Bishop McLaughlin rallied from a 20-point deficit Friday to rattle off 38 consecutive points and earn its first victory of the year, 38-20 over Kissimmee Life Academy.
"Any kind of way we can get it done," Hurricanes coach Derrick Alexander said.
Life Academy scored on its first play from scrimmage, took advantage of a Bishop (1-2) fumble at the 1 and scored on another long touchdown before the Hurricanes finally got going.
"I told them we needed to be some difference-makers," Alexander said.
The biggest one was Austin Meyers. The standout senior returned the second-half kickoff 70 yards to set up one of his four rushing touchdowns.
RJ Perciavalle added a touchdown pass on a ball Meyers deflected to Alex Stafford. Bishop's defense also improved with a second-half shutout.
"From that point on, we slammed the door on them," Alexander said.
