FORT WORTH – From the first whistle to the last, Bishop Lynch (9-0, 6-0) dominated Nolan Catholic for a 31-3 road win at Doskocil Stadium that clinched the outright district title for the Friars.

Jarek Broussard scored three touchdowns, Jacob Lewis (112) and Jordan Hudson (121) each went over 100 yards rushing and Sam Vrana tossed a pair of touchdown passes.

The defense suffocated the Vikings (4-5, 3-3) all night, allowing just 126 total yards and less than one yard per carry. Warren Walls led another dominant defensive performance with six tackles, five tackles for loss and 3.5 sacks, giving the junior 13.5 sacks for the season.

Jeremy Harris and Jayden Evans intercepted Nolan passes and the defense totaled 15 tackles for loss. Grayson Murphy (12), Gabriel Murphy (10) and Davis Peck (9) led the team in tackles.

Carson Garrett connected on a 30-yard field goal, botted a pair of kickoffs through the end zone and pinned the Vikings at their own 1-yard line twice with a pair of 48-yard punts.

The Friars host Parish Episcopal (4-5, 2-4) on Friday for Senior Night, with a chance to become the first Bishop Lynch team to ever complete a 10-0 regular season.

Kickoff from Roffino Stadium is set for 7 pm. The game can be streamed live at http://bit.ly/BLathletics.
