Trojans Roll

Byron Milligan rushed for 110 yards against Delhi Charter Friday

Ferriday High finished a perfect 6-0 in District 2-2A with a 60-3 rout of Delhi Charter on Homecoming night.

But Ferriday head coach Stanley Smith was more concerned about 60 yards in penalties, and the fact the Trojans only led 10-3 at the end of the first quarter.

“I hate Homecoming,” Smith said. “We have to get back focused and tighten some things up. I was not happy at all with our execution.”

Delhi Charter moved the ball into Ferriday territory on its first drive before being forced to punt from the Trojan 47-yard line.
