Titus Beacham turns the corner on the way to an 80-yard touchdown run during Friday's spring game at Roffino Stadium.

Three weeks of spring football practice at Bishop Lynch came to a thrilling end Friday with the annual Black & White Game at Roffino Stadium and the 2015 version saw an opportunistic Team Black come out on top by a 34-13 margin.

Team Black scored 20 points in a little more than five minutes during the pivotal second period and held a 34-7 lead after three quarters over Team White. The game saw its share of spring jitters — seven total fumbles, three turnovers and a few bad snaps — but it also provided more than a few highlights.

Jermaine Mask scored the first of his two touchdowns in the opening period, taking the ball around right end for a three-yard score. Sergey Blansit added the PAT for a 7-0 Black lead.

Once Team White had shaken off some early rust, Ryan Corcoran put the squad on the board early in the second period with a two-yard plunge. Blansit tied the game with another successful point after.

However, Team Black didn’t take long to respond as Titus Beacham went 80 yards to paydirt on the very next snap, putting Black ahead for good at 13-7. Two plays later, Nodebe Ifeacho pounced on a White fumble at the 4 and scored on the next play with a four-yard touchdown run to make it 20-7 following Blansit’s kick.

With 4:06 left in the half, Ifeacho scooped up another White fumble and ran 20 yards untouched for a score that made it 27-7 at the half.

Late in the third period, Mask broke free from a couple of would-be tacklers and sprinted past the remaining defenders for a 35-yard touchdown and a 34-7 lead. Team White drove 80 yards on its ensuing possession, a drive that included a 15-yard run from Alex Lara, a 16-yard pass from Tristan Smith to Trapp Hawthorne and a 26-yard completion on fourth down from Smith to Sam Beasley. Smith hooked up with Nico Jordan for a two-yard score to cap the drive and end the scoring for the night.

Team Black outgained Team White by a 215-145 margin, despite White picking up three more first downs (13-10).  Mask led Black with 46 yards on the ground, while Davis Peck completed 7-of-9 passes for 61 yards.

Corcoran led all rushers with 49 yards on 11 carries, Smith passed for 89 yards and Michael Brown hauled in a pair of catches for 31 yards to pace Team White.
