Isaiah Brown scored three touchdowns in the first quarter as Calvary Baptist jumped on St. Frederick early en route to 52-12 Division IV first round playoff victory Friday night in Shreveport.
Cameron Thomas returned the opening 34 yards to the St. Frederick 41, and scored from one yard out on the Cavaliers’ fourth offensive play. Cade Hart’s 23-yard pass to Joseph Wilson set up first-and-goal from the 1. Thomas Murray’s extra point brought the score to 7-0.
Calvary’s offense was right back on the field as Cameron Thomas recovered a fumble on the ensuing kickoff at the St. Fred 11.
On fourth-and-six from the 7, Brown rushed for his second touchdown to make it 14-0.
St. Fred made its first offensive play count. Alex Rightsell’s 60-yard touchdown pass to Pat Johnson brought the guests within 14-6.
Any St. Fred’s momentum was abruptly halted as Brown returned the ensuing kickoff 79 yards for his third touchdown.
Following an exchange of punts, the Cavaliers upped their lead to 23-6 on a safety off a high punt snap.
After the free kick, James Mayronne’s interception enabled the Warriors to regain possession at their own 7.
Moments later, Kobe Byrd’s 12-yard scoop and score wrapped up the first quarter scoring with Calvary leading 30-7.
Moving ahead to the second quarter, another safety and a pair of Hart touchdown passes to Jordan Wallace (35 yards) and Kyelor Coburn (33 yards) stretched Calvary’s halftime lead to 46-6.
Coburn added a 50-yard touchdown reception in the third quarter, and St. Frederick’s Michael Thompson wrapped up the scoring with a 16-yard run in the final frame.
Calvary (11-0), the No. 4 seed, advances to host No. 5 Ouachita Christian in Friday night’s quarterfinals.
St. Fred ends its season with a 6-5 worksheet.
