AURORA | At least through four weeks, the 2019 season is almost completely different than the previous one for the Regis Jesuit football team.
In 2018, coach Danny Filleman’s Raiders were 1-3 after four games and had to live with the sting of a seven-point loss to its longtime parochial school rival, Mullen.
The new year has seen Regis Jesuit jump out of the gate at 4-0, which includes Friday night’s intense 30-21 Homecoming victory over the Mustangs, who paid a visit to Lou Kellogg Stadium.
Junior Jordi De la Torre confidently knocked through a 30-yard field goal in the opening minute of the fourth quarter that put the Raiders ahead for good and sophomore quarterback Nicco Marchiol’s short keeper for a touchdown provided the final margin.
Marchiol continued his outstanding start to the season that saw him account for four touchdowns, two rushing along with scoring passes to senior Ty McGuire and junior Clay Nanke.
