PORT ARTHUR —
Add a shutout to PN-G’s resume
Everyone knew the Indians offense would be pretty tough to stop this year with skill players like Ky Walker, Jeremiah Rose, Kaleb Sparks and Brant Halfin.
Now the talk of the town could shift a bit towards the PN-G defense, after not letting the Lumberton Raiders reach the end zone. Lumberton only had 161 yards for the game, nine first downs and the Raiders had three turnovers.
Michael Hughes brought back an interception 88 yards for a touchdown in the impressive start to District 20-4A play. It was the second interception of the season for the Indians, the first coming by Brandon Bryan.
PN-G’s defense will be tested this Friday at home against the Little Cypress-Mauriceville Bears. LC-M put up 413 yards last Friday in a 28-21 win over Livingston.
Second half sparks Titans win
Memorial needed a strong second half to pull out a 19-16 win over the Deer Park Deer.
The Titans trailed the Deer 14-6 at the half and Kenny Harrison and his coaches made sure the players knew Memorial was losing because of what Memorial was doing up to that point. The Titans were having to settle for field goals instead of scoring touchdowns.
Memorial got two touchdown runs from quarterback Tayylor Labrie in the second half to secure the win. Labrie finished with 50 yards on the ground in the win while tailback Kameron Martin finished with 90 yards.
Harrison had to be pleased with the fact the Titans had no turnovers in the game.
The Titans look to start the district schedule with a 2-0 mark this Friday with a road trip to Channelview.
