Bogalusa eighth grader Talik Williams scored a “walk-off touchdown” in an 18-12 overtime victory over Loranger in a District 7-3A road game Friday.
The teams were tied, 12-12, at the end of regulation.
In overtime, each team gets a possession beginning with first-and-goal from their opponents’ 10. If the game is still tied after the first possession, the game goes on until someone wins.
Bogalusa won the toss and chose defense.
The unit pushed Loranger back to the 18 and held the Wolves on fourth down.
Williams got the ball on the first two plays and moved the ball to the 3. The third time was the charm and Williams scored the touchdown to end the game.
“Talik’s got a bright future,” Bogalusa coach Adam Brumfield said. “He’s a good kid. He does what we tell him to do. He’s got some incredible vision between the tackles. That’s sometimes hard for us coaches to teach. It’s kind of one of those things that either you have it or you don’t, and he does.”
Williams ran six times for 20 yards and a touchdow==n.
Josh Taylor threw for 177 yards and ran for 41 yards and a touchdown.
Chas Smith caught nine passes for 93 yards. He also rushed for 13 yards.
Jakyris Mclemore had three receptions for 30 yards. He also ran for a touchdown.
Raheem Roberts had a catch for 19 yards. He also intercepted a pass.
Kobe Robertson made a catch for 20 yards.
Terry Burnette recorded a catch for 15 yards.
Defensively, Keltron Harry made 14 tackles, recovered a fumble and posted a sack.
Charles Taylor had 11 stops.
Dre’Toris Mark tallied 10 tackles and a sack.
Clydeterrious Thompson recovered two fumbles.
“Our coaching staff has a phrase we say this year and it’s ‘chopping wood,’” Brumfield said. “Sometimes you’re swinging that ax and you don’t always see the immediate effect that it’s having. You can’t let that deter you. You have to keep chopping and keep grinding, knowing that one day you will reap the benefits from all that hard work.
“Last night was an example of starting to reap the benefits from all that chopping, but we still have a lot more work to do and a lot of things to improve on. It’s not about where we are now it’s about where we want to be in the future, so our team and staff is just going to keep chopping.”
Bogalusa has won three games in a row. The Lumberjacks are 4-3 overall and 2-0 in district play.
Bogalusa is off this week. The Lumberjacks will continue their season on Friday, Oct. 26, when they host Jewel Sumner in their final home game of the regular season.
