On Friday Night, the North Desoto Griffins (4-0) finally experienced the type of adversity that makes teams with championship aspirations figure out who they really are.
If you just see the 40-12 Griffins victory, that doesn’t tell the whole story. The Minden Crimson Tide started off their Homecoming Festivities with a 12-0 First Quarter due to ball control offense and special team miscues.
The Griffins were in a position rarely seen this season, one where they played from behind. They knuckled down in the 2nd quarter and the usual suspects finally joined the party.
Luke Delafield only completed 5 of 15 passes for 147 yards, but connected on two beautiful touchdowns to his favorite target Cole Cory who Finished with 4 catches and 150 yards receiving.
John Lewis and Brian Banks both scored touchdowns on the ground and Jordan Milton had the defensive trifecta, a sack, forced fumble and fumble recovery on the same play, that scored a touchdown for the Defense. Defense caused 4 total turnovers on the night to bring their season total takeaways to 21.
The Griffins return to the friendly confines of Stonewall for Homecoming v. BTW (0-4) on Friday Night at 7pm.
