Holy Cross is hoping to patch up the holes in a defense that has allowed an average of 35.2 points per matchup. They will square off against Beechwood at 7:30 p.m. ET on Friday. Both teams are out to turn their luck around after having lost tight contests in their previous games.
The Indians had victory within their grasp but couldn't quite capture it last Friday as the squad lost 26-25 to Ludlow. Brandon McClendon put forth a good effort for the losing side as he caught three passes for 106 yards and two TDs. This was the fourth game in a row in which McClendon had over 100 receiving yards. McClendon scored three touchdowns overall-- his season high.
Meanwhile, it was a hard-fought contest, but Beechwood had to settle for a 17-14 defeat against Newport Central Catholic. Things were expected to be close, but in this case the rankings mixed up the winning team.
Holy Cross took a serious blow against the Tigers the last time the two teams met in October, falling 68-6. Can Holy Cross avenge their loss, or is history doomed to repeat itself? We'll soon find out.
