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.
