More from Taylor

Here’s Taylor again this time in the running game and it’s another Roadrunner touchdown. That lead now doubles to 14-0.

Benet tries to get something going with Jake Hoeppel but her can’t get away from Gabe Kaminski and he’s brought down for a loss.

The Taylor show continues as he gets the short Malachuk pass and picks a huge gain setting Nazareth up near the redzone.

Pierce Walsh Fires Up Benet

Redwings get a little spark in the second half starting with Peirce Walsh coming at Malachuk like a runaway train and brings him down.

But the offensive struggles continue as the Roadrunner defense also gets involved in the scoring after a safety by Kaminski. 30-0 Nazareth.

Benet gets the goose egg off the board
