|Delhi stays undefeated, 45-20|
The Delhi Charter Gators continued to devour the competition on Friday night with a resounding 45-20 victory over Lake Providence.
Delhi Charter (4-0) used a power running game early to soften up the Panthers defensive unit.
Lake Providence (2-2) keyed on DCS running back Randy Julian to limit him to 80 yards on 15 carries. Quarterback Stuart Scurria picked up from there with four touchdowns, a pair each rushing and passing.
"They focused on stopping the run," Gators head coach Bret Raley said. "I think it was great the way Stuart (Scurria) stepped up and made some big plays for us."
The two teams traded touchdowns in the first quarter as it appeared the Panthers had put together a game plan for success against the unbeaten Gators.
The Delhi Charter defense took over the game after allowing a quick Lake Providence score.
Hunter Sims scooped up a Lake Providence fumble deep in Gator territory and returned it for a 94-yard touchdown to turn the tide and put the momentum squarely with the Gators.
"The defense really stepped up for us tonight," Raley said. "Gabe (Roberson) and Hunter (Sims) had big ball games."
Roberson also helped put points on the scoreboard for Delhi Charter. Roberson had a pair of interceptions and returned the second pick deep into Panthers territory to set up a Scurria touchdown run.
"The guys just never seemed to get satisfied." Raley said. "Lake Providence was a much improved football team. Our guys are playing hard and getting better each week."
When all was said and done, DCS had forced five turnovers and scored a defensive touchdown in possibly their best performances of the season
A pair of key components were absent from the game Friday night. Ricki Gray and Reggie Carroll both set out with ailments.
Gray has been slowed by a knee injury while Carroll is battling headaches this week. Both could return to the field Friday against Sarepta.
Sarepta (1-3) will try to spread the defense of DCS out and throw the ball to multiple receivers.
Sarepta has seen itsí only victory of 2008 come two weeks ago in a 20-12 win over Lakeside.
