Tigers Defeat Menard in Homecoming Game

Tigers Defeat Menard in Homecoming Game

Winnfield Tiger running back Keithan Hamilton (2) waits on the block of Micha Gardner (72) to make his cut. The Tigers claimed an 11-6 victory over the visiting Menard Eagles to run their record to 4-3 on the year. WHS running backs gained 233 yards on the ground against the Eagles. This Friday the Tigers travel to Bunkie to take on the Panthers.

The Winnfield Tigers stopped a three game losing skid Friday night with an 11-6 victory over Holy Savior Menard High School of Alexandria at Stokes Walker Stadium.

The Tigers, now 4-3 on the year, had over 300 yards of offense on the night they celebrated Homecoming.

Led by senior running back Dyllan Lawson and junior Malachi Jackson, the duo rushed for 233 of the 293 yards gained on the ground. Ironically, neither of the leading rushers found the endzone for the Tigers.

Finding themselves down 6-0, after Menard scored on a 35-yard TD pass, the Tigers’ defense shut down Menard for the rest of the game.

Winnfield had a touchdown run from one yard out by senior running back Travon Nichols. That knotted the score at 6-6 after the PAT failed.

The Tiger defense got a safety against Menard and two points courtesy of a tackle in the endzone by junior Alex Adams.

Football contest winners announced

A frequent winner in the weekly Football picking contest has claimed top prize in last week’s prognostications with only two misses from the 15 game slate.

Rodney Alderman missed only the Northwestern State win over Houston Baptist and the Boise State victory over BYU. A typo game everyone a free game in the SMU vs. Navy contest. We accidentally listed the game as LSU vs. Navy. LSU actually lost to Kentucky.

Alderman also came to closest to the actual score in the Many vs. Winnfield contest. Many shut out the hometown Tigers 50-0. Alderman picked a final score of Many 48 and Winnfield 6. He was off just eight points of the actual score.

Second place honors for the week went to Johnny Mills with only three misses. He got all the games correct except for the Oklahoma win over Texas, the Notre Dame win over Virginia Tech and the Boise State win over BYU.

Finishing in third place for the week was Louis Bell Jr. He had just four misses in his predictions.

The defending State 2A champions Many High School handed the Winnfield Tigers their first shutout of the season with a 50-0 lashing in Many last Friday night.

Currently ranked No. 2 in the state, the Tigers of Many held Winnfield’s squad to under 100 yards of total offense. The Winnfield offense could muster only 45 yards rushing and 37 yards passing during the outing.

Many is now undefeated in District play, while Winnfield is 0-3 in league action.

All of the Many touchdowns were runs; the longest was a 55-yard romp for their last touchdown of the night. The Sabine Parish School, which has become a football dynasty, had scores of 5, 16, 32, 22, 4, 4 and 55 yards.

The leading Winnfield rusher was Travon Nichols with five carries for 18 yards.

Quarterback Malachi Jackson was two of four passes for 37 yards. Both receptions were by Damascus Lewis.

Weston Baseball team featured on KTVE

Talk about having a dream come true. There is not a baseball player who has ever laced up his “spikes” that hasn’t dreamed of playing on a major leaguer field. This coming spring, the coaching staff and players of the Weston baseball team will get to live that dream.

Better yet, they will get to play on the iconic “Field of Dreams” made famous by the 1989 blockbuster movie of the same name starring Kevin Costner and where the New York Yankees and Chicago White Sox played this past August. Future games are scheduled as well, including next season when the Chicago Cubs will play the Cincinnati Reds, all part of major league baseball’s “Go the Distance” program designed to increase the opportunities and interest of young players.

In an interview with KTVE – Channel 10, sports director Chris Demardjian, first year Weston head coach Joey Kemp and several players spoke about the “once in a lifetime” opportunity.

The victory over Dehli Charter was hard fought in a night filled with mud and impressive hard nose football by the WSHS Tigers

The Winnfield Senior High School Football team got down and dirty in a muddy game this weekend and defeated Dehli Charter 24-8 to stay undefeated this season.

The name of the game on offense again was the WSHS rushing attack.

Quarterback Malachi Jackson completed 0 passes on the night, but ran for 77 yards and one touchdown for 55 yards, while also adding a run for a two point conversion.

Dyllan Lawson was the rushing leader of the running back room putting up 52 yards and a 36 yard touchdown.

Micah Simmons scored the third touchdown on a 9 yard touchdown, and totaled 28 yards for the night.

While the mud didn’t slow down WSHS, Dehli Charter got stuck in it with the defense only allowing 8 points to be scored on them.

Keithan Hamilton recovered two fumbles, one on a kickoff return that was botched by Dehli Charter, and the fumbles didn’t stop there.
