    The Chiefs went on the road looking for their
    second district win in a row against the Ouachita
    Lions.
    A win Friday night would allow the Chiefs to
    control their own destiny for a playoff berth. Both
    teams were coming off a 1-1 record in District 2-5A
    race, so a win here would be crucial for either team.
    After receiving the opening kickoff, the Chiefs would
    march 69-yards down the field using a mixture of
    run and pass plays. This combination would help keep
    the Lions off balance. On the fourth play from
    scrimmage the Chiefs’ Trey Solitaire would find the
    end zone on a go-ahead touchdown pass from Jaylin
    White. Dylan Price would add the extra point putting
    the Chiefs on the score board 7-0 with 9:45 left in
    the 1st quarter.
    The Lions would answer immediately on their opening drive.
    Jabari Johnson would deliver a 69-yard passing touchdown to Josh Newton and
    extra point kick by Christian Kukal to tie the score 7-7 with 8:08 left in the 1st
    quarter.
    The Chiefs’ offense would take the field for their second possession of the game but after a quick three and out the Chiefs were forced to punt the ball away to
    Ouachita. It would take the Lions seven plays to score again with Dylan Roberts capping off the drive with a 17-yard touchdown run and extra point kick
    by Kukal, putting the Lions in front 14-7.
    The Lions would go on a tear, scoring 6 unanswered touchdowns making the score 54-7 in favor of the Lions. Unfortunately, the Chiefs last scoring drive
    was a 1-yard touchdown run by Jaylin White and extra point kick by Dylan Price made the score 54-17 in favor of Ouachita in the 4th quarter
    with 7:03 left in the game.
    Neither team would score again, making the final score Lions 54
    Chiefs 14.
    The Chiefs had many bright spots to build on for next week against the Ruston Bearcats.
    Jaylan White led in passing with 12 attempts and 6 completions for a total of 110 passing yards. Trey Solitaire led in receiving with 3 receptions for a total
    of 85-yards. Jeremiah Aaron had 2 catches totaling 17-yards and Nick Ficklin had 1 catch for 8-yards.
    In the rushing department the Chiefs accounted for a total of 223 rushing yards led by Josh Fortenberry with 21 carries for 177 yards. Jaylan White rushed 12 times for 83-yards, Trey Solitaire rushed 4 times for 21-yards and Jeremiah Aaron rushed 3 times for
    18-yards.
