After an early two touchdown lead on the road, The St. Pius X Golden Lions had to fight back in the end to hold off the Westminster Wildcats 28-21 in the season opener.

“Our effort was great but we have a lot of work to do with our execution on both sides of the ball,” said senior quarterback Trey White. “Driving 80 yards in four minutes to win the game showed this team’s grit and determination.”

Pius began the game with all the momentum, as it forced Westminster into a punt on its first drive and then methodically moved the ball downfield for a touchdown on its own opening drive. Senior running back Geno Smith made key first down plays on this drive for Pius. He capped the drive off with a 14-yard touchdown run around the outside. Smith finished the game with 135 rushing yards and two touchdowns.
