SHADY HILLS — Bishop McLaughlin's Homecoming wasn't much of a celebration as Holy Trinity Episcopal romped 61-0 Friday night.
After scoring once in the first quarter, Holy Trinity really got its offense going in the second quarter. It had multiple big plays, including a 60-yard pass from quarterback Daniel Welch to wide receiver Willie Gibson, a 45-yard run by Josh Harden, and another 21-yard touchdown by Harden as the Tigers led 27-0 at the half.
In the second half, the Tigers continued to get a lot of mileage out of their ground game.
An impressive drive started the third quarter, as the Tigers got one first down after another from running back Nick Hammer. He eventually scored on a 13-yard run. After they established a 34-point lead, the Tigers put in their backup running back, who continued to put together scoring drives.
Holy Trinity finished with 371 rushing yards and 521 yards of total offense.
Bishop McLaughlin (4-4) was destroyed by turnovers. Almost every time the Hurricanes seemed to be putting together a scoring drive, they would fumble.
