Brother Rice capped off a perfect regular season with a 20-7 victory against rival Detroit Catholic Central in the A-B Division game Oct. 25 at Ford Field during the annual Catholic League Prep Bowl.

After taking a 3-0 lead into halftime and controlling play for the first half, Rice ran away from Catholic Central in the second half.

A 36-yard touchdown run by Brian Walker gave Rice a 10-0 lead in the third quarter, and then Alex Malzone hit Corey Lacanaria for a 21-yard touchdown pass on the first play of the fourth quarter.

"It was a good game. Beating Catholic Central, they're so good, and it was good to see our kids play their kind of game this time," Rice coach Al Fracassa said.

Catholic Central got its only score of the day on a 6-yard touchdown pass from Sean Birney to Nicholas Cococetta.

Rice outgained Catholic Central 299 total yards to 110.

Rice now leads Catholic Central in the overall rivalry between the two schools by one victory with a record of 29-28-1 against the Shamrocks.
