The Kittens of Grambling High School took on the Eagles of Ouachita Christian School in a 50-0 loss on Friday night on their Homecoming. The game itself capped off a weeklong Homecoming celebration. The first quarter was kicked off by a touchdown in the first 30 seconds by OCS and from here was downhill for the Kittens.
The interception of GHS quarterback Darius Livingston was ran back and eventually resulted in a touchdown by the Eagles which boosted OCS’s score to 24-0 at the end of the first quarter.
In the second quarter, things began to look up for the Kitten with a fumble recovery by # 16, Cedric Thomas. But it was only 2 minutes later that OCS got the ball back and scored which made the 38-0. The Kittens kicked the ball away, and with 5 minutes left on the clock the Eagles marched down the field and laid another blow to the Kittens.
The end of the third quarter, the score was 44-0, with OCS on top. The Kittens had one last breathe and a quarterback switch before the game was over, but it would not be enough for a win, 50-0 was the final score.
At the end of the game, Coach Dorsey said, “On offense, we could have sustained more drives and ran the ball harder. Defensively, we could have made more plays.”
Junior quarterback Darius Livingston looked down but not out, after the game. “We need to still play hard throughout the year. We need to hold our heads up and bounce back for the next game.”
If you would like to support the GHS Kittens, their next game is a home game, Thursday, against the Hornets of Arcadia High School at Robinson Stadium, providing the good weather, if not the game will held in Arcadia.
