St.Pius Trounces Marist in Opener

The high school football season opened up with a shocker on Friday night, as visiting St.Pius roughed up favorite Marist 28-3 before a sold out gathering at Hughes-Spalding Stadium. Marist entered the game as the 4th-ranked team in AAAA, looking to make amends for last year's 21-10 loss to the Lions.
I don't have the game statistics, but I was there to witness a heck-of-a-performance by St.Pius sophomore quarterback Trey White, who completely out-played his much-more heralded Marist counterpart Andy Perez. White threw a couple of touchdown strikes while running the option to perfection. Meantime, Perez and the Marist offense looked confused most of the night, and the defense wasn't much better.
Whether a fan of St.Pius or Marist, it was a perfect evening for football - and what a great place to take the family on a Friday night! I can't tell you how many neighbors I ran into. (Photos courtesy of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution)
