The Lafayette Middle School football program had a successful evening Tuesday, sweeping the visiting Senatobia Warriors. The seventh-grade (2-3 overall, 1-0 Tri-Lakes Conference) claimed a 16-0 shutout victory, while the eighth-grade (3-2, 1-0) knocked off the Warriors 36-20.
The seventh-grade ‘Dores got on the scoreboard in the first quarter courtesy of a 70-yard run by William Woodall and a successful two-point conversion by Nick Onsby. LMS capped the scoring late in the second quarter when Woodall broke into the end zone from 5 yards out. Collin Crawford’s pass to Onsby on the two-point conversion was on the mark.
“The defense played well and I wanted to commend Devin Satterwhite,” Lafayette Middle School coach Glenn Williams said. “He had an interception that sealed the game for us.”
In the night cap, Lafayette gained a 14-8 advantage after the first quarter thanks to a 25-yard run by Atarius Owens, a 40-yard run by Kyler Campbell and a successful two-point conversion run by Owens.
Lafayette kept its distance and took a 22-14 lead into the half thanks to a 48-yard touchdown run by Owens at the 6:01 mark of the second quarter. Owens also converted the two-point attempt.
In the third quarter, Tyler Williams found pay dirt from two yards out and in the third quarter Owens scored on a 5-yard run to conclude the evening’s scoring.
“Overall, offensively we played pretty well and the offensive line did a good job of blocking,” Williams said. (October 3, 2012, Page 6)
