Major credit to the defense as a whole. Shutting out an offense as capable as the Roman offense was is no easy task, but they got it done in amazing fashion. The defense limited the Roman offense to only 184 yards total(97 passing and 87 rushing). Senior AJ Greseszak and junior Nick Rinella both had interceptions for the Explorers as well. Seniors Ryan Brady, Aidan Kerrigan, and junior Matt McDermott were really all over the place on defense. The crew was constantly applying pressure on Roman QB Phil DiWilliams and put a stop to any run threat Roman attempted to have.
This was probably one of the best games played overall by the Explorers, who will go on to play St. Joseph's Prep in the PCL Championship game. The game is set for Friday, November 14th at Northeast High School with kickoff at 7:00pm. I would try to get there as early as possible because there is no parking and traffic will be backed up all the way down cottman. If the Explorers play like the way they did in this game, the championship game should be quite the show.
