LCA Football

LCA players run through the banner before its Week 1 Matchup with Providence Christian on Sept. 4 2020.

LOCUST GROVE — Strong Rock Christian was just too strong Friday night.

The Patriots defeated Loganville Christian 38-14 on Friday night in a nonregion high school football game.

The visiting Lions actually led in the beginning. Loganville Christian got on the board with a 27-yard touchdown pass to Hunter Hampton from Brent Taylor late in the first quarter.

But in the first minute of the second, a short touchdown run by Strong Rock tied it at 7.

On an LCA punt attempt, the snap sailed over the kicker’s head. Strong Rock recovered at the 5-yard line and two plays later scored from the 3.

Another Lion miscue, a pass interference penalty, set Strong Rock up at the 6 in the final seconds of the first half. The Patriots capitalized and led 21-7 at the break.

Strong Rock drove 90 yards to start the second half and scored.

LCA tried to make some magic with a fake field goal attempt, but did score early in the fourth with Taylor’s 56-yard strike to Hampton. Carter Smith kicked it to 28-14.

Strong Rock (3-0) added two late scores to seal the victory.

LCA (1-1) plays at Holy Innocents’ on Oct. 2.
