BEDFORD – Benedictine bounced back in a big way from last week’s loss to Bedford, routing Holy Name 45-7; and the Bengals did it without their best player.

University of Florida commit Jerome Baker missed the game with a right leg injury, but his replacements more than picked up the slack.

Benedictine quarterback Brian Schoeffler shook off a subpar performance against the Bearcats in week #3.

The junior ran for two touchdowns and threw a third to Warren Saba, who also had an interception.

Sophomore tailback DeCavlion Reese ran for two touchdowns, including a 65-yarder in the fourth quarter that closed out the scoring.

Junior Dontez Rash added another score and the Bengals defense was dominant, shutting out the Green Wave until the first play of the fourth quarter.

Benedictine (3-1, 1-0 NCL) hits the road next weekend to face Columbus Bishop Watterson (1-3).

It is unclear if the Bengals will have Baker back on the field against the Eagles.

Holy Name (2-2, 0-1) returns home to play Padua (1-3).
