Game 2 of the GridIron Alumni Football Weekend in Savannah Georgia

A great job by Dean Moesch of Moesch Media recapping the GridIron Alumni Football games this past weekend. It was a grand turnout by Savannah, and the excitement was in the air. Enjoy Deans take on the second game on Saturday night at Memorial Stadium, Benedictine Alumni vs. Savannah Christian Prep Alumni.

The massive crowd at Memorial Stadium last night set a Gridiron Alumni record for the most fans in attendance since these style games have been played. With the majority on-hand being the Benedictine faithful, the Cadets restored glory in front of their packed stands with a 21-3 win.

After trading turnovers on the first couple possessions, the ...Raiders took advantage of a Cadet fumble with Pat Maleki's 41 yard field goal to take a 3-0 lead. BC Quarterback, Alex Hunt, entered the game in the second quarter and capped off a balanced rushing attack with a 5 yard touchdown run with 1:35 left in the first half to make it 7-3 Cadets. Running backs Patrick Smith, Brandon Mell, Carlos Williams and John Williams all had tough runs on the scoring drive.

The third quarter saw Benedictine's Hunt open up the passing attack some by throwing to targets Andrew Sauers and Brady Cannon. After a long, balanced drive, John Williams took a hand-off from Hunt and plunged into the end zone from 6 yards out to make it 13-3. Former Georgia Southern standout, Scott Shelton, added the extra point to make it 14-3.

Former NFL defensive lineman Josh Mallard led a BC defense with Chris Koncul, Chris Mercer, Garrett Murphy, Bray Buckley, Ryan Sewell, Tommy Davis, Brian Rooks, Jared Padgett, Jeff Fitzpatrick, Bryan McBride. Mike Green, Alan Fleming, Eamon Sheehan, Matt Tuttle, and a host of others that stifled Savannah Christian's offense all night long.

Both Buckley and Fleming had great interceptions.

After stopping the Raiders on what seemed like a promising drive in the beginning of the fourth quarter, the Cadets marched down the field with Hunt scoring his second touchdown of the night from 4 yards out. This proved to be the dagger as the lead grew to 21-3, which ended up being the final.

Josh Mallard was named the Lineman of the Game and Alex Hunt was awarded the game's Offensive Most Valuable Player.

The months of preparation by the men from both schools paid off as the fans began tailgating hours before kickoff and throughly enjoyed themselves the entire game. It was truly a unique occasion that included the father-son combination of Chris and Frank Koncul strapping on the pads together and men that graduated from both schools decades ago getting on the field one last time.

Thanks again to Chris Hall from Gridiron Alumni for putting on this wonderful event!
