The West Catholic Falcons have a storied football history with many great players, teams and coaches. After tonight’s performance, Tim Kloska has secured his spot amongst the legends. Kloska turned 18 carries into 331 yards, a new West Catholic school record. He also found the end zone five times in the Falcons’ 43-9 win over Forest Hills Eastern.
On the opening drive of the game, West Catholic marched down the field with little resistance. Kloska capped off the scoring drive with a 25-yard run, and the 7-0 lead set the tone for the evening. The defense would add to the first quarter lead when Michael Ignatoski recorded a safety.
Already ahead 9-0, Kloska and the Falcons were off to the races in the second quarter. The talented tailback broke off touchdown runs of 7, 48 and 62 yards to give West Catholic a commanding 30-0 halftime edge. His fifth touchdown, a 19-yard run midway through the third quarter, put the running clock into effect at 36-0.
Forest Hills Eastern got on the scoreboard, halting the running clock, with a touchdown catch by Max Ferrick. West Catholic responded with Elliot Zainea, who toted the football for a 29-yard score. West Catholic held a comfortable 43-6 lead heading into the final frame. FHE would add a field goal to trim down the final count, but it would do little to the outcome.
West Catholic will host their home opener next Thursday when Muskegon Catholic Central comes to town. Forest Hills Eastern remains at home as they play host to Holland Christian.
