|Richwood hosts Notre Dame in QF round|
The Richwood Rams (9-3) blasted Booker T. Washington on Friday night, 46-18, to advance to the third-round of the Louisiana High School Athletic Association Class 3A playoffs.
No.1 Notre Dame (11-0) will invade Rams Stadium this week as Richwood has a chance to advance past the round of eight in Class 3A for the first time under fifth-year head coach Warren Trimble.
Booker T. Washington got on the scoreboard first when running back Jessie Sheppard found a crease and hit the hole on his way to a 31-yard touchdown run.
The score was the third touchdown run of the playoffs this season for Sheppard who led the Shreveport-area in rushing yards during the 2008 season.
The Richwood special teams unit quickly got the Rams back into the contest with a 55-yard punt return for a touchdown by Richard Wilson.
Wilson also scored on a nine-yard run in the third quarter for a total of 59 yards on eight carries and two touchdown runs.
"We made some big plays and played real good defense in the second half," Richwood's Trimble said. "Our defense is playing well and the offense is scoring some points out there for us."
Sheppard gave the lead back to the Lions on the next drive as he plunged in from one-yard out during an extended scoring drive.
Sheppard ran for 86 yards and two touchdowns to pace the Lions offense. Richwood ran for 283 yards compared to just 93 yards for Booker T. Washington.
Richwood's Greg Johnson knotted the score at 14-14 when he found the end-zone on a 15-yard run in the second-quarter.
Johnson was the leading rusher for the Rams with 100 yards on 17 carries and he also passed for 59 yards on 7-of-9 pass attempts. Another Johnson score gave Richwood a 20-14 lead at halftime.
Backup quarterback Anthony Abraham scored a pair of touchdowns and 91 yards on 10 carries.
For the sixth consecitive game, Cedric Goins was the leading reciever for Richwood with three receptions for 46 yards.
Continuing the trend of getting every phase of the game involved for Richwood, Lamartris Alexander returned a blocked punt 42 yards for a touchdown in the fourth-quarter to stamp a quarterfinal ticket for the Rams.
The top-ranked team of Class 3A, Notre Dame High School of Crowley, will come to Rams Stadium this week for the third round.
Notre Dame has been dominant all over the field in 2008, especially on defense where they have allowed just 6.9 points per game.
The power of this program has been proven time and time again. The program reached the 3A state championship game in both 2004 and 2005 before losing in the semi-final round in 2006.
"We will need to have a great week of focus and preparation," Trimble said. "They have a great team as well as one of the best defenses we have seen this year."
Running back Stu Cook is a go-to player for the Pioneers. Cook ran four times for 5 yards and two touchdowns as the starters saw limited action in a 54-7 whomping of Church Point last week in second-round action.
Nick Zaunbrecker, nephew of former Northeast Louisiana University head coach Ed Zaunbrecker, is a top wide reciever who caught a touchdown pass last week for Notre Dame.
Kickoff at Rams Stadium is set for 7 p.m.
