North Webster got back to winning ways as they hammered St. Mary’s 36-7 on Friday night in Springhill.
The Knights improve to 4-4 on the season and enter district play after one of the tougher schedules in the class.
“It’s good to win obviously, and it has been going from one extreme to the other,” North Webster head coach John Ware said. “Against Airline last week to them this week was two very different experiences.”
Scottie Johnson led the Knights with 102 yards receiving for two touchdowns.
Quarterback Tyrell Markray finished the night with 210 yards passing and four touchdowns.
“We were up 29-0 at halftime,” Ware said. “We ran one possession with the starters in the second half and then we got our young guys out there and took the starters out.”
North Webster’s defensive line came up big for the Knights as they have all season.
“We played well up front as we have been,” Ware said. “We have a lot of experience on our defensive line. Even in games we have lost, our line has done a good job. They’ve been good all year for us.”
Rock Hawthorne had two interceptions for the Knights on defense as well.
Eddie Rollen had 49 yards on six carries. Lorenzo Johnson ran the ball ten times for 38 yards.
North Webster plays host to Green Oaks this Friday in a game that could determine the district champion.
“It’s week nine and we’re playing our first district game,” Ware said. “It’s going to be a huge game. “
