Bishop Chatard Runningback Pete Hartley rushed for 152 yards on 27 carries. Joe Fagan scored a touchdown on a 10-yard pass from Sam Neighbors. Rob Dury wrapped up the scoring for the Trojans by intercepting a Connor Rice pass and running 30 yards to the end zone.

On Friday, Irish take on Fort Wayne Dwenger in a homecoming game set for 7:30 p.m. Friday at University of Indianapolis. The Trojans will be on the road playing at Marian University against the Cardinal Ritter Raiders Friday at 7 p.m.

Hunt threw his two touchdowns to receiving favorite Anthony Warrum, who caught three passes for 52 yards. On Friday, Heritage Christian travels to Shenandoah for a 7 p.m. game while Guerin Catholic travels to Indianapolis Tech for a 7 p.m. Friday game as well.
