The North Webster High School Knights were at home Friday to take on the Bearkats from Bossier High School.

It didn’t take long before the Bearkats realized the Knights were for real, sending Bossier home with their tail between their legs following a 59-16 victory.

The Knights are now rolling after scoring at least 50 points for the third straight game.

“Evidently we’re executing pretty good right now,” head coach John Ware said. “We’re scoring a lot of points on not so many carries. We’re running basic stuff and executing well and getting big plays.”

Ware credited his offensive line for opening the running lanes for running backs Devin White, Lyntravious Gipson and Jalen Smith.

“They are playing well up front,” Ware said. “We’ve gotten a lot better the past few weeks, but the competition hasn’t been the toughest.”

Defensively the Knights held the Bearkats to just 16 points, with most of those coming after the starters had left the game.

“Those guys are playing really well,” Ware said. “Since the Natchitoches Central game the first team hasn’t given up a touchdown. It’s all about match ups and how the other team is trying to attack you and we’ve had good match ups against these teams. This next one will be tougher.”

Devin White had 103 yards and three touchdowns on six carries, Lyntravious Gipson had 76 yards and two touchdowns on his two carries and Jalen Smith had two carries for 49 yards and two scores.

The Knights will travel to Shreveport next week to take on Evangel.
