After a Week 1 victory over Hyde Park, the Broncos look to push their record to 2-0 this week against a Gladiator team that dropped a 26-20 overtime decision at Walther Christian last week. Montini’s defense harassed the Thunderbirds last week, recording ten sacks and setting a school record by forcing two safeties last week. Offensively, three Bronco quarterbacks combined for four touchdowns (two passing, two rushing) as the Broncos rolled up 377 yards of total offense. Christ the King, despite having only 32 varsity players, features a lot of talent on both sides of the ball. Look for the Bronco defense to play hard against the Gladiators’ rushing game and for the offense to continue to stretch the opposing defense.
