LaMons and Stamper accounted for all six touchdowns in a 41-6 route over the Vikings. Ironically both players scored two offensive touchdowns and one defensive touchdown each. 

 

On the opening series of the game the Vikings running back fumbled the ball and Stamper picked it up and returned 25 yards for a touchdown. He then went on to score two offensive touchdowns on 4 and 10 yard runs.

 

LaMons defensive touchdown came late in the third quarter when he picked off a pass attempt from the Vikings and returned it 59 yards for a pick six. His two offensive touchdowns were on a 4 yard run and an 80 yard run that he kept on a quarterback keeper and just outran the vikings defense. 

 

Rahshan Finished with 228 on 10 Carries, to go along with his three touchdowns. After the game we asked head coach Brendon Ireton what Rahshan means to his team. 

He said ‚ÄúRahshan is our point guard, he makes everyone around him better and the guys around have stepped up and made plays to compliment what he does.¬† Stamper, Moore, Gordon, Maycole and Minor have all made plays to go along with what he does.¬† Our line (Boothe, Hoggard, Glazier, martire, Henly, and Homer) has done a tremendous job learning and buying into our scheme.¬† We are also doing some great things defensively, that allows us to play with confidence on offense.¬† Very proud of all our players and assistant coaches, they have done a great job building something special this season.‚ÄĚ
