WEEK 1 WEST MONROE 28 LEESVILLE 7

West Monroe 28 vs Leesville 7

West Monroe started out great scoring early and taking a 14-0

lead, but costly mental errors kept Leesville close.

LaDarius Abrams had 3 tds and rushed for 158 yards.

Eric Talton pounded out some yardage of his own and ended the night with

85 yards. D.J Banks will be a force once he settles down a little

bit. He made some great reads and was 5 for 10 passing, but he can

get better. He connected with Joel Barfield for a 40 yard pass,

but overthrew some receivers that we open. Once D.J. settles in

with this offense, we will have a shot at another title.

We gave Leesville many second chances because of costly penalties.

Between the pass interference calls and the jumping offsides on

3rd down possessions, Leesville was able to have a shot to keep it close.

Leesville had 338 yards total offense to West Monroe's 328.

On the DeFensive side of the ball, the Rebels kept Michael Ford

contained until he broke a 90 yard run in the 2nd half.

The td was saved by Tyler Glynn who pushed him out at the 5 yard line.

With the score 14-7 and Leesville having a chance to tie the game,

David Eley recover a fumble and raced 88 yards for a DeFensive td

for the Rebels. Leesville should have a great season with all of the talent

they have. The Rebels need to work out some flaws on needless metal

mistakes and they will be fine.
