The Covenant Christian Academy Lions rolled past the Hamilton Christian Warriors 50-0 in nondistrict action from John L. Guidry Stadium in Thibodaux on Friday night.

The Lions improved to 3-0 overall and Hamilton, from Lake Charles, dropped to 0-2 overall.

Covenant Christian ran out to an early lead by scoring on its first offensive play when Channing Holloway ran up the middle for a 54-yard score.

The Lions got the ball right back and it didn’t take long for them to punch it in again. This time Devante’ Johnson scored from 27 yards out with 7:18 remaining in the first quarter.

"It’s a journey that we’re on, and we challenged the kids at the beginning of the game to continue to make strides and improvements early in games,” CCA coach Randy Boquet said. “Wehave done that each week we’ve played.”

After an offensive pass interference penalty wiped out a Warriors score, the Lions went back to work with an end around by Johnson that led to a 75 yard-score and his second touchdown of the game.

“They've got a great team," Hamilton coach Vaughn Eggleston said. "Their coaches do a great job and it’s a great atmosphere for football. We have a little ways to go and were missing some starters so that didn’t help our chances."

The Lions picked up their third score of the game when they converted on a 2nd-and-40 from their own 10-yard line.

Holloway got free up the middle for a 90-yard touchdown run with 26 seconds left before half giving the Lions a 27-0 lead at halftime.

On the first drive of the second half Covenant Christian was setup with a 50-yard return by Caleb Wilson.

Two plays later Wilson scored on an end around from 25 yards out to give the Lions a 34-0 lead with 9:02 left in the third quarter.

After a Hamilton punt attempt sailed 10 yards down the field, Holloway scooped it up and fought through a Warriors defender, who was called for a facemask, and scored from 18 yards out.

The extra point was good by Austin Champagne extending the Lions lead to 41-0 with 6:50 remaining in the game.

The Lions tacked on another touchdown in the fourth quarter when Hollloway scored on an 8-yard touchdown run.

To seal the game defensive lineman Deandre Williams picked up a safety to give the Lions the 50-0 win.

“We saw some kids get better and get more confident. We want to see more improvement moving forward into next week and I believe we will do that," Boquet said.

Holloway finished the game with three carries for 152 yards and three touchdowns while also adding a touchdown on special teams. Johnson also added 140 yards rushing on six carries and two touchdowns.
