St. Vincent St. Marys capped off a perfect 10-0 record on Thursday with yet another runaway victory, this time a 33 point victory over Ursuline. Parris Campbell saw a ton of action and didn't disappoint. From a rushign standpoint, Campbell toted the rock 12 times for 130 yards and two touchdowns. The big highlight when Campbell started the second half by scampering 80 yards for a score.
