LaFayette Ramblers

The LaFayette had six turnovers at home against Armuchee on Friday night, all fumbles.

The defense, however, refused to let that become a problem.

Spurred by their defense, the Ramblers were able to hold down the Indians and pick up their first win of the new season, 14-8, at Jack King Stadium.

"The defense was mind-boggling," head coach Chad Fisher said. "They really played out of their minds."

Jonah Hobbs had eight tackles to lead the way, while Tyler Beard blocked a punt, added four tackles and recorded a sack. Vyshonn Daniel recovered a pair of Armuchee fumbles, while Dakota Cathey picked off a pass and broke up another one.

The offense was provided by an 18-yard TD pass from Ty Fisher to Landon Rayburn in the first quarter and a 12-yard run by Cathey in the third.

The Indians would get on the board on the first play of the fourth quarter, but the Orange-and-Black put the clamps on the rest of the way.

Cathey led the ground game with 85 yards on 17 carries, while Alan Hu had 36 tough yards on 12 attempts. Fisher was 4-of-8 in the air for 38 yards.

LaFayette will hit the road next Friday as they travel south to Trion to take on the Bulldogs at Sam R. McCain Stadium.
