Catholic Memorial defends its Catholic Conference title once again

In Catholic Memorial’s pursuit of an undefeated season, all that is left is the Super Bowl.

Eric Perkins and Lesean Sharp each had two rushing touchdowns as No. 1 Catholic Memorial claimed the Catholic Conference title outright for the third consecutive season with a 57-34 win over BC High on Thanksgiving morning in Dorchester.

The Knights will now turn their attention to next Thursday’s Division 2 Super Bowl where they will take on King Philip at Gillette Stadium.

“It means a lot to win the league,” Catholic Memorial coach John DiBiaso said. “Now we would like to go to Gillette and finish it off.”

Throughout the morning Catholic Memorial (12-0) received offensive production from across the roster as it scored 40 points or more for the fifth consecutive game. Along with Perkins and Sharp, Kole Osinubi, Datrell Jones, Carson Harwood, and Jaden Stubbs all found the end zone. Sharp, Stubbs, and Shawn O’Connor had interceptions.

Ben Evee had four touchdown receptions for BC High.

“We got a chance to rest a lot of guys thankfully so a lot of young guys got opportunities,” DiBiaso said. “It was a great day.”

Catholic Memorial exploded for 37 points in the first quarter. JC Petrongolo found Osinubi for a 41 yard touchdown, a bad BC High snap resulted in a safety, and Jones took off for a 23 yard touchdown run to give the Knights a 16-0 lead.

The Knights lead got to 23 on a Harwood 61-yard touchdown scamper before BC High got on the board with a 71-yard catch and run by Evee.

CM’s offensive firepower proved to be overwhelming as Sharp ran for a five yard score before Perkins, off a BC High turnover, broke free for a 28 yard score to give Catholic Memorial a commanding 37-8 lead after one.
