Story by Lance Cpl. Justin Rodriguez
MARINE CORPS BASE CAMP LEJEUNE, N.C. - The Lejeune High School varsity football team utilized their ground game and ran circles around the Rosewood High School Eagles, claiming a 42-12 victory aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, Sept. 13.
Senior Jamaz Richardson, the Devilpups’ running back, scored four touchdowns with a total of 173 rushing yards.
During the first quarter, Lejeune rushed through Rosewood for two touchdowns, setting the pace for the game.
“Everyone did their job,” said Richardson. “During the game, I let my blockers pave the way, and I executed on the play.”
During the second quarter, the Eagles fought back and scored two touchdowns early on, but eventually gave up four touchdowns to the Devilpups.
With hopes of closing the gap, Rosewood started passing the ball. Their plan was foiled when Lejeune’s defense intercepted a pass and returned it for a touchdown.
“We worked hard all week during practice and came out with great discipline,” said Darryl Schwartz, Lejeune Devil Pups coach. “That’s why we won this game.”
The Devilpups scored one more touchdown in the third quarter and ended the game with 42 points, while Rosewood came up short with only 12 points on the board.
Each athlete played an important role throughout the game, said Schwartz. They did their job and executed plays, he added.
The Rosewood rundown advanced Lejeune to a 3-1 season record. The Devilpups are slated for a 7 p.m. game against Dixon High School in Holly Ridge, tomorrow.
