The St. Peter Knights drive to a second straight senior boys football championship remains in high gear following a 24-7 win over the previously undefeated St. Mark Lions on Thursday.

The Knights scored all of their points in the second quarter on touchdowns by Steve Masterson, Isaiah Harris and Scott Berty and a field goal off the foot of Ryan Begin, whle Lions' lone touchdown came in the third stanza.

The game was significant in that both teams were undefeated heading into the match-up and St. Mark's was thought to be the toughest opponent the Knights would face within the NCSSAA.

After a scoreless first quarter, the Knights got untracked in the second stanza, moving the ball 61 yards on five plays for their first touchdown of the game. The drive included a 26-yard run by Nick Wakim and a 20-yard romp by Harris, while quarterback Steve Masterson scored the major on a five yard counter.

The Knights would go up 10-0 two series later on a 28-yard-field goal by Begin that was set up by a 25-yard interception return by Nick Gauthier.

When the Lions failed to pick up a first down for the fourth series in a row, Harris broke off a 70-yard touchdown run on the Kinghts first play from scrimmage to give St. Pete's a 17-0 lead.

After the Lions failed to pick up a first down yet again, Masteron hit Scott Berty for a pair of remarkable receptions including 15-yard toss that he managed to catch in triple coverage.

With the Knights up 24-0 at half-time, and St. Mark's unable to put together any sort of offence, the outcome of the game was all but certain. The Lions did manage to score in the third quarter, but a flurry of turnovers in the final sealed their fate.

Besides the players already mentioned, Demetri Dalekos and Kristian Lawrence also had strong games for the Kinghts as did Kenny Benoit.

The Knights entered the game coming off a hard fought win over the Sir Wilfrid Laurier Lancers the week before in which one of their starting running backs Stephen Dalekos broke his fibula.

In fact, the Lancers were leading the Knights 7-2 at half-time before they tired and St. Pete's was able to storm back with three touchdowns and a field goal in the second half to win to win 26-7.

The Lions take on the Ashbury Colts in their next game on Oct. 7 before closing out the regular season with a rematch against the South Carleton Storm on Oct. 23.
