Last Friday Night for Blackout Night, the North Desoto Griffins tried hard to blackout the Loyola Flyers on the scoreboard as they cruised to a 49-7 win.
Luke Delafield had his coming out party as the freshman phenom tossed 5 First half touchdown passes and was 14/24 for 216 yards. Trysten Hopper was on the receiving end of two, and Landon Falls, Cole Cory and Sam Odom all pitched in with one of their own.
Loyola tried to stop the bleeding after two quick first quarter touchdowns as Cooper Defatta scored on a one yard plunge, but after that score the Griffin defense led by Tackle leader Hunter Addison locked the gates and limited the Flyers to only 156 yards for the game. Addison logged 11 tackles for the game and BT McMillian followed suit with 8 of his own.
Addison recovered a fumble in the endzone for a TD and that makes the third game in a row that the Griffins have had a Special Teams or Defensive Touchdown on the season.
After a 42-7 first half, the Griffins scored on their ensuing drive of the first half with a 10 yard Brian Banks run. After the scoreboard hit 49-7 there was a continuous running clock for the duration of the game and much to the fans delight, every Griffin dressed to play gained valuable varsity playing time.
The Griffins begin district 1-4A play on Friday as they travel to play the Minden Crimson Tide. Last week they notched their first win of the season as they defeated the North Webster Knights 39-27.
