Franklinton’s Demons traveled to Metairie to face Riverdale in the teams’ spring games at Joe Yenni Stadium on Thursday, May 16.
The teams ran series of plays with the first and second stringers before capping it off with a pair of 10-minute periods.
“I thought physically, we dominated,” Franklinton coach Jonathan Barber said. “We were the stronger team. We had a lot of success offensively and defensively. We ran the ball extremely well. Our passing game and our secondary are not quite where we need them to be, but we’ll improve those during 7-on-7s this summer.”
The Demons won the series of plays 14-6 and the timed portion, 7-0.

Franklinton’s Jasper LaSalle prepares to throw a pass during a game last season. LaSalle completed a 65-yard touchdown pass to Shimon Davis in last week’s spring game against Riverdale.

Mike Martin scored two touchdowns on a pair of runs. One was from five yards out and the other came from inside the 5.
Shimon Davis caught a 65-yard touchdown pass from Jasper LaSalle.

Defensively, Lamar Gray intercepted two passes.
Keaton Catrett made all three extra points.
