Notre Dame’s defense certainly earned praise on Friday night with a dominant performance in a 27-0 road win over Palisades

<p "And we quietly take offense. So we went out, did our job tonight and got the dubbing, and that's all that matters"

The Crusaders held the Pirates 45 yards rushing overnight Mason Smeland, who had at least 117 rushing yards in each of his first five games this season, was limited to just 30 yards on 11 carries

Jordan and the rest of the senior Crusaders had a 3-year-old game in mind this week Palisades claimed a 42-8 home win over Notre Dame in the 2017 District 11 Class 3A semifinals

“It’s a great energy booster,” William Jordan said of the shutout. “We all kept talking this week about how three years ago, when the seniors were freshmen, we came down here, lost in the playoffs, 42-8 It was one of our motivations. We didn’t want to have that feeling anymore and we wanted to give them a little glimpse of what it was like « 

“William is an exceptional player for us,” said Stambaugh “He’s a kid who works extremely hard in the offseason and has grown into a really good footballer with a high engine I’m proud of all the guys I am proud of the way our seniors came out because this senior class was held on this pitch three years ago as a rookie and watched us get beaten up hard And that’s not what they wanted to be tonight « 

Senior Nolan DiSora had an interception in the dying minutes of the game for the Crusaders

Palisades saw their four-game winning streak come to an end as the Pirates fell to 4-2 this season

« Their defense was quick Much faster than I expected, » Palisades coach Ramie Moussa said of the Crusaders « On the film we knew how good their first seven were I was impressed with their high school, especially their safeties and how active they were Also when we can’t set the race and you can’t lead the football especially early on you don’t help your defense, you do not help yourself control the stopwatch »

“They reversed the position on us at the start of the game,” continued Moussa “We were stuck in our own territory the whole first half It’s huge The game of possession on the field is huge That makes us bad I don’t apologize Mason fell on this first game and it was as if the sails were out He had a slight injury, enough to keep him away We tied him up and put him back on in there and it wasn’t the same We need to be able to get answers when teams stop us « 

The Crusaders will look to continue their undefeated paths on Friday night by welcoming Pen Argyl

The victory over Palisades proved that opponents have more than Notre Dame offense to worry about

“We were getting ready all week to stop the running back, the running game,” Rivituso said “This article that came out my first year We read this every day this week We didn’t want it to happen. repeat This year our defense is a completely different team We have a totally different attitude I feel like it’s on the next one now We raised our hand so we have to move on to the next one «
