Football: Shorecrest 40, Bishop McLaughlin 0

ST. PETERSBURG — Shorecrest Prep was victorious on homecoming night, beating Bishop McLaughlin 40-0.

The Hurricanes' opening kickoff went out of bounds and the Chargers started at their 35-yard line. They then produced a 65-yard drive capped by a 4-yard run by Chad Swindell.

Shorecrest then took advantage of a fumble by Bishop McLaughlin (1-5) early in the second quarter when quarterback R.J. Perciavalle missed a pitch. The Chargers recovered then went on another scoring drive, this one ending on a 7-yard pass from Travis Dugan to receiver A.J. Lanza.

Shorecrest (2-3) took a 21-0 lead into halftime after adding another touchdown late in the second quarter, as Dugan connected with receiver Aundre Fredericks on a 49-yard pass with just 14.6 seconds left.

The Chargers cruised in the second half. Midway through the third, junior quarterback Sam Grant came in for Dugan. Although he fumbled two of his first snaps, he recovered and later ran for a 4-yard touchdown.

Two backup running backs for Shorecrest also added touchdowns runs in the second half. Sophomore Aaron Stypinski had a 15-yard run in the third quarter. With three minutes left in the game, freshman Jonathan Dacres scored on a 14-yard run.

Swindell led the way for the Chargers, picking up 123 yards on 19 carries.
