Boys Athlete of the Week:

After starting the 2022 season 0-2, the La Salle football program has now won five of their last seven games.

And that includes Friday’s 42-28 victory over visiting St. Genevieve, in a game that wasn’t nearly as close as the score might indicate.

The Lancers had a number of standouts, including Will Clougherty, who once again filled in successfully at QB from David Mysza, and finished with three total TD’s.

Aiden Leyland, Anthony Balurdi, Drew Ward and Thomas Gomez all scored for the Lancers.

But it was senior Andrew Boecking who made things miserable for St. Genevieve on the defensive side of the ball.

Boecking, a two-sport (football & baseball) athlete, literally doubled his sacks total in one night.

The Lancers’ senior had 12 tackles, including five sacks and two tackles for loss.

Boecking also caught a pass and serves as a solid lead blocker for the La Salle running game.
