|West Monroe rips Huntington, 43-0, in District 1-5A play|
Still looking for that drive and intensity for four quarters which made the West Monroe football program the beast of the 1990s, the 2008 version of the Rebels (2-0) certainly gobbled up the Huntington Raiders Friday night in West Monroe.
Behind a a 114-yard rushing performance by D.J. Banks and a suffocating defense, the Rebels dismantled Huntington, 43-0.
Huntington (0-2) could do nothing to comepte with the size and strength of a Rebel offense that produced 268 yards rushing on the night.
Sophomore Tyler Caine started the scoring in the first quarter when he found the endzone from 5-yards out. West Monroe quickly got the ball back and LaDarius Abrams found a hole in the Huntington defense that sent him 24-yards to pay dirt for his fourth rushing touchdown of the season.
West Monroe led 14-0 before most of the red and blue faithful found their metal-clad seats.
Following another three and out by the Raiders, Banks scored the first of two rushing touchdowns with a 26-yard jaunt. Banks also threw for 125 yards on just 4-of-5 pass attempts.
"I thought we had a good game on offense," said West Monroe coach Don Shows. "We played better in the offensive line and had more intensity this week."
The Rebel defense got into the Huntington backfield all night long. The Raiders were limited to minus 14 rushing yards in the contest.
"We played hard on defense," Shows said. "Jordan (Allen) had a real good game. I thought the entire defense played good at one time or another."
West Monroe welcomes the Byrd Yellow Jackets to Rebel Stadium Friday night at 7 p.m. This marks the second consecutive district contest for West Monroe.
