|OCS, Sterlington ready to tangle|
The Ouachita Christian School Eagles (2-0) will host the Sterlington Panthers (2-0) in one of the most anticipated rivalry games of the season.
The rivalry gets rebooted this Friday night when the Panthers visit Eagle Stadium for a 7 p.m. kickoff.
The Eagles blasted the Vidalia Vikings 53-0 last week as Mark Laird scored four touchdowns. Laird scored on two touchdown receptions as well as a 60-yard punt return and a 99-yard fumble return for a touchdown which goes down as one of the longest fumble returns in OCS history.
The 56-yard and 43-yard touchdown receptions by Laird give the senior five receiving touchdowns and 257 receiving yards in just two regular season games. The scores also were a part of a huge opening frame that saw OCS forge ahead 27-0 going into the second quarter.
Paul Michael Garner passed for four touchdowns including a 14-yard score to Bo Spencer and a 42-yard strike to Matt Parker. Garner also scored on a 12-yard touchdown run in the second quarter.
Now the Eagles host the Sterlington Panthers, a team that is as red hot as any team in the parish at this time.
Sterlington comes in following a 37-8 win over the Class 3A Caldwell Spartans. Sterlington is averaging a whopping 32 points per game and has played up in classification in each of the two regular season games they have played in the 2009 season.
One of the most productive offensive units in Class 2A this season, Sterlington has been able to do some major damage by holding onto the football and not giving their opponents cheap turnovers.
"I think protecting the football with no turnovers has been a key," Sterlington head coach Mike Collins said. "Also we have gotten real good effort out of our guys this year."
Sterlington escaped with a big 33-30 victory last season and the rivalry has stayed real competitive from year to year.
"The thing that concerns you the most is that it is a rivalry," Collins said. "You can throw everything out the window in a game like this and we just have to be ready."
One component that has been constantly good this year has been the play of Sterlington quarterback Logan Dobson. Dobson completed his first seven pass attempts with four touchdowns. Dobson passed for touchdowns of 45-yards to Patrick Sutton and 69-yards to d'Mardrei Richardson in the first half.
