The St. Dominic Savio Eagles football team suffered its second loss of the season to Class 4A-Division II Salado 42-17.
While the Savio Eagles hung tough early with the bigger, deeper Salado Eagles, Salado's depth and talent eventually wore Savio down.
This Friday our Eagles face another tough road test against another public school in the Class 2A-Division I undefeated Thrall Tigers in Thrall at 7:30.
Members of the Timothy Team, a group of Savio peer ministers who serve the school in areas of faith formation, gather for prayer in our Marian Prayer garden. As part of the Timothy Team seminar, these Juniors and Seniors spend class time working to prepare for liturgies, retreats, service opportunities and other faith-building projects. They also read, analyze, and discuss a variety of theological texts and have dedicated time for prayer and reflection in order to help them to grow as servant leaders in the image of Christ in their service to their community.
Freshman kicker Nathan French drilled a 42 yard field goal with 47 seconds remaining in the game to give the Eagles a thrilling 17-16 come from behind victory over previously unbeaten Geneva School of Boerne.
Geneva came into the game with a 23 game win streak over the past two and a half years. It appeared the streak would remain in tact after Geneva took a 16-14 lead late in the game. However Coach Joe Gutilla's Eagles refused to quit and marched the ball to the Geneva 35 to set up French's game winner. Johnny McNaughton's interception on a Geneva Hail Mary sealed it for Savio.
The Eagles travel to face Salado High School on Friday at 7:30pm.
