Nativity Bounces Back, Pummels Carson Long
After last weeks 67-0 beat down against Schuylkill Haven, Nativity needed to bounce back. They did just that on a beautiful Friday night as All American Conference foe Carson Long rolled into town. Nativity jumped out to an early lead and never looked back as they toppled Carson Long 42-6.
The Green Wave found the end zone on their first offensive series as quarterback Dominic Piccioni found wide out Jeff Yordy from 54 yards away giving the Green Wave a 7-0 advantage.
On Nativity’s (3-4 3-0) next offensive possession Piccioni found Yordy again this time from 6 yards away, giving the Green Wave a 14-0 advantage.
Senior tailback Gino Dinicola’s 38 yard run capped the Green Wave scoring efforts in the first quarter giving the Green Wave a 21-0 advantage.
On the Green Wave’s first possession of the second quarter Piccioni used his legs to find pay dirt from 6 yards away making the score 28-0.
The Green Wave scored on their next offensive possession again as Piccioni found Yordy for a 44 yard touchdown increasing the Wave’s lead to 35-0.
Nativity would score yet again before the teams entered the locker room this time on a 17 yard Piccioni scamper making the score 42-0 at halftime.
Giving young players experience was the theme in the second half as the Green Wave would hold onto win 42-6.
Senior Dominic Piccioni ended the day with only four incompletions, (7-11 147 yards 3 Td’s 1 Int.). He also ran the ball 6 times for 61 yards and two touchdowns.
Senior Gino Dinicola was the leading rusher however as he ran the ball 4 times for 65 yards and a touchdown.
Senior Jeff Yordy had himself another great game as he hauled in 4 passes for 132 yards and 3 touchdowns.
The Green Wave will now prepare for All American Conference foe Pius X (4-2). The two teams will meet next Saturday @ Pius X, as the Green Wave looks to put a winning streak together.
