Eagles eye home opener

September 9, 2005


Boffo in its road opener, Veritas Christian's eight-man football team will bring its high-scoring act home for the first time tonight.

Game time will be 7 p.m. against Topeka Cair Paravel at Youth Sports Inc. Portable lighting will be installed.

Veritas Christian opened last Friday with a 60-22 thumping of Sunrise Academy in Wichita as sophomore newcomer Marcus Holman ran for 245 yards and four touchdowns.

"He has great speed and athleticism," Veritas coach Doug Bennett said of Holman. "The line did a good job, and he knows what to do with it when the hole is there."

Holman wasn't the whole show, however. Senior back Jesse Schultz ran for 176 yards and two TDs.

Topeka Cair Paravel opened with a 44-14 loss to perennial area eight-man power St. Mary's Academy last week.
