LAPLACE – The Comets opened their season with a 41-0 bruiser over Terrebone last Friday night with an opportune defense that gave up 311 yards of total offense, but kept the Tigers out of the end zone throughout with the help of a pair of interceptions and a fumble recovery.

To open scoring, SCC moved the ball 74 yards on 12 plays for a 25-yard field goal by Chris Ilski late in the first quarter.

Then, St. Charles was sparked by Chase Fletcher, who pulled in two touchdown passes from quarterback Philip Sutton on the day. The first was a 64-yarder that came after Ilski’s field goal, making it 10-0.

Jonathan Cancienne made it 17-0 with a deep gash from more than 20 yards out. To set that up, the Comets offense had driven half the length of the field in six plays with under four minutes to go in the second. Coupled with the point after by Ilski, St. Charles went into halftime with a 17-0 score.

Fletcher’s second TD pass came in the fourth quarter, an 8-yard reception from Sutton to go up 24-0 after Ilski’s extra point.

The final score of the game came soon afterward as Matt Walters took a handoff eight yards for the fourth touchdown of the game. The PAT made it the 31-0 final score.

The Comets rolled up 212 yards rushing, mainly through Cancienne and Walters, while Sutton had ten completions for 127 yards and no interceptions. St. Charles had only one turnover, a fumble in the third quarter.

The SCC defense allowed only 51 yards rushing, as the Terrebone’s pass oriented offense amassed 260 yards. Tiger quarterback Neil Robertson was 19-for-34 in the game with 228 yards and two picks.

St. Charles outgained the Tigers 330-to-291 in total yards.
