Memorial overpowers Baytown Sterling, 42-0

(Continued)

BAYTOWN — “Tayylor seems to be getting better each week,” Harrison said. “He continues to minimize his mistakes. Roderic finally looked to be near 100-percent healthy. He had a great week of practice and I know the off week really helped him heal a little more.”

The Titans finished the game with 428 yards, third most this season.

Corey Dauphine led all rushers with 72 yards on 10 carries and scored the last touchdown of the game from 16 yards out. Kameron Martin, who had a 31-yard touchdown run, added 57 rushing yards on nine touches while Labrie had 43 yards on the ground.

“I am proud of our offense and the game they played,” Harrison said. “The biggest thing is we didn’t have a turnover. We have to clean up the penalties. Most of them came from our receivers trying to make a play and holding on a run play. Those are things we can correct and will work on before next Friday.”

Memorial had 11 penalties for 115 yards. Sterling was flagged eight times for 65 yards.

The Titans can clinch their fifth straight trip to the playoffs with a win next week against Beaumont West Brook. Memorial has defeated West Brook two years in a row after winning last year’s contest against the Bruins, 49-17.

West Brook leads the all-time series 6-5.

“Next week is big,” Harrison said. “It will feel good to play at home. We are at a point in the season where if you aren’t motivated then there is something wrong with you. The kids are focused and we will be ready to play in a big 21-5A game.”
