Indians lose on the road

-A A +A

Coach Ajay Ulmer was worried about the effect Mayo receiver Jamal Reid would have on Friday night's football game. In Lafayette's 57-22 win over Chiefland, though, the Hornets didn't even deploy Reid until the end of the first quarter, because they already had Alan Driver, Sergio Perez and Shyler Morgan scarfing up yards on the ground.

The Indians suffered a brutal night on offense, laying down only 207 total yards. QB Brent Slaughter struggled under center, though to be fair, he had scant time in the pocket to look for receivers. Stephen Davis led Chiefland rushers with 75 yards on the ground, while Jakarr White scored two touchdowns on gritty late-game running. Zach Tyson ran in the other score for the Indians.

Chiefland's first drive of the night looked promising, as Davis and Tommy Sheffield pounded the ball down inside the Lafayette 15. The first inkling of trouble came when Slaughter was sacked on two straight downs following an incompletion. The Indians turned the ball over on downs at the Lafayette 25, and the Mayo juggernaut started.
