Notre Dame and East clashed at Spartan Stadium this weekend and the Titans came out on top in spectacular fashion. The Note Dame Titans offense proved to be unstoppable on Friday night as they were able to rack up 49 points. Meanwhile, the Titan defense shut down the Tartan offense holding them to only a single score for the game.
The game started off with a quick two minute, 72 yard drive. Notre Dame pushed down the field and capped their five play drive off with a Logan Emnett 51 yard run resulting in a touchdown. Notre Dame continued in a similar fashion from there. They proved able to score from any position on the field as Emnett scored five touchdowns and Jake McGuire and Braeden Haney were able to score for one apiece.
The scores piled on as the Tartan defense seemed unable to catch the Titans who outran them in the open field and worse, the Notre Dame backs frequently broke tackles to keep their runs going. All of this resulted in a tremendous game for the backs and saw Logan Emnett break the 1000 yard rushing yard mark for the season.
The Tartan offense, anchored all season by Kyle Flannery who was kept to less than 30 yards rushing, was shut down by Notre Dame’s defense. The Tartans’ seemed to focus on using their quarterback to run to little effect though they alternated the position between Chase Coyle and Kyle Flannery. The Tartans’ greatest offensive success came in the final quarter of the game where a tremendous effort by Chandler Carver carried the Tartans down the field for their longest sustained drive, a 13 play 38 yard drive.
The final score of this rivalry game was 49-8 and was the last game of the season for both teams.
The Tartans finished the season 3-7 with victories over Manchester, Northwest, and Symmes Valley.
The Titans wrapped their season up with a 3-7 record with victories over Green, Manchester, and East.
