Uniontown scored first but North Catholic responded in a big way en route to a 56-14 Big East Conference victory on Friday at Bill Power Stadium.
The Red Raiders (0-6, 0-8) recovered a fumble when Cam Walton fell on a loose ball and Jake Shiley pulled in an 11-yard touchdown reception from Torry Robinson at 10:15 of the first quarter and a 7-0 lead after Clay Berkebile made the first of two PATs.
The Trojans’ Anthony Serventi scored the first of four straight touchdowns on an 11-yard run at 6:40 of the opening quarter and tied the game at 7 on the first of six extra points by Will Kunzmann.
Serventi scored on runs of 18 and 15 yards, and pulled in a 22 yarder from Zach Rocco in the second quarter to push North Catholic’s advantage to 28-7 at halftime.
Pierce Khoury scored on a two-yard run at 9:28 of the third quarter to extend the Trojans’ lead to 35-7.
Uniontown responded with a touchdown drive of its own when Robinson ran for 35 yards and scored on a one-yard run over the pile to cut the deficit to 35-14.
North Catholic (6-0, 6-1) got the touchdown back on the next drive when Nick Maher pulled in a 23-yard reception from Rocco for the score and a 42-14 lead at 4:11 of the third.
Maher, who also had a 74-yard catch, is the son of Uniontown graduate Jerry Maher. He totaled five receptions for 161 yards, two touchdowns and an interception.
Maher had a 30-yard touchdown reception from Rocco in the fourth quarter and Liam Staub capped the scoring with a four-yard run with 1:37 remaining.
The Red Raiders are at Elizabeth Forward (4-2, 5-2) next week in conference play at 7 p.m.
