Poly keeps cruising despite having just 24 players in uniform and the fact that its only played one home game thus far.

The Panthers (4-0) defeated host Mary Star of the Sea on Saturday, 35-10, behind what coach Chris Schmoke calls “a total team effort.”

The contest was close at 14-10 through most of the third quarter, but the Panthers were able to pull away to hand Mary Star (3-1) its first loss of the season.

“Our defense stepped up huge and kept us in it,” Schmoke said. “Daniel D’Amico is a two-way starter (guard/linebacker) and he did a great job making big plays for us.

Josh Hee, Jack Wilson, Christian Henderson, Will McConnell and Graham Olson all stepped up in shutting down the Stars.

Jackson Hayes caught a pair of touchdown passes. John Genske and Matt Loomis were able to connect with Hayes on TD passes.

Cameron McFarlane and Brady Carter continue to anchor the Panthers running game.

“I was really proud of the kids,” Schmoke said. “They (Mary Star) are a quality team with a good quarterback and a good front (offensive line) that get after it. Our offensive line did a good job of protecting as well.”

Poly will travel once again, this time to Cleveland High of Reseda this Friday at 7 before taking its bye week.

“We only have 24 kids in uniform and each of them made a contribution in the win,” said Schmoke. They are a tough group of kids.”
