St. Edmund loses ground contest for first-round playoff exit


Things looked good midway through the second quarter for St. Edmund on Friday night.

The Blue Jays led 12-8 following a 71-yard Jack Miller kickoff return — an advantage that stood as intermission began.

Then the final second half took its toll, and St. Edmund exited the Division IV football playoffs with a 19-12 loss to Catholic High-Pointe Coupee.

St. Edmund finished the season 9-2 with a second straight district championship.

The contest featured a pair of rushing offenses that combined for 90 running attempts and 472 yards.

St. Edmund, averaging over 300 yards a game rushing, was held to 203. Catholic High (8-2) ran for 269 as the teams collaborated on six passing attempts without a completion.

In addition to scoring a pair of touchdowns, Miller was the key offensive component, rushing for 69. In addition to the kickoff return, Miller also scored the game’s first touchdown with a 25-yard run just before the end of the third period.

The Hornets scored one first-half touchdown (8:35) on a Matthew Langlois 22-yard run. That touchdown culminated a scoring drive of nine plays and 58 yard.

Miller put the Blue Jays back out in front 12 seconds later with his kickoff touchdown return.

In the second half the Hornets scored once in each quarter on touchdown runs by Colin Grezaffi. In the third period Grezaffi ended an 11-play, 88-yard march with a nine-yard run.

Then with 4:49 remaining in the game, Grezaffi scored the final touchdown from 20 yards. That touchdown ended a two-play, 27-yard drive.
