St. Peter-Marian senior Steve Flynn did his part to get his team one step closer to a Division 2 playoff berth, and got himself some peace and quiet in the meantime. Flynn, a senior quarterback, rushed for two touchdowns and threw for a pair to lead the No. 5 Guardians to a 33-6 win over visiting Doherty High. "This game would have meant a lot to me no matter what our records were," said Flynn, who played his first game of tackle football just two years ago. "I live in the (Doherty) neighborhood, and I grew up with a lot of their players. They pounded us last year, so if we didn't get them back, believe me, I'd be hearing about it for the rest of my life." St. Peter-Marian (5-2) was solid on both sides of the ball, and showed resiliency and depth. Leading rusher Tre Watson went down with a foot injury on the game's first series and didn't return, but the Guardians were able to take a 6-0 lead in the first quarter. Flynn tossed a 28-yard strike to Noah Burke, and Flynn then capped the drive with a 1-yard keeper.
