Locust Grove throttles Lincoln Christian, 80-41


Locust Grove captured its first district title in 21 years Friday night, crushing Lincoln Christian 80-41 on senior night to improve to 9-0.
“(Being district champions) sounds pretty good. These kids just played their tails off and that’s kind of been our deal all year. Just play hard and play hard and play hard, and it pays off,” LG head coach Matt Hennesy said.
In 1992, running back Jeremy Hooker led the Pirates to a district championship. The 2013 Pirates are carried by senior running back Cory Rohde. Rohde has rushed for at least 100 yards in five straight games. Rohde left the Pirate fans in awe Friday night tallying up 424 total yards and seven rushing touchdowns, including 397 yards on the ground.
“I could have got three more yards to get the 400 yards, but it’s alright,” Rohde said of his rushing performance.
The apple must not fall too far from the tree in the player-coach logic for head coach Matt Hennesy and his top offensive weapon.
“He should have got three more yards,” Hennesy laughingly said of Rohde’s night. “He’s such a tough kid and we know it ... We were actually able to rest him just a little bit on defense, but he plays defense all the time too. He’s a tough kid and it’s just the things he does, the things [quarterback] Mason [Fine] did tonight, the whole team just played well. Our whole offense was clicking all night.”
The Locust Grove offense put up obscene numbers, producing 707 yards and finding the end zone on 10 occasions. Thirty-four of the offense’s points came in the first 12 minutes, but the Pirates led Lincoln Christian by just 14 after the first quarter.
The Legion of Doom shut out the Bulldogs in the second quarter, however, and Locust cruised into the locker room with a 56-20 lead.
