South Jones-West Lauderdale

BJ Hawthorne picks up yardage before a a trio of West Lauderdale tacklers take him down.

Things started out rough for the South Jones and they just got worse as West Lauderdale scored on its first seven possessions to win big over the Braves, 57-12.

South Jones’ only touchdowns came in a 2-1/2-minute span in the second quarter. Chad Locklear threw a 61-yard strike to BJ Hawthone, then after recovering an onside kick, Locklear scored on a keeper from 2 yards out to cut the visitors’ lead to 22-12 with 7:10 remaining in the half. 

But from the there, the Knights (2-1) outscored South 28-2.

Quarterback Eli Bryan threw four TD passes and ran for another one to lead West Lauderdale. 

The Braves’ final points came on a safety after the Knights mishandled a snap in the end zone on a punt attempt midway through the fourth quarter.

The Braves (1-2) will be at Northeast Jones (1-2) next Friday night.
