|Chiefs blow past Sterlington|
Building on their confidence following last week's homecoming win, the West Ouachita Chiefs continued to turn heads Friday night with a resounding 41-20 win over parish rival Sterlington.
The Sterlington Panthers (2-4) defense continues to struggle with depth issues and could not contain a massive rushing attack by West Ouachita (3-3).
The Chiefs rolled up 363 yards on the ground compared to just 23 yards rushing for Sterlington.
The Panthers lost a lot of yards on sacks and bad exchanges in the shotgun formation between the center and quarterback.
Turnovers are always a big deciding factor in games. None more than on Friday night when Sterlington had four turnovers compared to three for West Ouachita.
A trio of interceptions by Sterlington quarterback Logan Dobson offset an otherwise productive night passing the ball. Dobson was 13-of-27 for 211 yards and two touchdowns before the picks and fumbles caused mayhem for the Panthers.
Chiefs quarterback Matt Calhoun rushed for 119 yards and two touchdowns. Fullback Billy Minnifield diced through the Panthers defense for 172 yards and a three scores to push West Ouachita to victory.
"Matt (Calhoun) is running our offense real effective," West Ouachita head coach Mitch Thomas said. "Our running game is coming along and our offensive line has gone above and beyond the past two weeks."
A trio of sophomores and two freshmen up front have given the Chiefs a solid foundation for a bright future along the offensive line.
Following a Minnifield touchdown run of 52 yards to open the scoring, Sterlington answered on a 23-yard touchdown pass from Dobson to DeUndre Gray. The two-point conversion led to Sterlington seizing their only lead of the game in the second quarter,
Calhoun had back-to-back touchdown runs in the second quarter to send West Ouachita into the lockers with a 27-14 halftime lead.
Sterlington again clawed back into the game with a 55-yard scoring pass from Dobson to Cole Bagby, but would not get any closer than 27-20 the rest of the way.
Minnifield finished off the Panthers with a pair of fourth-quarter touchdown runs to seal the deal for the home-standing Chiefs.
