STAB football holds off Greenbrier Christian

Thanks to an efficient passing attack and a triple-headed monster in the run game, St. Anne’s-Belfield has its third straight win in the books.


The Saints rolled 42-34 over Greenbrier Christian in 8-man Thursday night and the victory puts STAB above .500 after an 0-2 start.


The Saints fell into a 7-0 hole when Greenbrier returned the opening kickoff for a touchdown, but by halftime STAB was largely in control, up 28-14. Thomas Harry ran for three first half touchdowns and threw for another one as part of a huge night for the Saints’ quarterback. He rushed for 185 yards on just 11 touches and threw for another 117 yards on 6-for-8 passing. With Amani Woods (122 yards and a score on 11 carries) and Gabe Decker (80 yards and a score on 11 carries) also clicking, the Saints’ ground game has found its rhythm during this win streak.


STAB extended that lead with Woods and Decker’s touchdowns in the third quarter, holding a 42-14 advantage heading into the fourth. Greenbrier got its offense going in the fourth and scred a trio of touchdowns, though the final one came as time expired with the game out of reach.


Keshawn Fisher hauled in a 63-yard pass for the Saints while Woods tacked on two passes for 35 yards to his rushing total. Elijah Johnson had a 14-yard touchdown catch in the first half.


Joe Ambrosi led the Saints with 7.5 tackles on the night including one for a loss. Fisher, Decker and Jack Colavincenzo also each had a tackle for a loss with.


STAB will look to make it four wins in a row when the Saints host Brunswick Academy Friday October 12.
