MARINE CORPS BASE CAMP LEJEUNE, N.C. - Despite the Lejeune Devilpups’ effort, the Plymouth Vikings showed their superior skill and beat the visiting Devilpups during the North Carolina High School Athletic Association East Regional Finals, 50-13, in Plymouth, N.C., Dec. 6.

The Devilpups started off strong with a first quarter touchdown, but could not stop the opposing offense throughout the game.

The Devilpups began the game with a touchdown pass to Alex Ynfante, wide receiver, but couldn’t defend against the unstoppable Vikings.

Throughout the first half, the Vikings pressured Lejeune’s offense and defense, displaying their skillset.

“They played a better game than we did,” said Darryl Schwartz, Lejeune Devilpups’ head coach. “I just want the team to focus on the good things we’ve done this year.”

The Vikings exploded in the second quarter, scoring 20 points.
“Their offense was pushing our team back,” said Jamaz Richardson, Lejeune Devilpup’ Starting running back. “We played a hard game, but it was hard to keep up once they gained momentum.”

Richardson ran a punt return back for a touchdown before the half ended, it was the last points Lejeune put on the score board.

After the first half, the Vikings scored 22 more points, ending the Devilpups’ hopes for the state championship game.

“It’s disappointing,” said Richardson. “But I know we played a hard game.”

The now 13-2 Devilpups ended their season with a disappointing loss, but will continue to work on their weaknesses for next season, said Schwartz.

Lejeune’s Devilpups ended their season as the Coastal Plains Conference Champions, which was a first in the team’s history.
