GLEN --The Booneville Blue Devils racked up 341 total yards and scored six offensive touchdowns Friday night against Alcorn Central, as they improved their record to 5-1 overall and 1-0 in Division 1-3A play with a 49-0 win.

Booneville will host North Pontotoc next week and look to push its winning streak to four, with their only loss coming to the Corinth Warriors in week three of the season.

On the second play of the game, Dejesuse “Zeus” Rogers broke off a 65 yard jaunt into the end zone putting his team up 7-0 at the 11:41 mark of the first quarter. A minute and a half later, the junior intercepted a pass from Alcorn Central quarterback Josh Berry and took it to the house to put them up 14-0 in the opening quarter.

On Central's next drive, Blue Devil junior defensive back Andrew Lambert snatched another Berry pass out of the air and made it all the way to the one yard line. Two plays later, Lambert punched it in leaving the score at 21-0 with 9:02 left in the first period.

The visiting Blue Devils didn't stop there. After a fake punt run by Lambert kept their third drive alive, junior QB, Jack Simpson rocketed a 40 yard touchdown pass to Chase Calvery on second and ten, pushing the lead to 28.

As the second quarter started and as Central continued to sputter on offense, the Blue Devils came back out gunning. On second and two from their own 47, Calvery lofted a pass to a wide open Lambert for the score at the 11:44 mark in the second period, elevating the lead to 35-0.

After another failed drive by the Golden Bears, the Blue Devils took the ball at their own 38. Following a couple short runs and a holding penalty that pushed them back to the 40, sophomore Elijah Tate, took it 60 yards into the end zone extending the already huge lead to 42-0.

Alcorn Central showed a glimpse of hope as they got the ball with a short field ahead of them. Making it all the way to Booneville's 5 yard line, the Golden Bears just couldn't make it happen. The Blue Devil defensive line held strong and kept them from getting it across the goal line.

As the second half began the second team and practice squads came out and Booneville only managed to get one more score from at the 7:15 mark of the fourth quarter from junior James Christain on a three yard punch straight up the middle.

The Golden Bears take their talents to Mooreville next week as they look to improve their 2-5 record.
