Not many teams survive a “track meet” style football game with Lutcher, and it turned out on Friday night that Warren Easton was no different.

Lutcher once again looked unstoppable offensively in securing a 69-37 win at home. But for awhile, the Eagles gave the top ranked team in Class 4A all it could handle.

“They score, we score, it was back and forth almost like a tennis match,” said Lutcher coach Tim Detillier. “It wasn’t our finest performance. But in the end, we answered the call and got the win, like good teams do.”

Warren Easton (1-3) had leads on 19-14 and 25-19 in the first half before two LHS scores in the last 2:34 of the second quarter lifted the Bulldogs (4-0) to a 10-point lead.

Lutcher retained a double figure lead for the rest of the game, but never truly shook the Eagle threat until the fourth quarter, where three unanswered Bulldogs scores put a comeback effort out of reach.

“When we crossed the 60 point mark, we breathed a little sigh of relief,” said Detillier.

A week after blistering Hahnville for 304 yards and five touchdowns on the ground last week, Webster accounted for seven touchdowns against the Eagles.

He completed 15-of-28 passes for 276 yards and five touchdowns, and added 54 yards and two scores on six rushing attempts.

Jarvis Landry was again his favorite receiver, catching eight passes for 114 yards and three scores.

Trevor Englade added a pair of receiving touchdowns. Daniel Taylor rushed for 145 yards and two scores on 19 carries.

The teams combined for 1,014 yards of total offense, with Warren Easton gaining 515 of those.

“We have to play better defensively. But as I said, they have some fine athletes,” said Detillier.
