The Landrum Cardinals put up another set of impressive numbers beating Powdersville 38-14 Friday, Oct. 4 on the road.

Coach Russell Mahaffey said playing well on both sides of the ball was crucial.

“The defense stepped up and did really well containing some offensive talent from Powdersville. Our offense also did well led by Aaron Bryant and Jacob Lanning with a lot of help from Gavin Bishop and JoJo Wilkins. I felt like our offensive and defensive stepped up this week too,” Mahaffey said.

LHS amassed 448 total yards – 297 on the ground and 151 through the air.

Quarterback Aaron Bryant accounted for 194 of those rushing yards and four touchdowns. He completed a 53-yard pass to Jacob Lanning for the team’s fifth touchdown of the night.

Looking at the stats, it’s easy to see how Landrum ran away with the game. Though Powdersville put up the first points of the evening off a 65-yard pass from Jordan Smith to Charqez Daniel in the first quarter, Landrum slammed in 21 points during the second quarter off quarterback keepers by Bryant and Lanning’s 53-yard catch.

The Cardinals would continue its offensive assault, adding 14 additional points in the third quarter and a John Martinez 31-yard field goal in the fourth. The Patriots would add one more touchdown in the fourth to settle the score, 38-14.
