Galileo V 00-08-00 08
Lowell V 00-08-06 14

At Lowell, right before the half, Galileo took 3 shots into the endzone at the 5 yardline but came away empty in what appears to be a foreshadow to this game’s ending. Lowell put together a drive in the second half and tacked on the 2-point conversion for an 8-0 lead. Galileo answered late in the fourth quarter when Demaje Ardis found running back, Markell Vilce open at the seam. Ardis connected with wideout, Donovan Hasson to tie things up at 8 apiece. The Lions forced a 3-and-out but was unable to finish off the Cardinals despite 3 great passes by Ardis; 1 to Hasson, another to tightend, Miles Mainini, and the last through the hands of Mainini at the goalline. In the overtime period, Ardis was sacked and fumbled in the Lions first play. After two tries, Lowell ended the game on the third try with the same run up the middle.

A slow start did nothing but anger the Young Lions’ high-octane offense and Lowell’s long scoring drive added fuel to the fire. Galileo took 2 plays to break the 8-8 tie and never looked back. The offensive highlights are plentiful with the usual flavors; Tyreke Watts on magnificent cutback scampers, Adrian Poots lofting beautiful passes into the capable hands of Jackie Guo, and the power and speed combo moves of Jeremiah Horne. But the real highlights of the team’s day are two gems worth noting. First of, tiny dynamo, Semir Gebremedhin snagged his first career score on a 2-point conversion. And second, on the ensuing kickoff, coming out of the scrum was sophomore, Pedro Jaime, who left his right shoe on the turf during the spinout, raced 45-yards on the strength of his pink sock for the final score.
