Catholic Red Football: O'Hara shuts out Roman

Corey Brown was the bright offensive star in a defensive struggle as Cardinal O’Hara blanked visiting Roman Catholic, 13-0, Sunday in a Catholic League Red Division football game.

Brown, a 6-foot-1, 185-pound senior, capped O’Hara’s 15-play, 76-yard drive on its first possession with a 4-yard touchdown run.

Brown collected 76 rushing yards and 72 receiving yards from quarterback Ryan Laughlin (105 passing yards).

Dan O’Hara finished the scoring with a short third-quarter TD run.

Roman (2-4 overall, 1-1 division) managed just 28 yards rushing on 18 carries, and gained 43 yards in the air against a Lions (6-0, 2-0) defense that posted its second straight shutout.
