Iota’s Tyronne Charlot breaks a big run on a kickoff return Friday during the Bulldogs’ 42-21 victory over Lake Arthur. Charlot had an 81-yard kickoff return for a touchdown in the victory.

Second half surge propels Dogs past Tigers

In a game that featured two 2-0 teams, Iota turned a 21-21 halftime tie into a runaway win, 42-21, thanks to a staunch defense led by the pass rushing of Tayte Langley (2 sacks) and a motivated group of run defenders.
In the first half it was a different story as the scoring went back and forth. If it weren’t for the kick returner Tyrone Charlot, who had an 81-yard kickoff return for a touchdown to go with a 41-yard effort, and a key fourth down stop at their goal line, the Tigers may have taken command.

“We just can’t seem to overcome those bumps we come across during the game,” stated Rayne High Head Coach Curt Ware following Friday’s loss. “We are given opportunities and just can’t take advantage.”
