LAFAYETTE — Sage Ryan’s touchdown run in the first quarter, the only score of the game, was enough as Lafayette Christian held off Westgate’s explosive offense to give the Knights a 7-0 non-district win in the season opener for both teams Friday.
In what turned out to be a defensive affair, the Knights held Westgate to less that 110 yards of total offense, only 40 offensive yard in the second half, as LCA, the two-time defending Division IV state champions, opened the season 1-0 and won its 21st consecutive game.
Westgate fell to 0-1 as the Tigers head to Houma next week to face Vandebilt Catholic.

PATTERSON — Taylun Druilhet completed 14-of-38 passes for 270 yards with a touchdown pass and three interceptions as West St. Mary kept it close but fell to Patterson 14-12 Friday in a non-district game.
