The St. Pius Golden Lions out of Atlanta brought a fierce offense with them Friday as they paid a visit to the Benedictine Military School Cadets and ran away with a 35-0 victory at Memorial Stadium.

Leading the Golden Lions (2-0), was standout quarterback Trey White, who put up three of the five touchdowns, as well as running back and Alabama-committed Geno Smith, who combined to help put up impressive numbers, outgaining the Cadets 430-88 in total rushing yards.

“We knew coming in, as coaches, this was going to be a real challenge for them,” Benedictine head coach Danny Britt said. “I think the boys knew it, too. St. Pius is great and has a great program. They’re a great football team. I am proud of the boys’ efforts. We’re going to go back to work. And we’ve gotten so much better. We’re going to keep fighting.”

The Cadets’ (0-2) first drive netted them only 5 yards against the tough Golden Lion defense. St. Pius took over and finished an 11-play, 85-yard drive that ate much of the first stanza up with a 6-yard TD run from quarterback Trey White.
