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.

Parker County Sheriff Larry Fowler is warning the public of impersonators attempting to scare residents into a scam for profit.
Fowler has been made aware of several incidents where suspects have placed phone calls to targeted citizens stating they are county representatives.
The caller informs the victim they have failed to appear for jury duty, resulting in a monetary fine. The suspects then threaten the victim with the issuance of an arrest warrant if the victim refuses to pay the fine.
The caller then instructs the victim to pay the alleged fine by using a debit or credit card, over the phone.
The victims are requested to provide their debit or credit card number along with the three-digit security code located on the back of the card. The suspects end the call by directing the victim to contact the county court house or county clerk in order to remove the victim’s alleged warrant in light of their “payment.”
Fowler said county officials do not advise residents of failure to appear for jury duty or warrant notifications by phone.
“It’s disheartening to see anyone scammed out of their hard-earned money,” Fowler said. “These suspects carry out devious actions and their scheme is calculated. Parker County officials certainly do not contact citizens seeking payments for fines over the phone.”
The Parker County Sheriff’s Office sends failure to appear notices only by the United States Postal Service mail system.
Fowler encourages residents to contact the Sheriff’s Office to report any suspicious calls from individuals soliciting money.
The 2014-2015 Aledo Bearcat football season opened at the McLane Stadium in Waco, TX. tonight .It was a matchup of the last 2 Class 4A state champions. The Aledo Bearcats are the defending champions and the Cedar Park Timberwolves won their state championship in 2012.
The first quarter was not your typical performance that we have come to know from the Bearcats.
Cedar Park was not intimidated at all by the Aledo mystique and out played the Bearcats on both sides of the ball.
Cedar Park scored the first points of the game with an 18 yard field goal on their second possession of the game. That was the first time in 16 games Aledo was behind in a game. Cedar Park scored again on a 61 yard pass to make the score 10-0 after one.
Coach Wood and his staff made some adjustments and Aledo held Cedar Park scoreless in the second. Aledo scored on a 27 yard pass from Bishop to Newsome and trailed 10-7 at halftime.
Cedar Park scored early in the 3rd with a 66 yard touchdown run but Aledo answered with a 34 yard touchdown pass from Bishop to Newsome. The scored stayed Cedar Park 17 and Aledo 14 all the way to the 1:09 mark of the 4th when Bishop found a wide open Jess Anders on a 34 yard touchdown pass.
Aledo put the clamps on defense and Cedar Park’s last pass of the game went out of the back of the end zone with no time left.
It was an incredible way for Coach Wood to debut as the Bearcat head coach.
Way to go Bearcats!!
