|OCS looks for rebound at Homer|
The Ouachita Christian School Eagles (2-1) will look to bounce back from defeat as they hit the road to visit the Homer Pelicans.
Last week, OCS grabbed an early 7-0 lead when quarterback Paul Michael Garner found wide receiver Mark Laird for a 30-yard score. Senior kicker Taylor Dawson added the extra point to give the Eagles the early advantage.
Sterlington responded with a long drive that ended with an eight-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Logan Dopson to Clay Branton just before halftime.
Sterlington took the lead in the third quarter when they finally drove down the field behind the arm of Dopson and the hands of Branton, who had six receptions for 61 yards on the night.
Branton scored on a 27-yard reception from a Dopson pass with just over two minutes remaining in the game and then caught the two-point conversion to give the Panthers the advantage.
His brother, Clint, seemed to have put the game away when he intercepted an OCS pass with under two minutes remaining.
The Sterlington offense quickly faltered when an option pitch popped into the hands of OCS' Shawn Key, who raced untouched into the endzone.
A trap inside on the two-point conversion — which had been successful early in the game for OCS — was stopped short of the goal line on the next play to seal the win for Sterlington thanks to a big tackle by junior linebacker Dustin Theut.
This week, Homer is also coming off a loss in their big rivalry game against the Haynesville Golden Tornados.
Dual-threat quarterback Tony Casey rushed for 226 yards on a whopping 42 carries. He also rushed for the lone Homer touchdown in the second quarter.
He will be the biggest threat for the OCS defense as he has the game-changing ability to go for a big play at any moment.
The game will kickoff at 7 p.m. and broadcast on the radio on KHLL 100.9 FM.
