SPRINGHILL – For North Webster High School head coach John Ware it was business as usual for his defense, as they held Mansfield scoreless in front of a large, home crowd on their way to a 33-0.
It was an important district natch up for the Knights, who are now5-3 overall and 2-1 in district play.
“This was a great win for us against a very good Mansfield team,” Ware said via the Shreveport Times. “We were coming off an emotional game, but we took care of business.”
Key in the Knights’ win was the always impressive Devin White, who carried 17 times for North Webster on his way to 143 yards and three touchdowns.
White also stepped up on the defensive side of the ball, picking off a Mansfield pass from his linebacker position.
North Webster also got big games from senior, Lyntravious Gipson, who ran for a 37 yard score. Jalen Smith got in on the action himself with 91 yards rushing and junior, Conroe McMullan, nailed two field goals. The first came from 25 yards out and the second from 32, giving the kicker a night to be proud of.
The Knights (5-3) will now prepare for their challenge against Green Oaks (Shreveport). The Giants come into the 3A District 1 challenge with a 2-6 record.
That matchup will take place at Green Oaks Friday night at 7 p.m.
