Freshman Marcelus Gaines ran four times for 43 yards and two touchdowns, and sophomore Jack Moran had six carries for 48 yards and a touchdown as Birmingham Brother Rice defeated Detroit Southeastern, 58-14, in a nonconference matchup Thursday night.

Brother Rice (2-7), which struggled much of the season, was able to bounce back after being shut out 34-0 last Saturday by U-D Jesuit.

“We had a lot of freshman and JV players that got called up today and had a lot of success,” Brother Rice coach David Sofran said.

Mariano Valenti, Brother Rice’s freshman quarterback, was 11-for-14 for 110 yards and a touchdown.

Matthew Jordan, Matthew Bonasso, Rubin Williams, Allessandro Gonzalez, and Jeff Timko also scored touchdowns for Brother Rice.

The defensive star of the game was Ryan McWood, who had a season-high 15 tackles, including 10 solo tackles and three for a loss, two blocked punts and a safety.

Quarterback Raymond Blevins threw for a pair of touchdowns for Southeastern (1-8), 79 yards to Curtis Murphy and 10 to Corey Jones. Blevins finished 10-for-21 for 181 yards with an interception.
