Lassiter Routs Cherokee

Lassiter lives up to its state ranking and proves to be too much for the young Cherokee Warriors.

Lassiter High wasted no time scoring in Friday night's 41-6 victory over Cherokee High.

Barely two minutes off the clock, Willie Police (No. 5) rushed for a touchdown and Lassiter successfully went for a 2-point conversion.   

Cherokee's first two possessions ended in fumbles. Lassiter used both turnovers to convert two field goals to push the lead to 14-0 at the end of the first quarter.

The second quarter saw Lassiter add another touchdown when Duby Nwaubi (3) caught a pass from Eddie Printz (7). Down 21-0, Cherokee got on the board with six minutes left in the first half. Andrew Harris (10) hauled in a pass from Spencer Ashley (4). Cherokee missed the point after attempt. And Lassiter's Printz closed the first half with a QB keeper on fourth down to make the score 27-6.

In the second half, Lassiter added another rushing touchdown, this time from Hakim Shahid (1). The rout finished when Police ran for his second score of the evening.

Lassiter (4-0) plays Woodstock (0-4) next Friday night. Cherokee (1-3) will travel to Walton (3-1).
