|Sterlington falls to Loyola|
The Sterlington Panthers fell behind early and could not be saved by a huge third quarter outburst as they fell to the Loyola Flyers Friday night, 31-22.
Loyola jumped out to a 24-0 first-half advantage before Sterlington made their big comeback.
Sterlington was without four players Friday night, who were suspended because of non-academic reasons. Starting running backs De'Undre Gray and Marquis Douglas and LaDarius Thomas and D'Vario Montgomery did not suit up against Loyola.
"We dug too deep of a hole early," Sterlington head coach Mike Collins said. "We made some plays in the third quarter, but the we were in too deep after the first half."
First-year head coach Steven Geter has given the Loyola community reason for optimism this year: The victory was the first road playoff win for Loyola Prep since 1998.
Loyola started the scoring with a 76-yard drive that ended with a 10-yard touchdown strike from quarterback Anthony McMaster to wide receiver Micheal Conner.
Loyola wasted little time in extending the lead in the start of the second quarter with a 52-yard jaunt by John Montgomery for a 14-0 lead. Montgomery ran for 140 yards until a MCL injury sidelined him in the third quarter. Loyola relied heavily on the passing game after the injury to Montogomery.
Loyola's McMaster completed 20-of-34 pass for 243 yards and two touchdowns. He found wide receiver Patrick Harrington on a 51-yard strike with less than four-minutes remaining in the second quarter to send Loyola to the lockers with a 21-0 advantage.
Sterlington collected just 24 yards on 27 carries rushing. The Panthers went to their pass game in the second half and had moderate success through the leadership of quarterback Logan Dobson.
Dobson found wide-out Tim Cain for a 54-yard score in the third quarter to put Sterlington on the board at 24-7.
A Loyola fumble three plays later set up another Dobson touchdown to bring the score to 24-14.
The replacement for Montgomery, Austin Mathias, capped a 57-yard drive with a seven-yard touchdown jaunt to give the Flyers a 31-14 advantage.
D'Mardei Richardson scored on the next Sterlington possession on a nice 35-yard run to pull Sterlington to within 31-22. That would be the final score of the night for either team.
Loyola played an undisciplined game but was unaffected because of their great defensive effort. Loyola came away with 22 penalties for a whopping 209 yards.
Sterlington ends their season with a record of 5-6.
