|Richwood rips Port Allen, prepares for second round|
The Richwood Rams (8-3) extended their winning streak to eight games Friday night with a 42-7 win in dominating fashion over Port Allen.
The win sets up a second-round playoff road trip to district rival Booker T. Washington High School of Shreveport.
In the first round, the Rams literally ran away with the victory by topping 320 yards rushing on offense.
The No.9 Rams ran over and around the No.24 Port Allen squad with quarterback Greg Johnson leading the way.
Johnson ran for 114 yards and two touchdowns on 10 carries. The senior quarterback also completed 6-of-13 pass attempts for 73 yards.
Johnson hooked up with wide receiver Cedric Goins on a 25-yard touchdown pass in the fourth quarter to seal the victory for the Rams.
As has been the case lately for Richwood, the win came in a good team effort with multiple running backs adding up yards to go behind Johnson's effort.
Anthony Abraham ran for 91 yards on eight carries in the game. Richard Wilson rushed for 57 yards on three carries, and Greg Hudson picked up 46 yards on 10 carries.
The Richwood offense has been on a tear the past month of this season. The Rams have outscored opponents 197-55 during that time frame.
The game got interesting at the beginning of the second quarter with a touchdown pass from Port Allen quarterback Marcus Parker to Ernest Bynum from six yards out.
The 8-7 score would be the closest that Port Allen would be able to get on Friday night. Richwood proceeded to score 34 consecutive points to put the game out of reach.
Parker was 3-of-6 for 34 yards and a touchdown as well as rushing for 41 yards on 12 carries to lead Port Allen in the first-round losing effort.
Richwood will travel to district rival Booker T. Washington of Shreveport this Friday. Richwood defeated BTW 28-14 at Lions Stadium in week seven of the season.
Richwood will be playing a BTW squad that had some late-game heroics against Buckeye last week to make a home date with the Rams. With just more than a minute remaining in the game, quarterback Demarcus Wesley was intercepted in what would have sealed the season for BTW. But a facemask penalty negated the pick and gave the Lions new life.
Two plays later, Wesley passed to wide receiver Casterdale Williams for a game-winning touchdown from 32-yards away.
BTW will test the Richwood defense through the air, which Richwood handled very well in the last meeting. Richwood was penalized 10 times for 87 yards last week.
More discipline and another solid running game may be a key to victory this week for the Rams.
Kickoff in Shreveport is scheduled for 7 p.m. on the campus of Booker T. Washington High School.
