It was the Kylan Duhe show as he rolled up seven touchdowns for West St. John as the Rams beat down on Houma Christian in a 61-0 blowout in the District 8-1A opener Friday night in Houma.
“He is unstoppable right now,” Rams coach Brandon Walters said of his running back’s 220-yard performance.
Walters also credited strong blocking by his offensive line and D’Andre Gaudia’s consistent quarterback play for his team’s performance.
“D’Andre is making big plays for us,” Walters said.
“We really got back to playing in good form tonight,” he added.
The scores started early and continued late for the Rams. At the 10:13 mark of the opening quarter, Duhe found the end zone on a 49-yard rush to give the Rams a 7-0 lead.
Duhe would rush for a touchdown two more times in the opening quarter, first on a 1-yard run at the 7:16 mark and again with a 2-yard strike with 1:28 remaining.
The fourth score of the opening quarter for the Rams also came on the ground, but this time it was not by the work of Duhe. Niko Roy was responsible for this strike, as he broke through for a 39-yard score in the final seconds of the first quarter.
This four-touchdown performance of the opening quarter presented the Rams a huge 28-0 lead that they would continue to increase.
The next quarter started no different for the Rams as Duhe exploded for a 40-yard run just 1:55 into the second period to make the game 34-0 after the missed extra-point attempt.
Gaudia proved the Rams are more than just a strong rushing team on the next score when he connected with Trenton Grow for a 20-yard passing touchdown, extending the lead to 41-0 going into halftime.
Duhe and the Rams came out of the break ready to build upon their performance. Duhe’s fifth touchdown of the night was also his longest – but this time it didn’t come on the ground.
Instead, it was from the arm of Gaudia as the two connected for a 70-yard score at the 7:45 mark of the third quarter.
Scores number six and seven for Duhe both came on the ground. First, a 30-yard rush at the end of the third, and then one for 29 yards that was the only score of the final quarter.
