DeQuincy blanks Mamou
By Chris & Laurie Mueller
The DeQuincy Tigers started district 4-2A play with a bang as they dominated the Mamou Green Demons from start to finish, shutting them out 40-0 last week in Mamou.
It was the Chase Dyer and Javion Leday show as both players had huge nights running the ball.
Leday gained 195 yards on 17 carries and scored on runs of four, 47 and five yards. Dyer, the Tiger quarterback, only had seven carries but ended up with 174 yards and scoring on runs of 51 and 66 yards. Patrick Rogers scored the final touchdown of the night on a three yard run. Rogers had 50 yards on four carries and Mikey Hebert added 11 yards.
The Tigers rushed for 460 yards in the contest. The big boys on the offensive line did an outstanding job opening huge holes for the Tiger runners. Ashton Hollie, Caleb Jacobs, Jared Kuyper, Justin Olivier, Daniel Devito and Omar Hatch all had good games blocking.
The defense played a key roll as well as they shut down Mamou and got their second shutout of the year.
