Lawrenceburg (1-0) wasted little time in flexing their offensive muscle as the beat South Dearborn (0-1) in their opener for a second straight season. The Tigers raced out to a 56-0 halftime lead and cruised to a 63-19 romp.
Six of Lawrenceburg’s nine touchdown drives took two less two minutes. Reigning TriStateFootball.com Indiana Offensive Player of the Year, Chad Banschbach finished a very efficient night rushing for five touchdowns and 104 yards on the ground.
In his first varsity start, Sam Fette went 12/19 for 248 yards with scoring tosses of 75 yards to Robbie Jackson and 18 yards to Morgan Baker in the victory. Jackson was a menace as dual threat against the Knights defense racking up 104 yards receiving with 72 more and another score on the ground. Kicker Jake Newman converted all nine of his extra points.
There was some good for South Dearborn as Clay Hensley threw for 105 yards on 4/6 passing, one touchdown pass and had an interception on defense. Tight end Adam Bailey caught four passes for 97 yards. Sophomore, Josh Proctor showed why he is going to be a force for the next three years with 65 yards on seven carries and a score for the Knights.
Lawrenceburg will host Taylor (OH) on Friday night as they look to go 2-0 for the fourth time in the last six years. South Dearborn travels to Madison (IN) who is 1-24 in their last 25 outings.
