Lone Grove put points on the board the first three times they touched the football Thursday night and went on to take a 21-7 win over the Ardmore JV Tigers in action played during the Super Scrimmage.

The Longhorn offense struck for seven first downs and 202 yards of offense. The Tiger JV squad had 81 offensive yards and two first downs, but 70 of those yards and both first downs came on their initial possession. After that, the Longhorn defense forced three Tiger punts.

Hunter Bellavigna broke free on a long run that took the Longhorns to the Tiger 28-yard line in their first possession. Two plays later, Dylan Baker took the ball around left end 22 yards for a Lone Grove touchdown.

The Tigers needed seven plays to knot the score. With freshman quarterback Jerrad Hall doing most of the work, the JV scored when Hall skirted left end and rushed three yards for the score.

The Longhorns needed eight yards to go on top for good when quarterback Jacob McClennahan hit Akari Tucker with a 3-yard scoring toss. Following a Tiger punt, a 60-yard gallop by McClennahan moved the ball to the JV 2-yard line. Two plays later McClennahan scored from a yard out.

“Our defense had to make some adjustments after they moved the ball so well in their first possession,” Lone Grove coach Kenny Ridley said. “They shut things down and covered the perimeter much better after that. Dylan put some distance between him and some of the other running backs with his performance, and I was especially pleased with the way our offensive line played. It was a good scrimmage for us.”
