With 11:46 to play in the first half, freshman defensive back Trey Wells (Louisville, Ky./duPont Manual) blocked a Bearcat punt and recovered it in the endzone and Gormly added the PAT to extend the lead to 24-0.

The Saints took a 31-0 lead into halftime when sophomore wide receiver Bobby Leonard (Edgewood, Ky./Dixie Heights) caught a 20-yard touchdown pass from freshman quarterback Jensen Gebhardt (Kings Mills, Ohio/Kings) with 5:58 to play in the second quarter.

Thomas More extended the lead to 38-0 with 14:05 to play in the third quarter when Rauch scored on a two-yard run and Gormly added the PAT.

Saint Vincent's Morgan Porter closed out the scoring in the game when he made a 36-yard field with 5:42 for the final score of 38-3.

Rauch led the Saints' offense as he had 18 carries for 92 yards and three touchdowns, while Gebhardt was 15-of-28 passing for 122 yards and one touchdown and had seven carries for nine yards.  Senior wide receiver Tony Bell (Cincinnati, Ohio/Northwest) led the Saints' receivers with six catches for 53 yards and Leonard had two catches for 37 yards and one touchdown.  Freshman running back Scootie Middleton (New Albany, Ind./New Albany) was second on the team in rushing with 12 carries for 59 yards.
