STAB football rebounds, beats Kenston Forest

That’s how a team is supposed to bounce back.


A week after St. Anne’s-Belfield fell to Covenant in a blowout at home, the Saints went on the road Friday and doled out a 42-6 blowout win to Kenston Forest, a school in Nottoway County that has been playing 8-man football for awhile before the Saints made the switch full-time this year.


The Saints (1-2) leaned heavy on the run in the win, with Thomas Harry and Amani Woods both surpassing the century mark as Harry rushed for 160 yards and two touchdowns on 10 touches while Amani Woods went for 134 yards and a score on 14 carries. Joe Ambrosi also got in on the act with touchdowns on his two carries, from 10 and 18 yards out in the second half.


Harry ran for a touchdown and threw for another in the first half to help STAB build a 21-6 halftime lead. He hit Gabe Decker with 14 seconds left in the half for a 20-yard touchdown.


With the ground attack clicking, STAB didn’t get behind the sticks very often, piling up 20 first downs and only having to attempt five third or fourth down conversions.


The Saints will try and keep things rolling Friday at home against Virginia Episcopal at 5 p.m.
