Benilde-St. Margaret’s – W, 20-19 over No. 3 (4A) Holy Angels

Benilde-St. Margaret’s found a way to win by the smallest of margins, using a pair of special teams plays to nip the Stars in Week 6.

Trailing by six late in the fourth quarter, senior Braeden Fitzgerald blocked a Holy Angels punt to give the Red Knights a short field. Quarterback Tommy Anderson converted the pivotal play into points, connecting with Turner Wine to tie the game at 19. Henry Wolfe’s extra point put the defending Class AAAA champions ahead by one.

Holy Angels quickly moved down the field on the ensuing drive to set up a potential game-winning, 27-yard field goal. This time, it was the Red Knights field goal block that rose to the occasion, deflecting the low kick to keep the hosts record perfect at 6-0.
