CINCINNATI - It will go down as a night to remember for La Salle as they routed Oak Hills in their 2013 opener in the Crosstown Showdown. Head coach Nate Moore got his first win as head coach of the Lancers. He saw his team get stronger as the night wore on.
Sophomore quarterback Nick Watson threw for 226 yards with five touchdown passes to four different receivers – Jeremy Larkin, Derek Kief, Morgan Wilcox and Kevin Ferguson. Wilcox had career highs with six receptions and 106 yards receiving. Larkin had a personal best three touchdowns (two receiving and one rushing).
The La Salle (1-0) defense started off sluggish giving up 132 yards on 23 plays and two touchdowns to Oak Hills (0-1) on their first two possessions. That is where all the fun would stop for the Highlanders.
The Lancers would hold OHHS to 13 yards or fewer on eight of their final nine drives. Four times they gave up negative yardage on drives and seven or fewer on three others. None of those drives lasted longer than three minutes. La Salle recorded 5.0 sacks and had nine tackles for losses.
La Salle heads out west for an interstate matchup with East Central (0-1). Oak Hills will play just down the road from them at Harrison.
