BATON ROUGE – Parkview Baptist avenged a 17-0 loss from one year ago with a big 44-0 win Friday night over Brusly.

Forcing five turnovers on Brusly’s first five possessions, the Eagles jumped out to a 30-0 halftime lead after coverting the turnovers into 27 points.

“I was glad we were able to capitalize on the turnovers,” Parkview coach Stefan Lefors said. “We created and finished drive. That was an emphasis for us since early in the season.”

Parkview (5-1, 4-1) added two fourth quarter scores, both passing touchdowns from Roman Mula, who Completed 12-of-15 tosses for 136 yards and three scores. He also added a rushing touchdown.

Eagles receiver Micah Johnson caught touchdown passes our eight and 30 yards.

Issac Ponder paced the Parkview run game with a career-high 153 yards on 19 carries.

Brusly (3-3, 2-3) turned the ball over on their first two plays from scrimmage. Josh Westly ran seven yards and then coughed up the ball, leading to a Mula quarterback keeper by Mula to cap an eight-play Eagle drive. A strip and touchdown return of 34 yards from Wyatt Beck gave Parkview Baptist a 13-0 lead.

The Panthers moved the ball deep into Eagles territory on their third drive before quarterback Sammy Daquano was intercepted by Clayton Comeaux. Parkview then out together a 92 yard march ending in a 23-yard touchdown pass to Andre Haynes to give Parkview a 20-0 before the end of the opening period.

“Right off the bat,” Brusly coach Hoff Schooler said in frustration of his team’s turnover woes. “Parkview is a very good, well-coached football team. You can’t give them short fields and extra possessions.”

Brusly visits Glen Oaks next week while Parkview faces Madison Prep.
