Two defensive stops in the closing minutes Friday night secured Roncalli’s 20-14 homecoming victory against visiting Brebeuf, a team that entered the contest averaging 43.4 points per game.
The Braves failed to convert a fourth-down pass attempt on the Rebels’ 15-yard line with 7:38 remaining in the game and surrendered back-to-back sacks during their next possession before ultimately turning the ball over on downs.
Class 4A No. 9 Roncalli now leads the all-time series with Brebeuf 15-3. The Rebels have won seven straight and 15 of the past 16 meetings.
