Bishop McGuinness has piled up the points and the victories so far this football season.
McGuinness added a district win, 52-0 over El Reno on Friday, at Clement Pribil Stadium. McGuinness moved to 4-0 overall and 1-0 in District 5A-2.
McGuinness has outscored opponents 160-30 along the way — an average score of 40-8. McGuinness racked up 631 yards and 23 first downs while holding El Reno (1-3, 0-1) to 129 yards and seven first downs.
“It was a great offensive output,” McGuinness coach Justin Jones said. “We did it a variety of ways running and passing. We had great balance. I'm proud of the offensive guys, the defensive guys, the special teams — we did it all three phases.”
McGuinness threw for 376 yards; starting quarterback Jacob Lewis connected on 18 of his 29 attempts for 324 yards and three scores. The 6-foot-3, 198-pound junior added 172 yards rushing, all in the first half on eight tries. Cody Chancellor caught six passes from Lewis for 197 yards.
“We've worked together extra after practice,” Lewis said of he and Chancellor. “He has the best hands in 5A. He's explosive. He ran a 4.5 40 in summer workouts.”
Jones said: “Cody is a warrior. He is in my opinion one of the best receivers in our class. He is a workhorse.”
Lewis has fully recovered from a leg injury he suffered in the second game, which kept him out of most of McGuinness' 34-10 triumph over Tulsa Bishop Kelley.
“Jake is an explosive player,” Jones said. “He really did a great job tonight. He was a true dual-threat quarterback.”
By halftime Friday night, the Fighting Irish had 496 total yards and 18 first downs to El Reno's 53 and three. Lewis had already totaled 245 yards passing.
McGuinness lit up the scoreboard on the first play from scrimmage. Chancellor turned a short catch into a 78-yard touchdown 19 seconds into the game.
Lewis gave the Irish a 14-0 lead on an 18-yard touchdown run toward the end of the first quarter. He added a 3-yard TD plunge to put McGuinness ahead 21-0 with 10 minutes left in the first half.
Braden Roy's 64-yard touchdown run, Chancellor's 33-yard TD catch and Lewis' 55-yard scoring run helped give McGuinness a 42-0 lead by halftime.
