Hart went into halftime trailing 13-7, but were able to grab the lead to start the third quarter when Blair pounded the ball into the end zone on a 1-yard run. Just as quickly as Hart scored, so did St. Bonaventure, as the Seraphs drove downfield and made the score 19-14 after Rojas found Gavin Beerup for the passing touchdown. Puailoa Rojas made several plays with his arm, but showcased his quickness as well, escaping several potential tackles for losses and turning them into big gains. “The biggest thing is the guys need to tackle better,” Herrington said. “We had (Rojas) for a loss a number of times and they end up getting positive yards.” After Rojas scored again on a 14-yard rushing touchdown, the Indians attacked quickly, as Johnson found Tomaszewski on a 36-yard touchdown pass. The two-point conversion made the score 25-22 at the end of the third quarter. After St. Bonaventure took a 32-22 lead in the beginning of the fourth quarter, Johnson again was able to get his team into the end zone quickly, finding wide receiver Drew Munoz for a 40-yard score. “He’s been playing amazing the last few weeks,” Colangelo said of his quarterback. “As you see 36 points on the board. He’s doing everything he can do for this team and we have to support him, we have to help him out.” Johnson found Jacob Montes in the end zone with less than two minutes in the game, giving Hart the 36-32 lead. However, St. Bonaventure drove down the field and scored with 19 seconds left, giving them the 39-36 victory.
