No. 1 Mater Dei (California) picks up impressive road shutout against No. 10 Bishop Gorman (Nevada)

Mater Dei Monarchs

If top-ranked Mater Dei (California) was upset about having to forfeit last week’s victory because of an ineligible player, the Monarchs did show it against No. 10 Bishop Gorman (0-1) in Las Vegas Friday night. In the 42-0 victory, Mater Dei (2-0) gave the defending 9-time Nevada state champs something they haven’t felt in a long while…a mercy rule loss with a running clock after the Monarchs went up 35-0. It was the first time the Gaels had been shutout in twelve years.
