North Webster falls on the road to Loyola

The North Webster Knights could not sustain a solid start Friday night against the Loyola Flyers.

The Knights drove down the field and scored with relative ease to open Friday’s District 1-3A clash, but Loyola answered with a kick return for a touchdown and would cruise from that point to a 38-12 win.

The Knights now sit at 3-5 with two games remaining on the regular season slate.

Both of the North Webster touchdowns came courtesy of senior runner Jamarcus Stephens who ran hard behind the North Webster offensive line.

Trailing just 17-6 at the half, the Knights had several chances to keep pace with the potent Loyola combination of wide receiver Tray Taylor and quarterback Jacob Lafitte, but turnovers seemed to follow every time North Webster would enter into Flyer territory.

Taylor finished the night with four touchdowns to lead Loyola.

North Webster will look to keep their playoff hopes alive next week as they travel to face the Mansfield Wolverines.
