Shp Prevails over Don Bosco

Seton Hall Prep made history by defeating Don Bosco Prep 20-7 at home on September 11, 2021. This was the first win for the Pirates against the Ironmen since 1976; SHP has been 0-10 in previous meetings. The game came second in everyone’s mind. On this date twenty years ago the unthinkable happened; America was attacked. Before the game a tribute was given to 3,000 lives lost on September 11, 2001. 

 The first quarter was quiet offensively as Seton Hall scored only 3 points on a 27-yard field goal by Nick Conforti ’22. Bosco answered promptly with Ronnie Heath taking a handoff towards the left sideline and all the way to the house resulting in a 46-yard score. That would be the last time Bosco would score. The Prep continued to march down the field when Jaden Craig ‘22 found star wideout Nick Dunneman ‘22 for a twenty-five-yard touchdown. The half ended with Seton Hall holding on to a 3-point lead. Coach Fitzgerald’s halftime speech sparked the Pirates as they came out with a vengeance. Myles Thomason ’22 was the star of the second half, making unbelievable plays, taking time off the clock, and adding to the Pirates’ lead. Myles ended the game with 25 carries for 131 yards and a touchdown. The Prep showed why their chance at a state title is in view with a historic 20-7 win over the Ironmen.  

SHP’s QB, WR, and RB trio showcased their chemistry again. Jaden Craig completed 18 passes for a total of 270 yards and a touchdown. Myles Thomason continues his impressive senior campaign being impossible to take down. Wide receiver Nick Dunneman had another impressive performance with seven catches for 147 yards and a touchdown. You cannot forget about this motivated defense led by captain Jackson Dowd ’22. The defense caused three turnovers: a fumble recovery by Kevin Agnew ’22 and two interceptions by Dowd.
