From the first few minutes of the game, St.Joe’s Prep dominated the game over Nazareth. Some of it was skill and some of it was luck, including a blocked punt to wind up just a few yards short of the goal line, which allowed St.Joe’s to score. The final score was 59-21. In the first quarter Nazareth scored a single touchdown, when the quarterback ran it in. It was a hard fought touchdown but that and the extra point put 7 on the board for the Lehigh Valley team.
