Falcons debut a successful one

Notre Dame College of Ohio made its long-awaited football debut on Sunday night, and did not disappoint.

The Falcons scored seven touchdowns in a 49-0 rout of the junior varsity of Hiram College at Korb Field, in their first-ever football game.

Notre Dame racked up 301 yards of offense, while its defense held Hiram to 80 yards.
Leading the offense was quarterback Derrick Paster, who went 7-for-9 with 138 yards passing, which included a TD pass and two rushing TDs. He threw a 45-yard TD pass to Marlon Gillis and then ran for a 7-yard score in the first quarter to give the Falcons a quick 14-0 lead.

Andrew Davis then blocked and returned a blocked punt 37 yards for another score, which was followed by a Carter Haynes’ 72-yard fumble return – giving Notre Dame a 28-0 lead after the first quarter.

Paster threw for another TD, a 49-yard bomb to Cory DeChiara, and then ran another one in, a 27-yarder as Notre Dame went into halftime up, 42-0.

In the second half, Steven Bell caught a 33-yard TD pass from Maryland Gillis for Notre Dame’s only other score in the second half.

North Ridgeville’s Shane Friend led the Falcons with nine tackles, including one for a loss.
