St. Mary's beat South River for the first time in five years, blanking the host Seahawks, 17-0, last night in a non-league matchup.

St. Mary's (2-0) dominated the line of scrimmage throughout the game. The Saints offensive line consisting of seniors Eric Fenwick, Justin Anderson, Damon Rigot, Greg Carobrese and junior Pete Grimm enabled junior running back Jason Lilly to gain 134 yards and a touchdown on 25 carries.

St. Mary's opened the scoring in the first quarter after a blocked punt by Justin Kiernan. Five plays later Mark Keifer kicked a 27-yard field goal to make it 3-0.

The Saints did not score again until three minutes into the third quarter when Brad Davis tossed a 29-yard touchdown pass to Matt Clune. Clune set up that score with a 35-yard kickoff return.

Lilly capped the scoring with 2:00 left in the third quarter with a four-yard run, capping an 11-play 56-yard drive.

The Saints defense collected six sacks, while Keifer kept the South River offense in poor field position with three kickoffs inside of the five.

"It feels good to finally beat South River after five years of trying," said St. Mary's Brad Best. "It gives the kids a good feeling, but they can't enjoy it too long because we have Severn next week."
