Lusher will follow their dominant showing against Thomas Jefferson last week (largely on the back of Southshore player of the week, Miles Stewart) with a home game against the White Castle Bulldogs tonight at 7pm. Go Lions!
Lusher won their first football game of the season Thursday night in dominant fashion. After falling behind 7-0 in the first quarter, the Lions scored 47 unanswered points to defeat the Thomas Jefferson Jaguars 47-7 at Hoss Memtsas Stadium. Click here for the webcast and box score.
From the Advocate recap linked above:
“We practiced to win and we executed tonight,” Lusher coach J.J. Smith said. “We needed this win, but more importantly the kids played like they wanted it. We had our opportunities and we took advantage of them.”
Miles Stewart lead all players with 121 yards from scrimmage — and his night could’ve been more dominant, as 117 yards and two touchdowns were negated by penalties.
Stewart bludgeoned the Jaguars on the first play from scrimmage in the second half, when he raced around the right end for a 21-yard touchdown. He added a 14-yard touchdown run to stretch the Lions’ lead to 34-7 with 7:10 remaining in the third quarter.
