ST. JOSEPH, La. — The last time Delta Charter School’s football team knew what a win felt like was back on Sept. 7 in the Storm’s less-than-one-quarter 27-0 win at Lincoln Preparatory School that was called due to inclement weather.

For head coach Blake Wheeler, that seemed like an eternity as Delta Charter embarked on a four-game losing streak, three of those losses at home. The Storm finally got win No. 2 of the 2018 season on Friday night after taking care of the Tensas High School Panthers on the road 40-12 in an LHSAA District 2-1A game.

Delhi High 48, Sicily Island 19

SICILY ISLAND — Tyreke Tolliver’s 171 rushing yards and two touchdowns were not nearly enough for Sicily Island High School as the Tigers lost to the Delhi High School Bears, one of the best teams in LHSAA Class 1A, 48-19 Friday night in a District 2-1A game.

Tolliver’s 80-yard touchdown run and Zavier Ramirez’s extra point was the highlight for Sicily Island in the first half. That made it 8-7 in Delhi’s favor at the end of the first quarter. The Bears scored two touchdowns with successful two-point conversions after each score to give them a 24-7 halftime advantage.

Tyrell Jordan scored on a one-yard run for the Tigers in the third quarter, but they found themselves down 32-13 at quarter’s end. Tolliver scored on a four-yard run in the fourth quarter, but Delhi (6-1, 3-1) had another pair of TDs and two-point conversions.

Maurice Humphries led the Tigers’ defense with 20 tackles while Claven Dubnar had 15 tackles. Jamonte Jordan and Landrae James had 13 and 11 tackles, respectively, and Ramirez had 10 tackles and two sacks.
