Bombers defense smothers Tigers in 32-13 Cincy win

CatholicSportsNet.com's No. 8 ranked Cincinnati St. Xavier (2-1) defeated Louisville St. Xavier (2-1) at home 32-13 Friday night behind junior running back Conor Hundley’s 251 yards rushing on 22 carries. Hundley also found the end zone three times.

The (Cincinnati) St. Xavier defense was dominant. The Bombers held the Tigers to 74 total yards on 47 offensive plays.  After Louisville St. X scored twice in the third quarter, St. X answered with two Hundley touchdown runs of 53 and 65 yards.

The 13 Tiger points came from a pair of big-time defensive plays, including a fumble recovery returned 39 yards for a touchdown by Louisville St. Xaiver linebacker Devontae Beach and 57-yard interception return by CSN All-American cornerback Daylen Hall.
