INDIANAPOLIS – There was a time in the second quarter of Friday’s catholic school showdown at Lawrence North where the result was in doubt.

Alex Kimack took care of that in the final 30 minutes of the game.

The Chatard senior running back scored four touchdowns from the second quarter on to help erase a seven-point Ritter first half lead and give his Trojans a 41-14 victory Friday on a soggy evening at Bell Stadium.

Kimack’s efforts help Chatard get past a painful 37-35 loss to rival Cathedral a week ago and push their record back over .500 to 3-2.

Ritter looked like they might change that when a second quarter touchdown gave them a 14-7 lead over the Trojans. But Kimack started to heat up after that, finishing up a Chatard drive with a three-yard touchdown to tie the game back up. The running back had a couple of big carries on the next Trojans’ drive which finished with a Sam Gleaves 37-yard touchdown pass to Brian Ball to make it 28-14 at the half.

Kimack then went to work in the second half. He pushed aside a pair of ball carriers early in the quarter on his way to a 26-yard touchdown to push the Chatard advantage to 14. Kimack then added a pair of six-yard touchdown runs in the third and fourth quarters to put the game out of reach and turn a close contest into a rout.

Chatard heads out of state for their next game against Cincinnati Elder next Friday at 7 P.M. while Ritter (3-2) hits the road to face Triton Central.
