|OCS looks to Vidalia after stopping Mangham, 40-31|
The Ouachita Christian School Eagles (1-0) poured it on in a 40-31 victory over the Mangham Dragons (0-1) in the first week of the Louisiana High School Athletic Association regular season.
OCS quarterback Paul Michael Garner completed 10-of-18 pass attempts for 226 yards and four touchdowns and Mark Laird was on the receiving end of three of the scores.
Braiden Bristo scored his first varsity touchdown in the second quarter on a five-yard touchdown run.
"I thought we did some real good things out there," OCS head coach Steven Fitzhugh said. "I thought Paul Michael (Garner) really grew up and got better. He is learning when to make plays and when to just eat it and take a sack. He has matured a lot in the last few weeks."
Mangham was just 1-of-3 in the passing game but ripped the OCS defense apart for 218 yards rushing. Shaquille Ausberry led the Mangham attack with 100 yards on 18 carries and two touchdowns.
Quarterback Montrell Hardman went for 195 yards and two touchdowns, while adding 18 yards passing.
Hardman also threw one interception that eventually led to another Eagle score as the OCS defense showed their speed and ball hawking abilities.
Legendary Vidalia head coach Dee Faircloth will bring his Vikings into the game after a victory at Block last week. The game was a long time coming after the 2008 game was cancelled thanks to the large amounts of rain in Jonesville following Hurricane Gustav.
OCS will be working on defensive assignments this week as they go up against a large and physical Viking offensive line. The team will look to balance the offense and make strides in what they have already done well. With just 76 yards rushing against Mangham, OCS will attempt to establish a more potent rushing attack against a large defensive line that the Vikings will present to them this week.
The fact that Vidalia is a 3A team also cannot hurt as it gives the Eagles a chance to earn important power points toward their playoff ranking early on in the season.
OCS will automatically receive four points for playing up two classifications but could earn 14 points with a win over the Vikings on Friday night.
For those not able to attend the game in person, KHLL 100.9 FM will broadcast the contest beginning with a pre-game program at 6:30 p.m.
