Bishop McLaughlin 41, Winter Haven All Saints' 10

WINTER HAVEN — Bishop McLaughlin piled up more than 400 yards of offense to run past All Saints' Academy.

Giovanni Perone ran for 167 yards and three touchdowns to lead the Hurricanes. Quarterback Mitch Ritter led a balanced offense that finished with 435 total yards and never let All Saints' get close.

Running a flexbone offense, Ritter passed for 80 yards and a touchdown and rushed for 78 yards. The team had 355 yards on the ground.

Bishop McLaughlin jumped on the Saints early, scoring 27 in the first quarter. Aided by three onside kicks, two of which were recovered and led to touchdowns, the Hurricanes went into halftime with a 34-3 lead.

Of the onside kicks recovered, the second bounced off an All Saints' player and was recovered by a Hurricane, and the third died between two Saints before it was recovered by the kicking team.

The Saints struck back to start the second half. Kenny Farrington ran the first play from scrimmage 59 yards for a score. Farrington finished with 122 yards on 13 carries.

The Hurricanes intercepted All Saints' Ryan Brocker deep in Bishop McLaughlin territory and snuffed out another drive on downs.
