For Bishop McGuinness, beating Deer Creek was as simple as letting quarterback Jacob Lewis carry the ball. The senior quarterback led the Irish to a 56-21 win over the Antlers at Deer Creek Friday night.
Lewis made his mark early. He scored on runs of 67 and 70 yards in the first quarter. Later in the first half he scored on runs of two, 37 and 66 yards en route to a 384 yard night on 26 carries.
“It was all on the offensive line,” Lewis said. “They played so well. You can't ask for more than what they did tonight. They played out of their minds. All I had to do was run.”
Lewis had a feeling it would be a good night when he scored his first touchdown on a long run through the heart of the Deer Creek defense.
“We were getting it done on both sides of the ball,” Lewis said. “I think we were able to get some big runs early and that fired us up to keep going. We're coming together at the right time.”
Lewis added a 48-yard touchdown pass to Carl West in the third quarter to go along with three more touchdown runs.
