SHADY HILLS — Led by quarterback R.J. Perciavalle, Bishop McLaughlin edged Shorecrest 28-21 Friday.
Two minutes into the second quarter and trailing 7-0, Bishop McLaughlin's offense started to heat up.
Perciavalle threw over the middle to Austin Meyers, who leaped over the defender and came down with the reception for first and 10 on Shorecrest's 24-yard line. On the next play Perciavalle connected with Jordan Betancourt to even the score at 7.
On their first possession of the second half, the Hurricanes (2-5) took the lead on Evan Barhonovich's 26-yard reception.
After the Chargers (2-5) went three and out, the Hurricanes drove 71 yards, finishing with Betancourt's 6-yard run that gave Bishop a 20-7 lead.
Shorecrest's defense forced a fumble in Bishop's end zone, recovered by Alex Delgado that made it 20-14.
Perciavalle answered once again for Bishop McLaughlin. After a nice return to midfield by Betancourt on the kickoff, Perciavalle hooked up with Barhonovich again, this time from 46 yards out.
Barhonovich finished with six catches for 154 yards and two touchdowns.
Perciavalle was 19-for-24 with 320 yards and three touchdowns.
Shorecrest cut the lead to seven with 10 seconds left in the third quarter when quarterback Dakota Hirsch completed a 22-yard pass to Alex Drexler, but the Chargers didn't get any closer.
