The Olympian Freshman football team defeated Marian Catholic 21-0 on Monday. Thorpe scored 3 rushing TDs (2 by Shawn McHose and I by Justin Canalley). The star of the game was the swarming Jim Thorpe defense. Terry Moll & Sean Green each had interceptions, Green’s came in the endzone to end a Colt scoring threat. Another Marian drive was stopped deep in Thorpe territory when Pete McGuire forced and recovered a fumble. In all the freshman Red Swarm forced five turnovers. Olympian Joel Nieves scored on defense when he recorded a safety on an attempted punt. Congratulations to the freshman team.
The Olympian Freshman Football Team has evened its record at 3-3 following 2 dominate performances against Minersville.Â Last week the Freshman shut out Minersville at home 14-0. They followed that with an impressive 26-6 win at Minersville earlier this week. The Special Teams set the tone on the opening kickoff. The Miner return man fumbled and Ryan “Frenchy” Boileau scooped up the loose ball returning it all the way for an Olympian TD. The Thorpe defense dominated the Miners lead by Joel Nieves. Nieves recorded multiple sacks and punished ball carriers all evening. On offense, Shawn McHose scored on a 30 yd run and Terry Moll scored twice (once on a kickoff return and on a reception from QB Sean Green). The Freshman look to continue their momentum when they play at Pocono Mtn West next Tuesday.
