St. Mary 31, Sinclair 0
The St. Mary Monarchs completed a sensational turnaround season as they captured the Senior Tier II championship with a 31-0 win over the Sinclair Celtics. In 2011, the Monarchs program suffered through a winless season in which their two programs (Junior and Senior) were outscored 314 to 71. They were prepared to carry on in Tier I however a declining enrollment left them with insufficient numbers to field a Junior team, a prerequisite for continuing in Tier I. Reluctantly playing in Tier II, the Monarchs would dominate their opposition as they scored 257 points while allowing a miniscule 3 in the seven games that they played. Each game was won by at least 26 points.
In the championship game, Nathaniel Fermin put the Monarchs on top midway through the opening quarter with a 15 yard scamper. Two minutes later Mekai Clarke was on the receiving end of a 21 yard touchdown strike. Fermin then unleashed a 53 yard gallop to extend the Monarch lead to 21. The Celtics found themselves with an opportunity to reduce the deficit when Darryl During scooped up a fumble and carried the ball 63 yards to the Monarch two yard line. However on the next play the Monarch defense came up big and recovered a Celtic fumble. In the final two minutes of the half, the sure footed Tyler Decarios split the uprights from 36 yards and Damien White, on a keeper, reached the house from the two. There was no scoring in the second half.
