Marian (2-1, 0-1), ranked No. 8 in Class 5A, struggled to find consistency on offense. The Hurricanes put together multiple sustained drives in the first half, but were forced to punt on their first six drives.
Quarterback Patsy Ricciardi (pictured above) led the Hurricanes with 34 yards rushing, and running back Luke Rogers finished with 28 yards on the ground.
Marian did find the end zone late in the fourth quarter as quarterback Joe Cimino threw a 46-yard touchdown pass to Bryce Radcliffe.
While the score will not show it, the Hurricanes managed to find some positives moving forward.
“That was one of the biggest lines and linebackers that we will see in the conference, and as an offensive line, we will improve because of that,” said Marian Central senior lineman Thor Paglialong.
