It doesn't matter the league or conference, all St. Thomas does is win football games at home.

The Tommies rode sophomore running back Hope Adebayo and a dominant defense to their 30th consecutive regular season victory at O'Shaughnessy Stadium, a streak that stretches back to 2014.

They overcame two special teams gaffs to defeat Marist 27-7 and improve to 4-1 in Pioneer League play and 5-2 overall.

Adebayo, who entered the game second in Pioneer League action in rushing at 83.8 yards per game, topped that total in the first half when he had 112 yards on 12 carries, including a 30-yard score. He finished with 191 yards on 27 carries with two scores.

The St. Thomas defense didn't allow that many yards in total, holding Marist to 167 yards while the Tommies gained 392. Senior defensive back Luke Glenna had an interception and a fumble recovery in the first half, but it was far from a blowout early because of issues with the St. Thomas punting unit.

Punter Colby Gartner had a snap go high over his head on the final play of the first quarter, which gave Marist the ball 1st and goal from the Tommies two-yard line. The Red Foxes would grab their lone score of the game on the first play of the second quarter, a quarterback keeper by Austin Day.

Another special teams miscue midway through the second quarter, this time when Tommies quarterback Cade Sexauer took the snap and went to punt, gave Marist the ball at the St. Thomas 24. Six plays later, the Red Foxes had it fourth-and-goal on the Tommies' two-yard-line when defensive back Isaiah Hall sacked Day for an eight-yard loss.

St. Thomas opened the second half leading just 13-7. They immediately forced a three-and-out and went on a 15-play, 83-yard drive that was capped by Sexauer lunging into the end zone on fourth-and-goal from the one to make it 20-7.

The senior QB passed for 139 yards and a score and also rushed for 34 yards and that third quarter touchdown.

Adebayo would cap the scoring on a 28-yard run with 5:55 left in the game.
