An early-season clash of district contenders turned into a blowout.
Winona Christian racked up 501 yards of total offense and scored 27 unanswered points in the second half to run away with a 53-19 win on Friday night.
For the second straight week, the Central Holmes Trojans flexed their muscles on Friday night. The Trojans scored early and often as they beat Ethel 42-7.
The Trojans are now 2-1 on the season and have won two straight after losing to Park Place to open the season.
After a loss in week one of the season to Park Place, Central Holmes football coach Jim Crowder was trying to find what his team did best.
It seems he found the solution.
Winona Christian football coach Junior Graham knew his team was going into last week’s game with French Camp blind since the Panthers didn’t play any pre-season games.
That was a blessing and a curse for the Stars.
It was a mixed bag of results for Central Holmes last week on the softball diamond. The Lady Trojans lost a key division game to Winona Christian, falling 9-8, but then bounced back and beat the Lady Stars 7-5 in a non-division contest at the Bayou Tournament.
Friday night’s season opener against Park Place was not the start that second-year Central Holmes Christian School head football coach Jim Crowder was hoping for.
