Football: Landmark Christian 62, Bishop McLaughlin 30

Bishop McLaughlin's offense came through with its best game of the season but couldn't hang with Landmark Christian in the Hurricanes' Sunshine State Athletic Conference opener.

"We gave up some long plays," first-year Bishop coach Derrick Alexander said. "We've got to do better on that."

Two long touchdown passes by Landmark turned a close game into a runaway victory.

Bishop (0-5, 0-1) got a good night from sophomore quarterback RJ Perciavalle, who rushed for two touchdowns and ran for two others. Running back Jordan Betancourt had another good game out of the backfield behind an offensive line that had one of its best games of the season.

Junior Austin Meyers added a touchdown catch and an interception for the Hurricanes.

Injuries continued to pile up for Bishop, which has lost left tackle Shane Mendoza and senior receiver Evan Barhonovich (neck).

Bishop will look to get its first win of the season next week at Vanguard.

"I think it's coming together," Alexander said. "I think the kids are confident, and they're buying in that we're going to turn around."
