HAMMOND | Times No. 5 Bishop Noll struck early and often Tuesday night, and there was simply nothing Lowell could do to muster a comeback.

The Warriors scored four first-half goals and added three in the second half to rout the Red Devils 7-0.

“It wasn’t bad,” Bishop Noll coach Armando Garza said of his offense.

“We’re trying to get these guys to use the whole field with good ball movement. We’ve got guys with a lot of speed.”

The Warriors (2-0) wasted no time starting their offensive attack, as Aaron Garza connected off a feed from Robbie Lorenz to take a 1-0 lead with 34:36 left in the first half.

Later in the half, Lorenz took two consecutive feeds from Aaron Garza in a span of about two minutes, finding the net on both to give the Warriors a 3-0 lead.

“He’s a senior now. It’s time for him to step up,” Armando Garza said.

“We’ve had a lot of talented guys come around to help build him up. I told him, 'You’re a senior now. It’s time for you to come through.'"

Lorenz agreed with his coach’s assessment.

“I try to lead as much as I can during practice,” Lorenz said. “I try to push everyone as much as I can.”

Gonzalo Romo would score Bishop Noll’s fourth goal with 3:07 remaining before the break, effectively putting the game away before the second half began.

Lowell mustered two first-half shots. The first was corralled by Noll goalkeeper Mitch Payonk and the second sailed harmlessly over the crossbar.

Garza was satisfied with the effort his defense put forth all game long. The Red Devils’ offensive opportunities were limited. However, he knows bigger games are on the horizon.

“It’s early season. We’re getting these guys comfortable,” Armando Garza said. “I think our big one will be this Saturday (hosting Munster).”

Cory Soto, Justin Golich and Ryan Cloghessy scored Noll’s second-half goals.
