|West Ouachita seeks first road victory at Haughton|
The West Ouachita Chiefs (1-2) will look for their first road victory of the 2009 season as they visit Haughton (1-2) this Friday night.
West Ouachita is coming off a 28-8 loss at home to the Captain Shreve Gators last week.
Trailing by seven points at halftime, Captain Shreve found some of its offensive spark that helped them pull away from the Chiefs.
Terrell Jordan and Brandon Wilson each had over 100 yards rushing and three touchdowns, while quarterback Jordan Barnett threw for a touchdown to Johnny Reisz.
Weather conditions caused several fumbles and miscues for the West Ouachita offense that stalled drives and made life difficult for the West Ouachita defense all night long.
West Ouachita running back Billy Minnifield led the team in rushing with 53 yards on 11 carries. He also caught four passes for 26 yards.
Senior quarterback T.J. Murphy scored the lone West Ouachita touchdown but ran for just 13 yards on 11 rushing attempts. Murphy completed 14-of-30 pass attempts for 111 yards and no interceptions.
Haughton picked up a 49-6 victory over Woodlawn last week. The stout Haughton defense forced 10 fumbles and recovered seven of them in the lopsided victory. Haughton scored early and often, putting up 22 points in the second quarter alone thanks in large part to the passing of Dak Prescott and the running of Marlon Seets.
The Haughton defense was led by Daniel Doran, Jeremy Long, Brandon Curry, and Spencer Tipton. They shut down the Woodlawn offense and forced several key turnovers to roll to victory.
Marlon Seets is the leading Haughton rusher and finished the game with 102 yards on 15 carries. He started the season with a 58-yard touchdown run. Prescott completed 4-of-9 pass attempts for 123 yards and two touchdowns. The score was a 32-yard completion to Damon Gladney and a 24 yarder to Kyle Akers.
This week West Ouachita will try to clamp down on the Haughton rushing attack and force the Haughton offense into long passing downs.
West Ouachita coaches said the team must take better care of the football as they cannot afford costly turnovers.
The game can be heard live at 6:30 p.m. on ESPN 97.7 FM.
