Veritas football wins by mercy rule, 52-6 on Senior Night

October 26, 2012


Veritas defeated Flint Hills Christian, 52-6, Thursday night at the Eagles’ Nest, ending the game by mercy rule with a 46-point lead at the 10:30 mark in the third quarter.

The leading rushers were Alex Lynch with 81 yards, Caleb Holland with 57, and Andrew Harvey with 48. Holland scored four touchdowns, including one on a 38-yard interception return. Harvey had eight tackles and Bryce Boland five as the Eagles’ two seniors were honored on Senior Night.

“It was a good night for our seniors,” coach Doug Bennett said of Harvey and Boland. “We continue to execute. We continue to come out and from the get-go, we’re playing with lots of intensity and physical and establishing the tone for the game.”

Veritas (7-2), the No. 2 seed in the KCAA playoffs, opens at home against Topeka Cair Paravel at 6 p.m. on Tuesday. The tournament includes four teams, with No. 1 St. Mary’s hosting St. John’s Military also on Tuesday. The championship game is Nov. 3.
