Marshall Nichols led the Bears (1-3) on a five-play, 44-yard drive that he capped with a 3-yard touchdown run. Chris Carrillo was true on the first of his six point-after kicks.

LCA (1-3) fumbled the ensuing kickoff. Holy Innocents’ then launched a 46-yard drive including Drew Bomar’s 13-yard touchdown run around the left end.

Holy Innocents’ reached the end zone twice in the second quarter, on TyQuann Alexander’s 9-yard run and a 22-yard pass from Nichols to Zach Jackson.

Nichols had his second touchdown of the night midway through the third quarter.

The Lions answered with a 60-yard pass to Hunter Hampton from Brent Taylor for a touchdown. Holy Innocents’ blocked the point-after.

Holy Innocents’ tacked on a final score on a 9-yard touchdown run by Wyatt Lybrook. The clock ran through fourth quarter.
