Lutcher rides big first half to 35-6 win at Dutchtown
GEISMAR – The Lutcher Bulldogs rolled the home-standing Dutchtown Griffins, taking advantage of penalties, drops and other muscues in 34-6 victory Friday night.
Dutchtown netted 162 total yards while piling up 109 yards in penalties during a rough night for the offense.
The Bulldogs were led by Rondell Mealey who totaled three scores and 117 total yards.
“I thought we played outstanding,” Lutcher Head coach Dwain Jenkins said. “The defense did a great job all night long.I think I need to buy our defensive coordinator lunch one day after putting up that shutout.”
Dutchtown’s only score came on 100-yard interception return by Jordan Jackson to trim the Lutcher lead to 28-6 early in the fourth period.
“We got a little impatient down there by the goal line,” Jenkins added, “Good players make good plays, and Mr. Jackson over there for Dutchtown is a pretty good football player.”
Mealey’s third score from two yards out provided the final margin in a dominant effort by the visitors.
Lutcher scored first on a eight-yard run by Mealey and added to their advantage on five-yard QB keeper by Kolby Bourgeois on the first play of the second quarter.
In the final minute of the first half, the Bulldogs added a one-two punch of sorts to take total command. A 26 yard touchdown strike from Bourgeois to Mealey made it 21-0. Then with just six seconds to play in the first half, Lutcher blocked a Dutchtown punt, and Ivan Clark recovered the loose ball for a touchdown.
Lutcher (3-2) open district visiting 0-5 Parkview Baptist while Dutchtown open district visiting 5-0 East Ascension.
