ELK GROVE, CA (MPG) – The No. 6 ranked Jesuit High School varsity football team continued to roll in Delta League play on Friday night with a 28-7 victory at Cosumnes Oaks.

The Marauders are now 7-1 overall and 4-0 in the DL with their only loss coming on October 1 at home against Clayton Valley Charter of Concord. Jesuit got on the scoreboard quickly on Friday as junior running back Caleb Dixon returned the opening kickoff for a touchdown.

Following a turnover on downs from the Wolfpack (3-6, 2-3 DL), junior quarterback CJ Lee completed a 55-yard pass to Dixon for the score. Senior Anthony Seibles ended Cosumnes Oaks’ next drive, as he intercepted senior quarterback Ranvir Malhi.

The Marauders kept their foot on the metaphorical gas pedal to begin the second quarter with Seibles dashing into the end zone to complete the scoring opportunity that he created. Cosumnes Oaks turned the ball over again midway through the third period, leading to a 28-yard TD pass from Lee to senior Trenton Dewar.

Junior tight end/defensive end George Hemmen nailed the extra point kick, as he successfully did four times on Friday night, to give Jesuit a commanding 28-0 lead. The Wolfpack avoided the shutout with a one-yard rushing score from sophomore running back Brandon Lambert in the fourth quarter. Senior kicker Anu Vigneswaran knocked through the PAT. The Marauders ultimately defeated Cosumnes Oaks 28-7.

On defense, senior outside linebacker Tatum Pappas had a team-high seven tackles with four solo and one for a loss of yards. Junior strong safety Drew Vassar recorded the only sack. Seibles and senior cornerback Cormac O’Flaherty each had an interception.

Jesuit has arguably its toughest matchup of the season this upcoming Friday, on the road at No. 7 ranked Elk Grove (5-3, 4-0 DL). Kickoff is scheduled for 7:15 p.m.
