3 keys to Notre Dame-Fairfield football
St. Paul 57, Notre Dame 20 (Oct. 19)
Too many mistakes: "We get to a point and shoot ourselves in the foot with a bad snap or a penalty," said coach Ted Boynton. "We get to a brick wall, then we can't get around it or over it." The young, inexperienced Lancers continue to make too many mistakes.
First-quarter injury: Marcus Fulton, who damaged Weston the week before with four TDs, got injured in the first quarter and did not return. The Lancers' offense was diminished in his absence. He had scored on a 57-yard seam pass in the first quarter.
Potent opposing quartback: Logan Marchi, who is being recruited by colleges, was in control of the St. Paul offense, moving out of the pocket nimbly and throwing with precision. At 6-foot-1 with size and speed, he was quite difficult to defend.
Next game: Notre Dame-Fairfield (0-6) at New Fairfield (4-2) on Friday at 7 p.m. in a SWC interdivisional game.
