If Bishop Dunne is the best team TAPPS has to offer — as the statewide rankings indicate — the Bishop Lynch Friars aren't far behind.

That much was made clear Friday as the Friars (2-2, 0-1) fell just short against the top-ranked Bishop Dunne Falcons (3-1, 1-0) by a 28-21 margin at Bishop Dunne High School.

For the second straight week, the Friar defense forced five turnovers and this time, they needed each one to put away Kaufman for a 28-14 win at Roffino Stadium in the final non-district game of the season.

Bishop Lynch (2-1) had a hard time getting its offense going with just 235 yards, but offset that number with a pair of defensive scores to get past the visiting Lions (1-2).

Jeremy Irving picked off two passes, the first of which came near the end of the first half and gave the Friars a two-score lead at the break.

Kaufman had a chance to go down and tie the game with just a couple of minutes left, but again the defense stepped up in the biggest way as Daniel Packard took an interception 25 yards to the house, helping the Friars go into the bye week on a two-game win streak.

Jermaine Mask led the team with 79 rushing yards and got the Friars on the board first with a three-yard run. The Lions hit one of their two big plays to tie the game with a 72-yard pass in the second quarter.

Jaire Moore scored from nine yards to regain the lead and Irving's return gave the Friars a buffer heading into the break.

In the third, Kaufman hit its second big play, scoring on a 79-yard pass. But the Lions weren't able to strike gold a third time. Instead, Packard iced the game with his touchdown return.

Packard had 12 tackles and forced a fumble in addition to his interception. Irving was in on 10 tackles and also recovered a fumble to go with his two interceptions. Landry Kershaw forced a fumble and was in on 20 tackles.

The Friars will have two weeks to prepare for their district opener on Sept. 23 at Earl Hayes Stadium, on the Bishop Dunne campus.

A total of 11 former soccer standouts from Bishop Lynch are on collegiate rosters for the 2016 season, with several playing significant roles for their squads.

The former Lady Friars come from four different graduating classes at BL, from 2013-2016, with five from the Class of 2015 and three from 2016.

Here's a breakdown of how the former Lady Friars are doing so far in 2016:


• Alisa Velasquez ('13) — Texas Woman's University

The senior forward and midfielder is the only Class of 2013 alum currently on a collegiate roster and has seen action in all four games for the 4-0 Pioneers.


• Allison Ganter ('14) — Texas Christian University

The junior forward has helped the Frogs to their best start in school history (6-0-1) with four goals in two assists this season. Allison was a 2015 1st Team All-Academic selection by the Big 12 Conference and notched a hat trick on Sept. 4 in a 7-0 TCU win over Texas Southern.


• Hassie Wortham ('14) — Austin College

Hassie, a junior forward and midfielder, is in her third season for the Roos. Austin College is off to a 1-3 start this season.


• Eva Gonzalez ('15) — Seton Hall University

Now a sophomore midfielder for the Pirates, Eva was a Big East All-Freshman Team selection last year. This season she received a redshirt in order to train with the Mexico National Team in preparation for the Women's World Cup.


• Jamie Jeffrey ('15) — University of Tulsa

Redshirted in her freshman year, Jamie has seen action in three games this season for the 3-4-1 Hurricane. Jamie is a forward and midfielder for Tulsa.


• Natalie McDonough ('15) — University of Missouri

The former two-time District MVP at BL saw action in 12 games as a freshman for Mizzou, and has played in two games this season for the 5-2 Tigers.


• Erin Scott ('15) — Creighton University

This season, Erin is 1-1-1 in goal for the Bluejays, who are 4-1-2 this season. As a freshman, Erin started all 20 matches with six shutouts and made 108 saves, the second-most in school history.


• Kaycie Tillman ('15) — Florida State University

Now a sophomore midfielder for the #1 team in the nation, Kaycie was chosen for the ACC All-Freshman Team in 2015, starting all 25 games and registering eight assists and four goals. This season, she has a goal and two assists for the 5-1 Seminoles.


• Katelyn Curtis ('16) — Rhodes College

Just three games into her freshman year, Katelyn has already made her presence felt for the 1-2 Lynx, scoring two goals in a 6-0 win on Sept. 9 and playing 63 minutes as a starter in the season opener.


• Mica MacKay ('16) — Jacksonville University

The freshman goalkeeper has seen action in three games for the 2-5 Dolphins, making five saves during that span.


• Atu Mshana ('16) — University of Texas

Last year's District MVP was a top scorer for BL but has shifted to defense for the 4-3 Longhorns. Atu has started all seven games and had an assist in their latest contest.

An explosive rushing attack paired with a suffocating defense led Bishop Lynch to a 52-13 rout of the Irving Tigers on Friday at Irving Schools Stadium.

The Friars (1-1) posted a 35-7 halftime lead in a game that was never close once it began. Jaire Moore rushed for 175 yards and three touchdowns, including a 90-yard run in the third quarter that put the proverbial bow on BL's first win under head coach Chuck Faucette.
The defense forced four turnovers, as sophomore Grayson Murphy picked off a pass and recovered a fumble, returning it 20 yards for a score just before halftime. Keion McGee intercepted two Irving passes.

Landry Kershaw rang up 17 tackles and forced a fumble, Daniel Packard had 17 tackles and a sack, Davis Peck was in on 14 stops and Jacob Lewis had a hand in 13 tackles. Carson Garrett made all seven PATs and a 30-yard field goal, his first at the varsity level. 

Jermaine Mask rushed for 94 yards, including the game's opening score, an 8-yard run to put the Friars in front after their opening possession. Moore added a 5-yard run on the next series to double the lead at 14-0.

Irving appeared to be making a game of it, slicing the BL lead in half on James Miles' 23-yard run, but the Friars ended the half with 21 straight points — a 15-yard run by Moore, a 39-yard TD pass from Jagger LaRoe to Jarek Broussard and Murphy's scoop and score.

Miles scored again for Irving early in the third period, but Moore sprinted past the Tiger defense for a 90-yard score on his final carry to put it out of reach. In the fourth, Garrett booted the field goal and sophomore Jack Taylor scored his first varsity touchdown on a 10-yard run.

Bishop Lynch outgained Irving 450-170 and didn't commit a turnover one week after losing four against Texas High.

The Friars will return home Friday and host Kaufman for their final non-district contest. Kickoff is at 7:30 p.m.

District play couldn't have started any better for Bishop Lynch, which swept three matches at John Paul II and another against Williams without dropping a set Tuesday.

The Friars will look to bounce back in Irving on Friday after opening the season with a 44-21 home loss to Texas High at Roffino Stadium.

The Tigers (1-0) amassed 588 yards of offense, with most of their damage being done in the middle two periods, during which Texas High scored 37 points.

The Friars (0-1) displayed an impressive ground game (243 yards) which helped the team put together 377 offensive yards, but were unable to put the lid on the Texas High passing game. Tiger quarterback Cade Pearson passed for 439 yards and five touchdowns.

Jaire Moore paced the Bishop Lynch attack with 180 yards on the ground, Jarek Broussard scored a pair of touchdowns and Jermaine Mask found the end zone as well.

After a scoreless first period, Texas High scored 17 straight in the first half of the second quarter to take a 17-0 lead. Broussard dazzled the crowd for BL's first points of the season, cutting through and around the Tiger defense on a 10-yard scoring run. Carson Garrett made the first of three PATs and cut the deficit to 17-7.

Texas High would pad its lead before the break and took a 23-7 lead into halftime.

The Friars, however, came out swinging in the second half, capping off a drive with Mask's 22-yard TD run to make it 23-14. The Tigers would answer with two scores of their own and led 37-14 after three frames.

Jagger LaRoe connected with Broussard in the fourth on a 32-yard touchdown pass, bringing the Friars within 37-21, then had a chance to make it a one-possession game, driving the ball down inside the Texas High 10-yard line. But, on 4th and goal, LaRoe was sacked, ending the Friars final threat.

Bishop Lynch will take its show on the road Friday, looking to pull its record even against the Irving Tigers (0-1). The teams will meet at Irving Schools Stadium with kickoff scheduled for 7:30 p.m.

The second of two scrimmages for the Bishop Lynch football team was most impressive Friday evening, despite some changes in the schedule due to weather.

All three BL teams were scheduled to scrimmage Kimball at Sprague Stadium, but heavy rain flooded the area and led to the cancellation of the subvarsity portion.

Once the weather cleared up, the varsity team took the field just after 7 p.m. to take on the Knights.

Kimball's offense was unable to get anything going to start the scrimmage, as junior defensive back Benn Cole stopped a series with an interception near midfield.

The Friars, however, hit paydirt on their opening series, using a number of dazzling plays from junior Jarek Broussard to set up senior Jaire Moore for a short touchdown run.

BL's second defensive unit shut down Kimball once again and the second offense moved the ball well behind some big runs by Jack Taylor, but could not add any points.

Kimball's only big play of the evening produced the Knights' only points as the hosts converted a short pass into a long run that ended in the end zone.

The Friars would respond very quickly, with Broussard running for 40 yards on the first play of the series. Moore gashed the Kimball defense for a 24-yard TD just moments later.

All in all, it was an impressive showing for the Friars, who will shift their focus now to Texarkana Texas High, which will come to Roffino Stadium on Friday to open the 2016 season. Kickoff is scheduled for 7:30 p.m.
