Bishop threw for three touchdowns.

Aledo senior quarterback Luke Bishop threw for three touchdowns and added a two-point conversion run to lead the Class 5A No. 4 Bearcats to a convincing 49-0 victory over Monterrey (Mexico) Tech Friday night at Bearcat Stadium.

The win raises the Bearcats record to 2-1. Aledo will enjoy an open date next week and open District 8-5A play on Friday, Sept. 26 at home against Joshua, which is also Homecoming Night.

"It feels good to get our first win at home," Bearcats head coach Steve Wood said. "I thought we ran our offense well, and anytime you get a shutout on defense you have to be pleased."

The Bearcats scored on their first drive and led 21-0 after the first quarter. Aledo's first touchdown came on a 60-yared touchdown pass from Bishop to senior receiver Toby Gray, who broke two tackles on his way to the end zone. The PAT kick was wide as AHS led 6-0.

The Bearcats found the end zone again on their second drive. Running back Isaiah Mallory capped an eight-play, 83-yard drive with a two-yard TD run off left tackle. Bishop ran in the two-point conversion, diving into the end zone to give the hosts a 14-0 advantage.

Linebacker Ryan Heiss intercepted a Tech pass to set up the next Aledo score.

California Bishop Amat runs past Bearcats, 42-7

Aledo running back Isaiah Mallory (26) splits a pair of defenders during the Bearcats 42-7 loss to Bishop Amat of La Puente, Calif. Friday night at Bearcats Stadium. Mallory, who rushed for 161 yards on 29 carries, scored Aledo's lone touchdown.

Bishop Amat from La Puente, Calif. jumped out to a 21-0 lead by scoring three different ways - with a rushing touchdown, a blocked punt returned for a TD and by reaching the end zone through the air - en route to a 42-7 win over the Class 5A No. 1 Aledo Bearcats Friday night at Bearcat Stadium.
The loss evens the Bearcats record at 1-1. The Bearcats will play next at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 12 at home against Monterrey (Mexico) Tech.
After racing out to a three-touchdown lead, Amat closed the first-half scoring on a one-yard plunge up the middle by running back Anthony Camargo for his second TD and a 28-0 lead.
Amat added two more scores in the second half, the first on a 10-yard pass from quarterback Damian Garcia to receiver Brandon Morales, and the second for a 42-0 lead on a 12-yard pass from Garcia to Brandon Arconado.
The Bearcats got on the board in the fourth quarter. The big play in the drive was a 78-yard keeper down the right sideline by quarterback Luke Bishop, which brought the ball to the Amat 11.
Two plays later, running back Isaiah Mallory scored on a one-yard run off right tackle, and Carson White booted the extra point to cut the Amat lead to 42-7.
