The Lafayette Commodores defense dominated while they beat the Horn Lake Eagles 28-14 Friday night.
With the win, the Commodores improve their 2019 record to 3-0 as the Horn Lake Eagles fell to 1-2.
Lafayette got things going early in the first quarter when Tyler Carmichael-Williams took a quarterback keeper all the way to the house for 6.
Horn Lake would respond back with a touchdown of their own in the second quarter when Nick Frampton connected with Jaylen Lipscomb for a touchdown but the point after was blocked.
Lafayette would take control from their scoring 21 unanswered points.
Randy Anderson would rush for a 6-yard touchdown toward the end of the third quarter and would then punch another one in from 7 yards out in the beginning of the fourth quarter.
The Commodores really cemented things when Mario Wilbourn caused Nick Frampton to fumble the football. Trikyus Woodall would scoop up the fumble and take it all the way back to extend the Commodores lead to 28-6.
Nick Frampton would get in the end zone one more time for the Eagles when he connected with Brian Herd Jr. for a 7-yard touchdown. The two-point attempt following the touchdown was successful and Horn Lake trimmed the lead to 28-14.
Lafayette would continue to play dominant defense and run the clock out to remain unbeaten.
Anderson and Carmichael-Williams were both dominate in the win. The two quarterbacks combined for three of the four touchdowns scored in the game for the Commodores.
Wilbourn and Woodall anchored an outstanding Commodores defense Friday night. Wilbourn led the team in tackles and Woodall scored a touchdown on defense.
The Commodores will be back in action Friday, Sept.13 when they host the Oxford Chargers in the Crosstown Classic.
