|La. Patriots to host Hard Hittaz|
The Louisiana Patriots (3-1) downed the Gulf Coast Outlaws (3-1) by a score of 14-12 last Saturday. The win was the third straight for Louisiana and the first loss of the 2010 season for Gulf Coast.
The Patriots will be off this week before hosting the 3rd Coast Hard Hittaz at Patriot Stadium during the Catfish Festival on Saturday, April 10 at 7 p.m. Playing at the undefeated Outlaws, the Outlaws stuffed the Patriot defense on three straight possessions to begin the first quarter. Likewise, the Patriots continued their solid play on the defensive side with a few big plays of their own. With seconds remaining in the first quarter, Gulf Coast hit a 30-yard touchdown pass to take a 6-0 lead into the second quarter.
The Patriots began to get things together as an offense. Running back Teborheis Blunt broke free for the big play of the first half for the Patriots when he rambled 68 yards. The drive stalled because of penalities and an eventual turnover deep in Gulf Coast territory.
Quarterback Mitch Cooper finally got the Patriots on the scoreboard after the defense stopped the Outlaws on the ensuing possession.
Cooper found Compton Cotton for a 45-yard touchdown pass.
The Patriots missed the extra point to end the first half with a 6-6 tie.
The Patriots again played outstanding defense throughout the second half and neither team could manage a touchdown during the third quarter.
The Louisiana defense recorded seven sacks and three interceptions during the contest.
Kenny Kitchen took over at quarterback with eight minutes remaining in the game and engineered the winning drive for the Patriots. Kitchen passed to Cotton for a 10-yard gain on a fourth-down conversion that kept hope alive for the Patriots. Minutes later, Kitchen found a hole around the left end and ran 10-yards for the game-tieing touchdown. Tony Shaw converted a two-yard run for the two-point conversion to clinch the win for the Patriots.
Cooper was 2-of-10 for 55 yards and Kitchen went 3-of-5 and 35 yards passing.
Blunt led the Patriots on the ground with 133 yards on just six carries. Cotton made three catches for 65 yards and Bennett had 10 yards receiving.
