Laney loses



Powerful Booker T. Washington spoiled Eric Parker's debut as Laney coach on Friday, blanking the Wildcats at ARC Stadium.

Antonio Jones and Baldo Gaither both scored two touchdowns to lead Washington.

On defense, Laney linebacker Kirk Stephens had 12 tackles and a fumble recovery while teammate Bryan Smith, a defensive back, had 10 tackles.

"I thought we'd be better on offense, but we're young," Parker said.
