Pulaski hasn’t beaten Notre Dame since September 2012, but the Red Raiders might have the weapon needed tonight: Senior Dylan Hendricks has rushed for more than 600 yards and 11 touchdowns in the first three games of the season.

Trailing 14-7 in the first quarter, the Tritons got the equalizer when Wes Grime connected with Tommy Martzhal over the middle for a 33-yard touchdown to tie it up at 14-12.

Ensuing drive for Pulaski as they were pinned deep in their own zone, Hendricks threw to Casey Lambert for a 93-yard touchdown.

After an interception,Pulaski got the ball back Hendricks was back attacking on the ground with a swarm of blue jerseys on him but notches his third score of the half.

Just before half, Notre Dame made it a ball game again when Glime, under pressure, threw a touchdown to will Sullivan for a 28-21 advantage for Pulaski at the break.

The comeback continued in the second half for the Tritons when Glime connected with Brandon Limoni for another touchdown, but they were still in a 35-28 hole to Pulaski.

Notre Dame had a chance to tie the game in the closing minutes but on fourth down, the Pulaski defense shut it down, and for the first time in six years, the Red Raiders pull off a win over Notre Dame.
