ST. PAUL — The St. Paul Indians’ defense shut down Crest of Colony for three quarters, and a freshman quarterback and the offensive line stepped up when needed on Friday night. The result was a 38-24 St. Paul Homecoming win that lifted the Indians to 5-1 on the season.

St. Paul coach Doug Tuck said quarterback Anthony Diskin was forced to leave the game in the first quarter with a shoulder injury. Tuck said he’s unsure how serious the injury is, but as a precaution he sat the quarterback who was filling in for Riley O’Brien, who is out for the season. Tuck turned to freshman Preston Jacquinot, who he said did a good job.

“I think our line really stepped up because we knew we’d have to run a lot more,” Tuck said.

The Indians rushed for 302 yards on 51 carries, throwing the ball just four times for three completions. Two of the completions were touchdown passes thrown by Jacquinot. The young QB threw a 19-yard strike to Paul Schibi in the first quarter. Jacquinot connected with Willie Westhoff from 32 yards out in the second quarter. Dustin Blackmore ran in both 2-point conversions to make it 16-0.

Crest scored when Kyle Hammond returned a kickoff 73 yards, but St. Paul led 16-6 going into halftime.

Trevor Boaz scored on a 12-yard run in the third, and Blackmore scored from 33 yards out, also on a run. Jacob Gard picked up the two extra points after each play to make it 32-6.

Crest didn’t score on offense until the fourth quarter. All three scores in the final quarter came on passes, one from 42 yards and another from 39. Gard ran six yards for another Indian TD in the fourth.

Tuck said the defense played a “heck of a game.” Hammond had been “tearing everyone up,” the coach said, but the Indians held the QB to 64 yards on 22 carries. While he was proud that the defense didn’t allow a score for 3 1/2 quarters, the three scores in the fourth shows that St. Paul needs to shore up its passing defense and be a little smarter, Tuck said.

St. Paul will play in Chetopa on Friday.
