OLNEY – Good Counsel senior running back Mo Ibrahim scored three touchdowns against Bishop McNamara Friday, leading the host Falcons to a 43-0 shutout victory.

Ibrahim, the Falcons’ all-time leading scorer, said his team had a challenging first quarter when neither team scored.

However, in the second quarter, Good Counsel (5-2) racked up 16 points, including nine from defensive lineman Josh Paschal.

The senior put the Falcons on the board first with a safety and later on a 28-yard touchdown reception from senior quarterback Travis Nannen.

“It picked up very slow,” Ibrahim said. “After Josh got that safety, the tone changed.”
