(Page 2 of 2)

Clarke junior Joe Truono played a key role in last Saturday's 30-26 victory over Malverne with two touchdowns.

Truono’s first touchdown run was a 20-yarder in the second quarter that included a nifty juke of a Malverne defender at the 5. “He hasn’t had too much of an opportunity but he got the tough yards today,” Boyle said.

The Mules survived a rough first quarter, as the Rams scored on their opening drive, needing just seven plays to go 87 yards with Louw scoring on a 9-yard run. Malverne then had an 85-yard touchdown on the ensuing kickoff called back. Hill, who would leave the game twice in the third quarter after a pair of big hits, steadied the ship with a 40-yard touchdown to finish Malverne’s first drive. On the opening possession of the third quarter, Hill faked a handoff to Jenkins, Jr., bounced outside and ran 37 yards for his second touchdown. “He’s a warrior,” Lockwood said. “He wants it and doesn’t back down.”
