Football: Vero Beach St. Edward's 42, Bishop McLaughlin 12

SPRING HILL — Vero Beach St. Edward's (7-0) remained undefeated, spoiling Bishop McLaughlin's homecoming 42-12 Friday night.

Bishop McLaughlin (4-2) struck first, as junior Jordan Betancourt returned the opening kickoff 95 yards to give the Hurricanes a 6-0 lead.

St. Edward's answered right back. On the first play from scrimmage, running back Cortez Brown ran up the left side for 58 yards. He finished the drive two plays later, running it in from 1 yard out to give St. Edward's a 7-6 lead that it never relinquished.

Brown finished the game with 147 yards rushing and three touchdowns.

Trailing 21-6, Bishop McLaughlin's last score came after junior Christian Nummy took one on the outside for a 20-yard rushing touchdown before the half.

Bishop had no answer for the St. Edward's running attack in the second half, as Brown scored two more times, and J.D McGee added a touchdown.

    The goal posts still seem to be moving for Roberto Aguayo.
