Lake Arthur scores late to beat Tigers

By Mike Suchanek

From the start the game it seemed to be whoever had the ball last was going to be the winner and that is just how it turned out as Lake Arthur intercepted DeQuincy’s last ditch effort to score late.

Lake Arthur got the scoring started on their first drive as quarterback Jaxson Davis kept it for a 2 yard score.

DeQuincy got on the board on their next 2 drives. Carson Rainwater found Clifford Joyce on a 18 yard pass. The Kohen Cormier kick was good to knot the score at 7.

DeQuincy jumped right back in the scoring column on a seven yard scamper into the endzone. To put the home standing Tigers up 14-7 after the successful Cormier PAT.

Keidren LeDay stepped in front of a Lake Arthur pass and took it to the endzone on a 34 yard interception. DeQuincy found themselves up 21-7 once again after the successful Kohen Cormier PAT.

Lake Arthur then got the free 7 points right back as the Tigers fumbled the ball after a completed pass and Lake Arthur took it all the way back to the endzone for the score.

Carson Rainwater found Quentin Pharris on a 34 yard pitch and catch to close out the Tigers first half scoring.

However Lake Arthur wasn’t done for the half as Ray Levi scored from 15 yards out to close out the first half scoring.

Half time score DeQuincy 28, Lake Arthur 22.
