Playing their fourth road game in six weeks Cabrini traveled to Grosse Pointe Woods University Liggett for a 1:00pm Saturday afternoon Homecoming Football contest.
The Monarchs opened the contest scoring on a four yard bootleg keeper run by Quarterback Carson Bradley. The point after was lost with a high Center snap. The six point lead did not last long as Liggett took the ball 75 yards on the ensuing possession to score the tying touchdown. The extra point was missed and the score was tied at six all. The score remained tied through the remainder of the first quarter.
In the second quarter the Monarchs took control of the game with two touchdowns with a mix of passing and run plays to a host of players. A pass to Joel Corvaia on third down to keep the drive alive at the Liggett 45 yard line. Also in the mix on the drive was Ryan Kugelman with a 35 yard catch and run to the four yard line. The touch down drive was capped by a Quarterback sneak by Carson Bradley with the extra point kick by Owen Tomsic for a 13 to 6 Cabrini lead. The second touchdown of the quarter was set up by a Liggett fumble recovered by Charlie Kieselbach. A hard running combination of Ryan Kugelman and Bradley led to the Monarchs third touchdown of the game by Bradley on another quarterback sneak and another extra point by Tomsic for a Monarch halftime lead of 20 to 6.
The third quarter was scoreless by both teams. In the fourth quarter Kugelman and Trevor Waltonbaugh combined for hard running ground attack that led to a Kugelman 18 yard touchdown run and another extra point by Kicker Own Tomsic for a 27 to 6 fourth quarter lead. Liggett would score another touchdown late in the fourth quarter and the two point conversion failed to make the score 27 to 12. Liggett would get the ball back and would drive to the Monarchs 25 yard line but the drive was stopped with an interception by Nick Baccella at the 10 yard line to close out the game.
