The host Salesian High football team stumbled in the early going Friday but quickly got back on track and ran away from St. Patrick-St. Vincent 40-0 in a Tri-County Athletic League Rock Division game.

Salesian (6-1, 2-1 TCAL Rock) scored once in the first quarter but scored four touchdowns in the second quarter to lead 34-0 at the break.

Junior running back De'Angelo Hernandez had 21 carries for 121 yards to lead all rushers. He scored on an 8-yard run with 3:22 left in the first quarter to put Salesian up 7-0.

Senior Trevor Thomas -- who scored two touchdowns -- had four carries for 106 yards. All told, the Pride ran for 329 yards with nine separate runners.

Senior quarterback Zack Boyett, who misfired on his first eight attempts, finally connected with Tyrone Morgan on a 41-yard scoring strike and then hit Morgan again 11 seconds later after a turnover from 19 yards out.

Backup quarterback Dylan Wilson showed some poise in the second half, completing one passes and running for 18 yards, including a five-yard TD jaunt to end the scoring with 7:33 left in the game.

Senior quarterback Christian Bustamante led the Bruins (1-6, 0-3) with 72 yards rushing on eight carries.

Salesian played without standout running back Michael Page, who is sidelined indefinitely with a hamstring injury, according to coach Chad Nightingale.
