Junior wide receiver Ethan Bechard runs with the ball as junior defensive back Will Alexander goes to tackle him Saturday at Larry Wilcox Stadium.

Defense won the day during the Benedictine football spring game with a final score of 12-10.

Only two touchdowns were scored in the game and the halftime score was just 2-0 with a safety on the second to last play of the half.

Coach Larry Wilcox said he was more than pleased with how the defense looked.

“I was static about how well the defenses played,” Wilcox said. “That is a good foundation to go into next season with.”

Wilcox was also happy with the relatively football friendly weather they had on game day since the forecast leading up to the game implied otherwise.

“I was glad we were able to do it,” Wilcox said. “We had a pretty conducive day for it and sort of a football day.”

Most of the notable offensive players for the Ravens didn’t see much playing time and Wilcox said the lack of success doesn’t worry him.

“Offensively I’m confident we’ll click with all the weapons we got,” Wilcox said. “Some people we only played just a few plays and we don’t need to see them and we know what they can do.”

Wilcox said this game gave him and the staff a good look at players that needed it.

“Some other guys we wanted a better opportunity to evaluate them,” Wilcox said. “On the whole I thought it was something we really needed and it turned out pretty well.”

The spring game was also the final game that will be played on the field as Larry Wilcox Stadium will be getting new turf for the 2019-20 season.
