LOUISVILLE – Louisville athletes had hoped to slow down a strong Archbishop Bergan offense on the LHS field Friday night.
The Knights kept the gears of their scoring machine moving with a major effort against the Lions.
Archbishop Bergan collected 427 yards of offense in a 42-0 triumph. The Knights (5-0) copied the scoring results of their four previous games this season. The team had posted 16, 31, 23 and 65 points earlier in the year.
ABHS went ahead of Louisville (1-4) with three touchdowns in the first quarter. Nolan Thomsen and Ethan Villwok capped the team’s first two drives with short runs, and a 10-yard touchdown scamper by Chris Pinales made it 21-0.
The Knights created a 28-0 halftime lead when Jake Ridder found Shea Gossett on a 91-yard touchdown play in the second quarter. A three-yard run from Ridder in the third quarter and 50-yard dash from Villwok in the fourth period created the final margin.
Louisville finished the game with 113 total yards. The team gained seven first downs and went 3-of-12 on third-down conversions. LHS finished 1-of-4 on fourth-down plays.
