Titans flex muscles in District 1-2A romp over Lakeside

JOURNAL STAFF

SIBLEY — The North Caddo Titans got back to their winning ways, bouncing back from a big-game loss and scoring a season-high in a 68-25 district romp at Lakeside Friday night.

North Caddo (5-2, 1-1 District 1-2A) recovered from the disappointment of last week’s league loss to Calvary Baptist by rolling on offense – once the Titans finally got the ball. 

Lakeside (4-3, 0-2) marched on a clock-milking scoring drive to start the game, and the Warriors were knocking on the door a second time after North Caddo fumbled the kickoff. 

But the Titans made a goal line stand on the 1-yard line, then the offense launched a 99-yard scoring drive to capture the momentum and never let it go. 

“Lakeside had a good plan coming in . . . and we made a huge defensive stand that allowed us to really catch our breath there early,” said North Caddo coach JJ Kavanaugh. “We shook off the sluggish start, and our playmakers made plays. 

“We never punted on offense after we finally got the ball with four minutes left in the first quarter. We did have two turnovers, but we did what we needed to do.” 

Titans who frequented the end zone included KJ Black, Omarion Miller and J’Quay Vinson, who all had multiple touchdowns. Quarterback Mason Jackson tossed five touchdowns in the 43-point victory.
