Liberty Christian starts fast and closes the deal in 39-6 win

Liberty University, Lynchburg Va. – It’s not often that many high school teams get to play in as nice of a stadium as where the Lynchburg Flames play. But that’s the case when you take on Liberty Christian at home. The only problem for visitors is that more times than not, Coach Frank Rocco’s Bulldogs play pretty darn well there. That was the case again as the Jamar Lovelace led Colonels found themselves in a hornet’s nest on Saturday night. The Bulldog’s welcomed the Colonels to Lynchburg with a 92-yard opening kickoff return for a touchdown by the electric WR/DB 1 Jaylin Belford.

The Junior took it down the right has, bounced in outside and across the field at the Fleming forty and it was footrace from there. Sixteen seconds in. K/RB/LB 10 Caleb Davidson added the point after and and it was 7-0 LCA. At the end of the night, Liberty Christian beat the Colonels 39-6.

First Quarter
Coach Lovelace’s troops settled down a little after the opening fireworks and actually looked pretty good on their first drive. But the Bulldog defense finally stopped the visitors near midfield and forced a punt. It looked like Liberty Christian would add to their lead on their first drive of the night as well. The Bulldogs drove the ball nearly the length of the field. Only an interception at the goal line of QB 7 Davis Lane by DB/QB 2 Dashawn Lewis ended the threat.

Fleming would struggle to move the ball out of the shadow of their own goal post. Forced to punt, RB/LB 5 Deuce Anderson was roughed on the punt and Fleming had knew life. That high wouldn’t last long as the Bulldog defense, would get the ball back. QB 2 Lewis threw an ill advised out near the Colonel forty and DB 2 Lantz Sears picked it off and returned it down to the two before being hauled down.

A marquee matchup on the night was with the ‘big’s. LCA OL/DL 50 Zach Rice and Fleming OL/DL 77 Tyriq Poindexter square off

Second Quarter
RB 10 Davidson burst through the middle of the line on first down for the 2-yard score. Davidson’s point after was wide left. LCA led 13-0 at the 10:14 mark. Liberty would add another touchdown just before half. The Bulldogs forced a Fleming punt and took over at the LCA forty-four. It took seven plays for Liberty to get six more on the board. The last toss was a well designed pass play from QB 7 Lane to TE 18 Dillon Stowers. The wideout ran a post over the middle and Stowers cut off his back to the corner pilon. The perfect throw from Lane made the catch and run of a couple yards an easy score. The heartbreaking part for the Colonels is that it came with only :04 left on the clock.

Third Quarter
The beginning of the second half can sometimes offer up a new beginning, but even though Fleming got the ball to start the second half, their luck didn’t change. After a four and out series, LCA got a blocked punt this time without roughing the punter. After recovering the ball at the Fleming three, RB/LB 26 Cade Wycoff took it in straight up the middle. The extra point was wide again and LCA’s lead was 25-0. Fleming’s fate this night went from bad to worse when QB 2 Lewis was intercepted again by LB 26 Cade Wycoff. This was a play of plays as the outside linebacker, blitzing on the play leapt high into the air and snatched the ball ball like it was meant for him. RB 10 Davidson wasted no time getting into the endzone. On the very next play, he scampered twenty seven yards for the score. This time he finished off the scoring play as he made the extra point. LCA was now up 32-0.

Fleming would finally dent the scoreboard on a 30-yard QB 2 Lewis run right up the gut. Once the Junior cleared the line of scrimmage it was six points. The two point try to the corner of the endzone was incomplete. LCA was up 32-6. Liberty added one more touchdown to round out the scoring on the night at the end of the third quarter. RB 26 Wycoff took it in from eleven yards out finishing off a 77-yard, 11 play series with 1:13 left in the third.
