Logan Allen threw five touchdown passes to lead the Plain Dealing Lions to a 48-12 victory over the Lakeside Warriors Friday night in Plain Dealing.
The Lions improved to 2-0. They have now avenged both of their losses to open the season last year.
“I fill a lot better now than I did at this time last year,” Plain Dealing head coach Coy Brotherton said with a laugh.
Allen, who injured his left shoulder in last week’s 34-24 victory over Green Oaks, threw two TD passes to Keldrick Carper, two to Isaac Jacobs and one to Derreon Washington. Carper also returned an interception for a touchdown. Desean Morris scored a rushing TD.
Brotherton said Allen looked a little rusty early in the game.
“I don’t know if it was because he was hurt or because he didn’t get to throw much this week,” Brotherton said. “He was able to have a good game but I think he can get better.”
The Lions held a Lakeside team that scored 59 points on them last season to just two touchdowns and one of those came late in the game.
“The defense played well,” Brotherton said. “We created three turnovers, two fumbles and an interception. We got off the field. At halftime it was 26-0. Very proud of the defense the effort they gave.”
Plain Dealing was up 14-0 before Lakeside ran a play after recovering two onsides kicks and scoring after each one.
The Lions host Benton (1-1), a 22-2 loser to Haughton, this Friday.
