Bonner-Prendergast is on quite a roll.
The Friars pounded out 387 yards of total offense and topped the 40-point mark for the second week in a row in a 46-7 romp over Conwell-Egan Friday night.
A week ago, it was the passing connection of Kyle Lazer to James Welde that powered MBAP to a 40-14 triumph over Bishop McDevitt. This time it was a diverse running game that paced the Friars (5-1, 3-1 Catholic League Blue) to their third win in a row.
Mason Peterson, Charles Ingram III, Derrick Jackson III and Oscar Uduma had at least 62 yards rushing as the Friars piled up 346 yards on 29 carries, an average of 11.9 yards per carry.
Peterson led the way with 76 yards that included a 54-yard touchdown run. Ingram raced 29 yards for a TD and finished with 74 yards. Jackson carried the ball three times for 64 yards and two touchdowns. He raced 52 yards for the Friars’ first TD and scored on a six-yard run to close out the scoring. Uduma scored on a 38-yard run and finished with 62 yards on two attempts.
The defense did its part, too, holding the Eagles to 95 yards rushing and 116 yards of total offense.
MBAP scored four touchdowns in a 6-minute, 30-second span in the first and second quarters to break the game open, only needing four touches to put 27 points on the board.
Ingram got it started with his 29-yard TD run with 39 seconds left in the first quarter. Nasim Rhodes-Nelson returned a fumble 34 yards for a TD seven seconds into the second period. Peterson sprinted 54 yards for a score with 7:45 to play in the half, and Welde pulled in a 16-yard TD pass from Lazer with 6:09 remaining in the second quarter to cap the run.
Uduma’s TD run gave the Friars a 40-0 halftime lead.
