INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Fort Wayne Bishop Luers won its fourth consecutive 2A football championship with a 40-28 victory over Indianapolis Cardinal Ritter.

Bishop Luers scored 27 straight points in the second quarter as Jaylon Smith rushed for 85 yards and two touchdowns. He finished with 150 yards and three touchdowns.

Smith iced the game with a 16-yard touchdown run with 2:36 left in the game. Quarterback Quinn Cook threw for 87 yards and a touchdown.

Jake Purichia threw for 238 yards and three touchdowns for the Raiders. Jake Hagan was on the receiving end of all three scores and posted nine catches for 138 yards.

Cardinal Ritter entered the game a perfect 14-0 and had averaged 51 points per game, but Bishop Luers defense was dominant in the first half.
