Coudriet went 21-30 passing, throwing for 273 yards and four touchdowns. He also rushed for a touchdown. Coudriet avoided the common trap of locking on to one receiver, as he connected with seven different receivers in the victory, four of whom had four or more receptions. Mitchell Reiter led all Flying Dutch receivers with six catches for 66 yards and a score, and Carter Chadsey twice found the end zone, totaling four grabs for 47 yards.
The game was tight at the intermission, with St. Marys nursing a 24-14 lead. The Flying Dutch then scored five second half touchdowns, including four in the fourth quarter, to pull away and secure the win. After defeating Kane twice, St Marys is the clear front-runner to win the D9 North Large School Division title.
Coudriet is improving over his solid 2019 campaign, averaging ten more passing yards per game while cutting down on costly interceptions. Coudriet has 14 touchdowns and only two interceptions this season, a vast improvement over his 13 interception 2019 season. His cleaner play has seen his passer rating skyrocket from 95.2 in 2019 to 121.3 in 2020.
