|Undefeated Gators serve loss to LaSalle, 48-22|
The Delhi Charter Gators continued to feast on all comers with a 48-22 victory Friday night over LaSalle High School.
DCS (3-0) struck first on a 19-yard touchdown run by running back Randy Julian, who led the Gator ground game with 205 yards and four touchdowns.
Julian now has 10 rushing touchdowns through three games this season. Quarterback Stuart Scurria continued his weekly contributions to the offensive game.
The senior had 95 yards rushing and was 3-of-11 for 47 yards passing, but a trio of touchdown runs highlighted the game for Scurria and the Gators.
"Stuart (Scurria) rand and threw the ball real well," Delhi Charter coach Bret Raley said. "I thought we executed really good most of the night on offense."
LaSalle answered the Julian touchdown in quick order when quarterback Drew White found wide out Kenneth Smith in the end zone to tie things up 7-7.
A pair of Julian touchdown runs were punched in around a 86-yard punt return for a score by LaSalle (2-1).
Special teams play is one area of concern for DCS at this time.
"We have to work harder on special teams," Raley said. "We have got to get better in not allowing the big returns on kick coverage."
White, the senior from LaSalle, flourished in a new spread passing attach debuted by LaSalle. White finished up 15-of-26 passing for 231 yards and two touchdowns. A third quarter interception by the Gators and Ryan Hebert sealed the win for DCS.
Hebert was playing in his first game back from injury this season. The senior also recorded nine tackles for the Gators. Junior Hunter Sims was another defensive standout with a pair of sacks and tackles for losses as well.
"We had to adjust some to what they did on offense," Raley said. "I thought our defense adjusted and did really well in the second half."
The offensive line of Corey Reece, Kyle Hammonds, Drew Lewis, Reggie Carroll, and Hunter Pruitt got much praise from Raley after the game because of their effort in opening holes for their backs.
DCS out-gained LaSalle 388-24 yards on the ground in one of the team's best performances this season.
The Gators defense is giving up just over 8 yards per game rushing. This ranks them among the best-run defenses in Louisiana.
The Gators look to work on special teams and tackling in the week's preparation for Lake Providence (2-1). Kickoff at Lake Providence is set for 7 p.m.
