Football: Cambridge 54, Bishop McLaughlin 25

Bishop McLaughlin gave up a punt return for a touchdown and allowed several long runs and passes in a 54-25 loss Friday night at Cambridge.

"We had some issues tackling," Hurricanes coach Derrick Alexander said. "That was something that carried on from last week."

Quarterback RJ Perciavalle threw for two touchdowns — including one to senior receiver Evan Barhonovich — and ran for another in the loss.

Cambridge played well on special teams, too, blocking a Bishop extra point. The Hurricanes forced several fumbles but gave up too much on defense to recover.

"Unfortunately we didn't get a victory," Alexander said, "but I can see this team, we've got a lot of heart."

Bishop also suffered a blow when senior running back/safety Christian Nummy left with a foot injury. His playing status for the rest of the season is unknown.
