MARIETTA — Loganville Christian Academy improved to 2-0 on the season after the Lions defeated Dominion Christian School 40-0 Friday night.
“We kept it very vanilla tonight. We ran right at (Dominion) and our line did a great job blocking,” head coach André King said. “Running backs did great running the ball and trusting the lineman to make some holes. So all around a good win for us.”
Friday’s contest was a coming out party for freshman Cameron Lifsey who scored four times during the win, accounting for 24 of Loganville Christian’s 40 points.
Lifsey scored the first points of the game in the second quarter to give LCA a 6-0 lead. He followed that up with another score after halftime to put the Lions up 12-0. He scored again in the third, this time followed up with an extra point by Payne Schultz.
Drake Cook scored the Lions’ fourth touchdown, which was once again followed by a Schultz extra point to make the score 26-0.
At the beginning of the fourth quarter Hunter Hampton rushed in for another touchdown to make the score 33-0. The Lions’ final score came off another run by Lifsey.
“Obviously we’re playing with a young bunch this year,” King said of this year’s Lions team.
“Cameron Lifsey, a freshman, scored four times for us. Another freshman, Hunter Hampton, got a lot of reps tonight and scored a touchdown. We just ran the ball really well and just stayed pretty vanilla.
“We’ve got a challenge next week with Augusta Prep coming to the Hawk (Hawkins Field), but we’re looking forward to playing at home.”
