’s one of our team leaders as a junior.”

St. Mark’s (2-0) struck first on a 5-play, 93-yard drive that was helped along by a 44-yard end-around from Austin Colmery and capped by a 24-yard rumble to the end zone by Catalano with 10:16 to go in the second quarter.

Lake Forest (0-2) held the ball for all but the final 10 seconds of the first half, as running back Elle Harden pushed through the St. Mark’s defense for a four-yard touchdown run. Cameron Lewis’ kick was good, giving Lake a 7-6 halftime lead.

After a 38-yard pitch and catch between Sullivan and David Balint, Catalano dashed through a hole in the left side for a 31-yard touchdown run to give St. Mark’s the lead for good. After a Lake fumble, Catalano added his third rushing touchdown, a 10-yard score, with 42 seconds to go in the third quarter. He would add his fourth on a 41-yard touchdown run early in the fourth to open up a 28-7 lead.

“It’s something about the third quarter for us,” Wilson said. “I was honest with the guys at halftime — we didn’t have the same sense of urgency we had last week against Newark, but we found it in the second half.”
