Greg Galligan completed 14 of 24 passes for 215 yards and four touchdowns to lead No. 1 St. Anthony's (10-1) to a 35-14 victory over No. 4 Stepinac Saturday in the CHSFL Class AAA semifinals.

Galligan connected with Michael Russo on a 46-yard post-pattern touchdown right before halftime, giving St. Anthony's (10-1) a 28-0 lead.

"Galligan really had a great season," coach Rich Reichert said. "He's been throwing the ball really well all year. We went to the spread offense and it fits him very well."

Naim Jones caught six passes for 89 yards and two touchdowns.

"He was the difference in the game," Reichert said. "He's our outside threat."

Running back Jordan Gowins ran for 89 yards and one touchdown.

"He's only a junior and I think he's going to be recruited by everybody in the country."

Defensive end Joseph Percival led the defense with three sacks and five tackles.

"He played great today because he kept the opposing team's quarterback in check," Reichert said.

St. Anthony's will play No. 2 Chaminade at Mitchel Athletic Complex on Saturday.

"It's Chaminade and we lost to them last year," Reichert said. "The seniors definitely want to get it right this year."

Stepinac finished 7-4.
