WHITE CASTLE — West St. John’s Rams thundered into town and rode away again, toting a 44-2 victory over White Castle Friday night.

In the first quarter, Devon Bartholomew scored on a five-yard run to open up the bloodbath. The PAT conversion run fell short.

In the second period, Javon Howard opened up the big guns, and he scored on a 90-yard run. The two-point conversion pass from Olajuwon Hall to Devone Lumar was good, and the Rams were up 14-0.

Lumar was just limbering up, though, and scored later in the second on a seven-yard pass reception from Hall. Bartholomew scored on the two-point conversion pass to make the half-time tally 22-0.

In the third quarter, Tiarus Jenkins put his six points on the board, from a 48-yard pass from Hall. The two-point conversion run by Bartholomew made it 30-0.

West St. John then scored a two-point safety, as White Castle snapped the ball through the end zone, which pushed the score to 32-0.

Bartholomew then scored in the fourth quarter on a 14-yard run, which nudged the blowout to 38-0.

Finally, however, White Castle avoided the shutout, as Dray Joseph tacked Hall in the end zone, making it 38-2.

And West St. John capped off the evening with Donovan Dorsey scoring on a 20-yard run off a fumble recovery. The two-point conversion run failed, but the Rams were comfortable with a 44-2 victory.

Howard finished his evening with six carries for 130 yards and one touchdown. Bartholomew carried 10 times for 78 yards and two TDs. Hall was 5 for 11, 96 yards, one interception and two TDs.

West St. John also dominated in the statistics, 10-5 on first downs, 191 to 46 yards rushing, and 96 to 50 yards passing.

Next week, West St. John (1-4) travels to St. John in Plaquemine.
