|Richwood hosts Port Allen in first round of playoffs|
The Richwood Rams (7-3, 5-0 district 1-3A) put a pretty bow on their district championship regular season with a resounding 54-14 win over Madison Parish on Friday.
Richwood will now prepare to host Port Allen (5-3) in the opening round of the Class
3-A playoffs this Friday night.
Against the Madison Jaguars (1-9), Richwood scored early and often in building a huge lead that Madison only threatened early on.
"Our team is totally on the same page right now," Richwood head coach Warren Trimble said. "Our offensive and defensive execution was good. We always have something to work on."
Quarterback Greg Johnson began the scoring onslaught with an 8-yard run in the opening minutes of the football game. Hudson continued the Richwood scoring party with a three-yard touchdown jaunt of his own to give Richwood a 14-0 advantage.
The defense gave another solid effort on the night for Richwood. The unit also got on the scoreboard when Adrian Maryland recovered a Madison Parish fumble in the endzone.
Madison quarterback Hollis Meadows put the Jaguars on the scoreboard with a three-yard touchdown run in the second quarter. Meadows also recorded the two-point conversion to cut the Richwood lead down to 21-8 by halftime.
Madison scored right out of the gate to begin the second half. A third-quarter Meadows touchdown run of 17-yards cut the lead to 21-14.
Richwood then went on an offensive tear. Johnson picked up his second rushing score of the night with a 62-yard run in the third quarter.
Richwood had 321 yards rushing compared to just 108 rushing yards for Madison. But neither team was very effective in the passing game.
Johnson passed for just 7 yards on 1-of-6 attempts while Madison's Meadows was 9-of-18 for 96 yards and one interception passing. Madison never found the endzone through the air on a potent Richwood secondary.
Richwood back-up quarterback Anthony Abraham carried the ball eight times for 75 yards in the contest.
The Richwood-Port Allen clash should be an interesting match-up of programs with solid playoff histories, though not with one another. The Pelicans are hurting offensively after managing just 15-yards of offense last week against Brusly. While the offense has struggled to consistently put up points for the No.24 Port Allen squad, the defense has been dynamite as of late.
The Port Allen defense is led by T.J. Hebert, who blocked a punt and scored the only Port Allen touchdown last week. Hebert is a key contributor to the defense at his defensive back spot with several takeaways to his credit.
Port Allen has dealt with injuries this month in a declining offense production-wise. Port Allen points went from 28 points per game in a three-game win streak to just over 11 points per game over the three-game skid they are currently riding into Richwood.
