Franklinton and Loranger scored two touchdowns each in their spring game that took place at FHS on Friday, May 18.
Jonathan Barber, who was the interim coach at the time of the spring game and is now the head coach, said that he felt the Demons’ level of intensity was good early.
“Our kids were hungry,” Barber said. “Defensively, we forced three three-and-outs in the first series and we forced two turnovers. Overall, I’m pleased with the effort. They did some things offensively we didn’t prepare for, but I thought our D-line adjusted well and prevented the runs from getting to the outside. We got some good things on film.”
Franklinton’s offense went down the field on the first series and scored in 10 plays after running five times and throwing five times.
Teams ran series of plays with first and second stringers. After that, they played a 15-minute quarter.
Terion Partman and Avant Monnie created a turnover each. Partman recovered a fumble and Monnie intercepted a pass.
Barber said that free safety Kian Conerly “erased a few things” in Loranger’s passing and running game.
Offensively, Jasper LaSalle completed nine of his 20 passes for 185 yards and a touchdown.
Lagarian Bell caught five catches for 116 yards.
Damien Ard caught a 25-yard touchdown pass from LaSalle.
Mike Martin had the Demons’ other touchdown and finished with 10 carries for 77 yards in the game.
