Redhawks are impressive in all aspects of Friday night's game, and the Spartans are left with a homecoming loss.
Play a complete game. That's what the Marist RedHawks have been waiting to do this season, and on Friday night they did just that. Through an on-and-off drizzle at Marian Catholic, the RedHawks scored through the air, on the ground and on specials teams to earn a 52-27 victory over the Spartans, dampening Marian's homecoming festivities. “We talked about playing a complete game, and it's a thing where our special teams, our offense, our defense, everyone did an absolutely tremendous job (tonight),” Marist head coach Pat Dunne said. Though fireworks were planned for after the game, Marist didn't feel like waiting. The Redhawks lit up the night the very first time they touched the ball. Following a Marian 80-yard touchdown drive that …

Oak Lawn 6, Marian Catholic 2. Spartans advance to Class 4A St. Laurence Regional final, gird for matchup with host Vikings.
Touching All the Bases: Marian Catholic led 2-1 heading into the top of the fifth inning and then the bottom fell out in a 6-2 loss to Oak Lawn on Friday in a semifinal game at the Class 4A St. Laurence Regional. A team that has been plagued with poor fielding all season long picked a bad time to play some of its worst ball. Marian Catholic committed five errors in the inning and allowed Oak Lawn to score five runs. Tony Swistek reached on an error. After a two-strike sacrifice bunt by Steve Childers moved Swistek to second, Oak Lawn looked to tie the game. But it did a whole lot more than that. The next six Oak Lawn hitters reached base, putting the game out of reach. Oak Lawn starting pitcher Bob Kametas was solid, especially after …

RedHawks can deal with overpowering stuff on the mound; their challenge is coping with classmate's untimely death.
The Marist baseball team faced a tough challenge when it squared off against Marian Catholic ace Brett Lilek in a 4-1 setback on Monday afternoon. Lilek is considered one of the best junior pitcher's in the state. Couple that with the fact the RedHawks have struggled to get clutch hits, and one would think the task would prove too much to handle. But the harsh reality of the real world hit the RedHawk program early Friday morning when players learned one of their classmate's--Paul Simmons Jr.--died after collapsing while playing basketball during a senior lock-in at the Southside school. “I can’t speak for the kids on how they feel, but I know their playing with heavy hearts,” RedHawks coach Tom Fabrizio said. Simmons was one of the …

Marian Catholic 4, Marist 1. Spartans commit six early errors, but RedHawks can't take advantage because of overpowering pitching performance turned in by Brett Lilek.
Touching All the Bases: The Marian Catholic baseball team came out slow, committing six errors in the first three innings, but Marist was only able to scratch across one run and the Spartans regrouped to notch a 4-1 victory on Monday afternoon. Marian Catholic ace Brett Lilek settled down and that spelled the end for the RedHawks. Unlike the RedHawks, the Spartans were able to take advantage of Marist miscues, scoring two runs in the first. Rob Cifelli led off the inning with a walk. He would have been out on a grounder to short by the next hitter, but a RedHawk error opened the door for the Spartans. Byron Munoz doubled, knocking in Cifelli, and Jeff Leppellere drove in another run with a sacrifice fly. The RedHawks finally took …
