Bruins entertain Homecoming crowd
PERU — Bobby Morrow and the St. Bede Bruins made sure their Homecoming guests went away disappointed Saturday at the Academy.
Morrow scored three touchdowns as the Bruins rolled to a 35-18 win over the visiting Fulton Steamers. His 24-yard run with 1:59 remaining put on the finishing touches, leading to a loud roar from the SBA student section of "Yes, I believe we will win!"
"It's Homecoming, so we definitely didn't want to lose, and we wanted to get a push going in to the playoffs. We're going to be 3A this year, so it's going to be pretty tough. (We) want to get a good seed," said Morrow, whose three touchdowns matched a career high.
The Homecoming win was extra special for St. Bede quarterback Taggert Venegas, who was celebrating his 17th birthday on the gridiron.
"I'm pretty excited to get the W," he said. "With the alumni coming back, we wanted to go out there and play hard for them. They came to school, so you really want to show them what we're all about."
SBA coach John Bellino joked you always want to win Homecoming because "you'll catch a lot of heat all year if you don't."
