Hilton 28, Aquinas 14
The Cadets knocked off Aquinas for the first time in the school history, earning a crucial win for their playoff aspirations.
Each team entered at 2-1. After a scoreless first quarter, Dontae Valion sprinted 76 yards for a Cadets touchdown. With 7:35 left in the half, Jason Bedford punched in a two-yard touchdown to give Hilton a 14-0.
The Lil’ Irish answered just before halftime, with a Will Benjamin touchdown from Tyler Szalkowski.
The Cadets responded on their first drive of the third, with Bedford netting a one-yard score. However Aquinas made it a one-score game once again as Eimaj Giddens rushed for a 33-yard touchdown to make it 21-14.
However, that was as close as they could get as the Cadets held the Lil’ Irish scoreless in the first quarter and Bedford scored another from one-yard out.
