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.
