BY MICHAEL WOJTYCHIW October 8, 2011
In a battle of the Blue against the White, it was the team from the upper division, Brother Rice, that got the victory over its Catholic League counterparts, as it defeated De La Salle 42-14 in a Catholic League crossover Friday night.
All the Crusaders (5-2) needed was the duo of Andrew and Martez Walker, as they rushed their way to an easy victory.
Andrew Walker (six carries, 164 yards) scored all three of his touchdowns in the first half.
“I put it all on my offensive line,’’ said Andrew Walker. “We practice really hard and we know that it will transfer over to game day, so that’s why we go do hard every day.’’
Walker put Brother Rice up early as he scored on a 13-yard run four minutes into the game.
The Meteor defense stiffened the rest of the quarter, however, and the quarter ended with the score 7-0.
That’s when Brother Rice put the game away. The No. 24 Crusaders scored four of their five possessions in the second quarter and never looked back. Andrew Walker scored on runs of 63 and 78 in the quarter.
Martez Walker added 145 yards on 15 carries for Brother Rice. He added a second quarter touchdown as well and had a 30-yard run for a touchdown early in the third quarter as well.
Richard Mayer had the other Brother Rice score, running for a 30 yard score.
Mikale Wilbon led the Meteors (4-3) with 138 yards rushing on 15 carries and had both of De La Salle’s scores, a nine-yard scamper in the first half and a 30-yard run in the second half.
“I actually like these games,’’ said Andrew Walker. “A lot of people don’t like the crossover games, but they’re fun. We get to see different teams and prepares us for teams we are going to see in the future.’’
