This time, it was the Lutcher Bulldogs building an early lead.
A week after falling behind quickly in a 36-27 loss to previously winless Parkview Baptist, Lutcher jumped out to a quick 14-0 lead on the Bulldogs’ way to a 49-0 domination of visiting St. Michael’s in District 6-4A action Friday night.
The result left both Lutcher and St. Michael’s 4-3 overall and 1-1 in district play.
“We got off to a great start. That’s one of the things we talked about was to start fast. St. Michael’s came in with a little confidence after the start of the year that they had and we thought it was important to get off to a good start,” Lutcher coach Dwain Jenkins said.
The Bulldogs scored on their opening possession of the game on a 15-yard pass from quarterback Kolby Bourgeois to Cam Amato.
Lutcher forced a turnover to set up a 20-yard scoring pass from Bourgeois to Rashon Williams to build its lead 14-0 advantage.
A 14-yard touchdown pass to Adrian Butler made it 21-0 before the Bulldogs added a 1-yard run by Rondell Mealey right before halftime to lead 28-0 at the break.
After the Bulldogs scored on the opening drive of the second half, Lutcher added touchdown runs of 37 yards by Mealey and 2 yards by backup quarterback Mekhi Patterson to account for the 49-0 final.
Lutcher rolled up 419 yards of total offense, including 196 passing and 223 rushing.
“We were able to stay balanced. We were able to distribute the ball to a couple of different guys and were able to spread the ball out in a lot of different ways,” Jenkins said.
The Bulldog defense held the Warriors to 61 total yards.
“We really dominated up front. I thought our defensive line did a great job and our linebackers were able to fill in and make a lot of tackles,” said Jenkins.
