|La. Patriots put out Spring Heat's fire|
The Louisiana Patriots picked up their first win of the 2010 season with a 47-0 thumping of the Spring Heat at Patriot Stadium in Winnsboro on Saturday night. Vernon Mills, coach of the squad, was the leading rusher for the Patriots. Mills had three carries of better than 10 yards including a 22 yard run which was the longest of the season for the Patriots.
Mills and Jonathan Collins each recorded five-yard touchdown runs for Louisiana.
Collins also followed his run with a two-point conversion run that put the visitors from Spring, Texas away for good.
The Patriots will be hitting the road to face the Lake Charles Panthers in their first road contest of the 2010 season this Saturday night.
The Patriot defense had by far its best performance of the season, holding the Heat out of the endzone from start to finish. Two interceptions keyed the night for the defense against the Heat. Kenny Kitchens had the defensive play of the night with a 75-yard interception return for a touchdown.
Cooper added a touchdown pass to his totals in the second quarter when he threw a strike to Kenneth Miller for 45-yards and a touchdown.
Teborheis Blunt also recorded a touchdown for the Patriots.
"We had a real good game offensively against Houston in the first game," general manager Frank Kitchens said. "We felt like some costly mistakes on defense caused us to lose that first game. We were dominating against Spring."
The team has been most pleased with the progression of the offensive line which has opened up holes for the backs to proceed making one of the top rushing attacks in the league in 2010. Even more help will be on the way as the team prepares for their next contest against Lake Charles.
"The offensive line is really coming along," Kitchens said. "I think the defense is playing really well. We will be adding some more depth to the offensive and defensive lines."
