Until last week’s 38-16 loss to East St. John, Hahnville had been averaging more than 40 points per game.
Hahnville reached the 40-point mark in its Homecoming game Friday against Thibodaux – in the second half.
HHS held a slim 24-21 halftime lead over Thibodaux before exploding for 40 points over the final two quarter to take a 64-35 win in District 7-5A action.
Before Hahnville got rolling, it was Thibodaux which scored first in the second half to take a 28-24 lead before the St. Charles Parish-based Tigers scored the next 40 points.
Hahnville (3-1 overall, 2-1 in district) started its second-half scoring avalanche on a touchdown pass from quarterback Andrew Naquin to Corey Lorio as HHS regained the lead at 30-28.
Naquin tossed another of his five touchdowns pass less than a minute later on a scoring strike to Troy Kendrick as the Hahnville lead expanded to 37-28.
Hahnville running back Trey LaBranch scored one of his three touchdowns in the game to give his team a 44-28 lead late in the third quarter.
Naquin hooked up with tight end Collin Zeringue on a touchdown toss early in the fourth quarter for a 50-28 Hahnville lead.
After LaBranch added another rushing touchdown, Jeremy White concluded the scoring with another score.
In a closely-contest opening half, Naquin hooked up with Dakota Williams and Lorio on touchdown passes.
LaBranch’s first touchdown of the night and a Tate White field goal accounted for Hahnville’s first-half points
Thibodaux (1-3 overall, 1-2 in district) countered with a 51-yard run by Luke Alleman and a 21-yard pass from the THS quarterback to Ferronte Miller.
