Lusher blanks Haynes on senior night, 44-0
The Lusher offense came alive to pick up the first district victory for the Lions against Haynes on Senior Night and Homecoming on Friday night at Brees Family Field.
The 44-0 win snapped Lusher’s five-game losing streak.
Ari Broussard finished the game with 10 rushes for 148 yards and four touchdowns while Miles Stewart had 103 yards on nine carries.
Lusher’s average field position for the game was the Haynes 43 yard line.
Lions senior Joshua Stiger normally plays wide receiver but he began the game lined up under center. Stiger’s first career touchdown pass, a 29 yarder to senior tight end Donald Saulny, put the Lions on the board.
On the next possession, Haynes punter Joshua Christofferson had to chase down a snap over his head and recover the ball at his own 15 yard line. Lusher quickly responded when senior Ari Broussard scored his first touchdown on a 15-yard run.
Stiger’s second touchdown pass came on Lusher’s next possession when he connected with wideout Evan Simons for a 28 yard score. Lusher took a 21-0 lead in the second quarter.
Christofferson was victimized by another high snap over his head, but this time the ball sailed out of the endzone for a safety.
A good return by Lusher’s Chad Britton put the Lions at the Yellow Jackets 30 yard line. Broussard’s 20-yard touchdown added to the big Lions advantage.
On the next drive, Lusher senior linebacker Kai Davis picked off Haynes quarterback Zachary Bott to help set up Broussard’s third touchdown run from six yards out. Lucher led 37-0 at the half.
Haynes was unable to generate much offense. The Yellow Jackets were held to -30 net yards and four first downs. Haynes running back Gavin Burns finished with 24 yards on 23 carries.
Senior lineman Tamir Bryant led the Lions defense with nine tackles including four tackles for loss.
Broussard recorded his fourth touchdown of the game in the third quarter on a 19-yard run.
