North Desoto 13, Logansport 12

The New Look Griffins started off their portion of the jamboree in the worst possible manner turning the Ball over in consecutive drives, one of which was a Luke Delafield PICK 6 to the Tigers that put them up 6-0 before the scoreboard hit 14 minutes. After the offense settled down they were able to show off their version of Thunder and Lightning with Senior Running Backs John Lewis and Brian Banks taking turns running over and around the Logansport defense. Lewis scored on 16 yard run and later Delafield scored on a TD run himself. As the Griffins and Tigers settled in, Logansport came within tying the game with a later touchdown aided by costly Griffin Defensive penalties. Logansport’s 2pt conversion attempt failed as the griffins escaped Quarter 1 of their jamboree.

North Desoto 21, Mansfield 0

If you were looking for the quarter versus Mansfield to be a ground based affair like the first one, you were shocked to see North Desoto’s versatility as they commenced to light up the Mansfield sky to the tune of 3 passing touchdowns from Freshman QB Luke Delafield. Senior Speedster Landon Falls caught the first and third TD and Sophomore Cole Cory caught the second as the ND offense overwhelmed the Wolverines and the Griffin’s defense smothered Mansfield as they gained only 1 first down during the 15 minute quarter.

After Delafield’s Interception return for a touchdown North Desoto outscored their opponents 35-6.

North Desoto opens their season v. Airline at Home on Thursday night.

Logansport begins their season versus Calvary on Thursday night at Calvary Baptist.

Mansfield opens with Huntington on Saturday night in the annual Battle on the Border in Shreveport.
