North Webster improved to 5-4 with a dominant defensive effort, stifling Bastrop all night and scoring three defensive touchdowns to lift the Knights over the Rams 32-14.
The star of the game was senior Xavier McGlothan. McGlothan threw for a touchdown, ran for a touchdown and had two pick six’s in one of the area’s most eye-popping efforts of the season.
The Knights defense also had a scoop and score touchdown by senior Avante Curry, while Kemaurion Jefferson caught his first touchdown of the season from McGlothan.
Both Bastrop scores came after the North Webster first-team defense had left the contest.
North Webster will look to secure a winning record and a home playoff game next week as they host Lafayette Renaissance Charter for senior night at Baucum-Farrar Stadium.
