Straughn falls hard on the road

BEAUREGARD – Straughn’s Tigers broke out for a 35-yard touchdown run on fourth down early in the first quarter Friday, but had it called back on a personal foul penalty.

It was the beginning of a bad luck night for the traveling Tigers, who fell 48-0 on the road.

When Beauregard took over after Straughn’s missed TD, quarterback Quay Wright threw an interception inside Straughn territory on first down. But the Hornets forced a three-and-out.

It wasn’t long before Beauregard put points on the board, when Wright went in easily from 15 yards out. The Hornets missed the PAT, but were up 6-0 with 1:39 left in the first.

A few minutes later, with 7:48 in the second, LaDamion Webb scored from eight yards out to put the Hornets up 13-0.

A minute-and-a-half later, Beauregard put another TD on the board when Hunter Feaster picked off a pass on third down and took it to the endzone.  With 6:16 left in the half, they went up 20-0.

A strong Beauregard defense stonewalled the Tigers on their next possession.

When the Hornets took over four plays later, with just over a minute left in the half, the quarterback connected on a 55-yard pass, but this time it was Beauregard’s turn to have a taste of bad medicine. The touchdown was called back on an ineligible receiver call.

It was a play the Hornets got right the next time, scoring on a 59-yard pass play from Wright to Senn with 8:45 left in the third.

Later in the third, Beauregard scored on a 58-yard quarterback keeper on fourth down to put the Hornets up 34-0 with 3:35 left in the third.

The Hornets would go on to score on a 14-yard run on the first play of the fourth quarter to make it 41-0, and Beauregard’s backup quarterback Caleb Cook scored from the 12 with 9:51 left in the fourth.

The Tigers, now 1-4, are on the road to Montgomery Catholic next week.
