paulweek12016What a difference a year makes. Last year the Bishop Shanahan Eagles started 0-3. This year, the Eagles are off to a 2-0 start after beating a physical Glen Mills team, 29-6.

The score was not as indicative as Shanahan dominated the entire game with their spread offense, which led two touchdown drives of over 85 yards. Meanwhile, Glen Mills was smothered by Shanahan’s defense to the tune of only 11 first downs. It was a rough day for Glen Mills, as the Battling Bulls had more penalties than first downs.

The Eagles got on the board early, when Nick Skulski hit John Kozinski on a 16-yard pass. The lead grew to 15-0 on another Skulski pass, this time to Brendan Dearing (25 yards). Dearing had a huge day, hauling in eight passes for 170 yards.

The floodgates continued to open, as Liam Dearing scampered in from ten yards out for a 22-0 lead at halftime. Shanahan’s final score came on a Nick Skulski two-yard run.

Glen Mills averted a shutout, when Quadir Gibson took a screen pass 75 yards.

After the game, Shanahan coach Paul Meyers felt his offensive line, “stepped up against a good physical team. It was a good win. We need to cut down on the penalties (8-64 yards).”

Nick Skulski threw for 215 yards, Brendan Dearing had 170 yards receiving & 192 all purpose yards for Shanahan. Glen Mills’ bright spot on offense was Quadir Gibson with 100 yards receiving & 184 total yards.
