Anticipate, Devastate, Dominate. That precisely described the Frosh Marauders’s defense as they played the Vacaville Bulldogs last Thursday, October 1. In a game plagued by penalties and turnovers, this game was decided by the Marauder defense. After giving up big plays on the outside edge to a fast Vacaville Bulldog team most of the game, it was the Marauder defense that showed up in the 4th quarter in the come from behind crowd pleaser.
It was a “pleasant” Thursday afternoon as the Frosh Marauders faced their first Delta League opponent this season – the Pleasant Grove Eagles, on September 24. Unfortunately for the Eagles, the outcome was far from pleasant after “Jesuit Law” – Bryce Law that is – prevailed. Law’s performance at Kicker (3 out of 5 kickoffs with no returns, 4 for 4 on PATs, a Field Goal), Punter (50 and 69 yards) and Receiver (TD reception with 4.3 seconds left in the 1st half) played a key role in Jesuit’s victory.

In the final seconds of their home opener Saturday September 4, the Freshmen Marauders lost a close game 31-33 to the Yuba City Honkers. Despite the outcome, running back Jackson Canaan showed his ability to shred the field, racking up over 220 all purpose yards and 4 TDs for the Marauders, including an explosive opening kickoff return for 80 yards to give the Marauders a 7-0 lead 10 seconds into the game. Quarterback Hank Harvego directed the offensive attack throughout the game, including connecting with wide receiver Cade Cunningham for a 47 yard TD pass and punching one in o
