Lutcher quickly went back to work with a run by Johnson up the middle for 6 yards and a pass to Johnson for 23 yards and a first down at the 16-yard line. Ursin took it in from there and Risely St. Germain added the extrapoint to make the score 7-0 Lutcher at the 10:46 mark in the second quarter.

With the ball sitting at the Lutcher 12 and 27 seconds left till the half, Assumption’s Herbert Washington fired a touchdown pass. The extra pointwas missed, leaving the score 7-6 at the half.
