Football: Bishop McLaughlin 66, Hernando Christian 0

Bishop McLaughlin coach Matt Nardo said his Hurricanes played their cleanest game of the season in a 66-0 shutout victory at Hernando Christian.

The Hurricanes (4-1) didn't turn the ball over once, had few penalties and even fewer missed assignments in the blowout win.

"My hope was that when we walked off the field that we would have played a very clean, very crisp football game," Nardo said. "We did that both offensively and defensively. I was real pleased with how we played."

Quarterback Mitch Ritter led the Hurricanes' offensive onslaught. Ritter had two rushing touchdowns, threw for another score and recovered a fumble that he returned for a fourth touchdown.

Hurricanes fullback Giovanni Perone scored twice on the ground while running back Jordan Betancourt rushed for one touchdown and caught another touchdown pass.

Christian Nummy, Isaac Meyers and Jacob Rios each had a rushing touchdown for Bishop McLaughlin, which led 53-0 at halftime.

The entire second half was played with a running clock.

Hernando Christian (0-4) lost its second straight game by a 66-0 score.

  1. Rays journal: Offense shows signs of waking up in win over Blue Jays (w/video)

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG — The drought was so severe that it's still probably too soon to say that the Rays are out of it, but they did score six runs Tuesday in a 6-5 win over the Blue Jays.

  2. Marc Topkin's takeaways from Tuesday's Rays-Blue Jays game

    C Wilson Ramos, coming off major right knee surgery, understandably often takes it easy running the bases, though it's not always a good look. But he hustled when he needed to Tuesday and got the Rays a run by beating out a two-out infield single.

  3. Rays are full of ideas they'd like to share when commissioner visits

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG — Commissioner Rob Manfred is coming to the Trop today. Hmm. Rays principal owner Stuart Sternberg will be there to greet him. Hmmmm. And they have a scheduled joint media session. Hmmmmmmmmm.

    Commissioner Rob Manfred isn’t expected to say anything definitive about the Rays’ stadium situation when he visits the team today.

  5. 'Hard Knocks' star Riley Bullough still not a lock for Bucs


    TAMPA — Bucs undrafted rookie LB Riley Bullough is perhaps the surprise star of HBO's Hard Knocks and has been productive in two preseason games, but Bucs coach Dirk Koetter said Tuesday that he's caught in a numbers game competing for a backup spot on the Tampa Bay roster.

    Riley Bullough has made a good impression on Hard Knocks and on coach Dirk Koetter, but he isn’t guaranteed a job.
