Woodlawn, Episcopal, Southern Lab win big on Thursday night

(WAFB) - Woodlawn's defense scored three touchdowns in the first quarter to rout Tara, while Southern Lab and Episcopal picked up key districts wins in Thursday night prep football action for Week 7.

The Panthers celebrated homecoming with a performance not often seen at any level of football, much less the prep ranks.

The defense didn't just dominate the Trojans, but picked up the first three touchdowns in a matter of minutes!

Woodlawn's Courtland Walker recovered Patrick Arnold's fumble in the end zone for a 21-0 lead. The Panthers also returned two interceptions for touchdowns, and set up a fourth score with a turnover.

Jamari Nelson and the Woodlawn offense finally got on the board in the second quarter, leading 28-0. Nelson found Javin Myers who broke tackles deep into Trojan territory.

Nelson then found Taj Sullivan in the flat, who headed for the end zone and the touchdown to make it 35-0. Woodlawn wound up winning by the final score of 56-0.

The Episcopal Knights, who were tied for a share of the lead in 6-2A, tried to set up a big late-season showdown with Madison Prep by taking care of business against Northeast.

Episcopal's Kade Edenfield threw to David Tatman to move his Knights into scoring position and then got the first score of the night on the quarterback keeper for a 7-0 lead over the Vikings.

Northeast suffered a second quarter turnover on a fumbled handoff, with Howell Eglin coming up with the recovery.

Episcopal couldn't punch it in for a touchdown. However, when they converted a field goal, the Vikings were called for running into the kicker, and with a new set of downs, T.J. Wisham added a second quarter touchdown for a 13-0 lead.

That's all the Knights would need running away with a 30-12 decision over Northeast.

Southern Lab raced out to three early scores against White Castle and then held on to win.

The Kittens' Bladrick Veal found Tevis Abraham for a long touchdown pass to give the Kittens a 22-0 cushion.

And while the Bulldogs pushed across a couple of second half touchdowns, the Kittens held on by the final score of 22-12.
