Seton Hall Falls to Don Bosco

After a brutal upset to Paramus Catholic at home, Seton Hall Prep traveled to Ramsey, New Jersey, to take on the #1 team in the state, Don Bosco Prep. Last year, the Prep was victorious, defeating the Ironmen for the first time since 1976.  

Don Bosco’s high-powered offense was efficient early. Under the control of quarterback Nick Minicucci, Bosco took the lead early. Minicucci and James Dolan found the endzone resulting in an early 14-0 lead. Prep answered quickly as Liam Londergan ’24 found Brody Davis ’23 for a 17-yard score. However, Bosco could not be stopped in the first quarter. Minicucci drove down the field, and Logan Bush ran in from the one-yard line for a touchdown.

Coach Fitzgerald’s squad answered as Londergan had his second passing touchdown of the game, finding wideout Luke Sudol ‘23 for the score. Jordan McAllister ’23 sacked Minicucci on third and eight, resulting in Bosco’s first three and out. The Prep drove down the field quickly with little time left on the clock. However, on the eight-yard line, wideout Julius Vicari ’24 reached for the goal line but fumbled the ball. Bosco kept the lead at half up 21-14.

Don Bosco came out angry in the second half. Bosco’s defense did not allow a single point in the third quarter and their offense was effective. Logan bush and James Dolan scored again on the ground, expanding the Ironmen’s lead to 21. Seton Hall would find the endzone thanks to Luigi Pantano ’24, but Bosco’s lead was too large. Don Bosco 35 Seton Hall Prep 21.
