Football: Alonso 31, Tampa Catholic 15

TAMPA — Alonso (7-2) recovered from two straight losses with an emphatic 31-15 victory over Tampa Catholic (6-3) on Friday night.

In a game where the Ravens needed to step up, running back Brandon Holloway led the charge with 173 yards and two touchdowns on 17 carries.

"Holloway stepped up like he always does," Ravens coach Brian Emmanuel said. "It was real important for us to get a win after the last two games.

"We saw that we aren't ready to run with Plant yet, but this team is still on pace to match the school's best record ever. It feels good to get a win again."

The Crusaders (6-2) were able to stifle the Ravens' first few drives but kicker Aaron Bagli proved a valuable tool, giving Alonso the early lead on a pair of long field goals. Eventually, Holloway broke the game open with a 51-yard touchdown run in the third quarter to make it 24-7.

Quarterback Brandon Hawkins finished the game off with an 11-yard touchdown pass to sophomore Marcus Mosley in the fourth.
