Football: Bishop McLaughlin 60, Cornerstone Charter 6

SHADY HILLS — Bishop McLaughlin entered Friday night's game coming off three straight road wins and looking to make it four in a row at home.

And that's just what the Hurricanes did, beating Cornerstone Charter 60-6.

"I think the kids have finally found their stride. They've played hard every single game," Bishop McLaughlin coach Derrick Alexander said.

The first points of the game came on a 3-yard run from senior receiver Austin Meyers, which was set up nicely by a punt return to the 3.

The Hurricanes defense controlled the first half. Defensive linemen Zac Howley and Zach Lockhart picked up fumbles and took them to the end zone. The defense also forced two safeties and an interception from senior corner Diego Heinzerling, who was in on multiple tackles and also had a forced fumble.

The Hurricanes offense performed as well, with a 58-yard touchdown run from senior Sammy Sullivan and a 22-yard run from quarterback RJ Perciavalle.

Cornerstone Charter was plagued by turnovers and couldn't seem to hold onto the ball. Whether it was bobbled snaps or fumbles, the team had a hard time on offense.

Bishop McLaughlin finished with 250 rushing yards.

  1. USF defense feeds on Temple offense to take NCAA interceptions lead


    TAMPA — Backed up in his end zone, Temple quarterback Logan Marchi scrambled, trying to elude a USF defensive end coming straight for him. Until then, Marchi hadn't had much luck hitting his receivers.

    No. 21 USF ran its record to 4-0 Thursday night with some payback against Temple, a 43-7 trouncing, no contest, as if anyone cares, at least judging by the paltry crowd at Raymond James Stadium. Where was everybody?

  4. Former Ray Tim Beckham's over being traded, or is he?

    The Heater

    BALTIMORE — As the Rays reunited Thursday with Tim Beckham for the first time since he was dealt July 31 to Baltimore, it became very clear that not everything in assessing the trade is as it appears.

    Tim Beckham, here in action Monday against the Red Sox, has hit .310, with 10 homers and 26 RBIs since going to the Orioles.

    The Rays still talk about having a shot to make the playoffs. But recognizing and correcting mistakes will help them next year, such as Mallex Smith trying to steal third in the first. "Those are the little things we've got to find how to eliminate real quick," manager Kevin Cash said.
