LANEY 41, HARLEM 0

PLAY OF THE GAME: With Laney already leading 14-0, running back Javin Myers scored on a 21-yard run with 4:43 remaining in the first quarter.

STAR OF THE GAME: Horatio Keller. Laney’s senior quarterback accounted for three opening-half touchdowns, helping propel the Wildcats to a 34-0 halftime advantage.

WHY LANEY WON: After clinching the Region 3-AA title last Friday, Laney continued its momentum this week by scoring touchdowns on five of its
six possessions during the first half.

WHY HARLEM LOST: It struggled to move the ball on Laney’s defense, which has shut out each of its past three opponents.

QUOTABLE: “I couldn’t be more proud of this senior class and all they’ve done to make this a championship season. We’ve battled through a lot of injuries, but the leadership of these seniors has been tremendous all year. We have a lot of momentum right now, so hopefully we can keep building on that for the playoffs next week.” – Laney head coach Lemuel Lackey

NEXT: Laney (8-2, 6-0) plays host to an opening-round game in the Class AA state playoffs Friday.
