Knights QB hits targets in win over Fox

Pre-season questions have been replaced by early season success, with the St. Thomas More Knights looking like knights of old.
By beating Western Conference nemesis the Terry Fox Ravens 21-11 last week, Burnaby’s high school football team is now a solid 2-0 and rising up the 3-A senior varsity provincial charts.
The Knights wasted little time in establishing a tone at Town Centre, jumping ahead 15-0 on the strength of a pair of touchdowns and a safety.
First-year quarterback Anthony DeLazzari fired a 40-yard TD pass to receiver Gabe Nacario to open the scoring. It was followed a few plays later when the STM defence hemmed Terry Fox deep into their zone, where a botched snap led to a two-point safety.
Grade 11 running back Nick Osho put up the second major, striding in from 10 yards.
Although the Ravens pushed back, getting to within four points, the Knights got the last word on another Osho run, his third of the season.
DeLazzari continues to look more confident as each game goes by, completing 17 of 22 pass attempts for 180 yards. He now sits among the province’s top-10 quarterbacks, completing 68 per cent of his passes and 275 yards over two league games.
The young pivot was also successful in spreading the success, with seven different receivers making catches.
Osho took the ball 20 times and accounted for 157 yards rushing.
Defensively, Kaishaun Carter racked up four tackles, while Luca Iallanardo picked up three.
The Knights now face the Kelowna Owls on Friday, 4:30 p.m. at Burnaby Lake complex.
