"North Catholic rode a Fulmore and a fullback to an upset win against No. 3 Rochester Friday night at Dormont Stadium in the WPIAL Class A quarterfinals.
The Trojans (9-2) held for a 22-15 win and advanced to the WPIAL semifinals thanks in large part to sophomore running back P.J. Fulmore and junior fullback Jarred Fragapane.
When they needed points and a big defensive play they turned to Fulmore. He accounted for all three North Catholic touchdowns, two rushes and one receiving, and made two of the biggest defensive plays of the game, intercepting a pass in the end zone in the first quarter and breaking up another in the fourth.
When North Catholic needed to put the game away, it turned to the 6-foot-3, 215-pound Fragapane. He took direct snaps on two fourth-and-1 conversions in the fourth quarter and converted the first down, the second of which allowed the Trojans to line up in an improbable victory formation."
