Prep football round up: Wilkinson County Christian Academy stays undefeated

FARMERVILLE, La. — The Wilkinson County Christian Academy Rams remained undefeated this season as they took care of the Union Christian Academy Lions 38-18 Friday night.

WCCA jumped out to a 12-0 lead in the first quarter thanks to touchdown passes of 79 yards to Fisher and 56 yards to Anderson. The only thing that went wrong for the Rams was the conversions — whether it be extra points or going for two.

Ben Sessions missed two extra points and two more blocked by Union Christian. That was the only thing Lions could do right until late in the third quarter.

The Rams added to their lead in the second quarter on touchdown passes by Andrew Sessions of 53 yards to Anderson and 50 yards to Bailey to go up 24-0 at halftime. Bailey scored on touchdown runs of 14 and 20 yards in the third quarter. They finally were successful on a two-point conversion after Bailey’s second TD run when Jack Orgeron ran it in to give them a 38-8 lead.

The Lions got on the scoreboard on a 22-yard run by Cross Talley at the 2:06 mark of the third quarter and scored a couple of touchdowns late in the fourth quarter.

Bailey had six carries for 106 yards and two touchdown runs to lead WCCA’s ground game. The Rams’ defense held the Lions (0-4) to 154 yards of total offense. Bailey had nine tackles and one sack while RJ Fisher had eight tackles, Ryan Fisher had six tackles, and Reggie Mattire had five tackles.

WCCA (4-0) plays host to Prairie View Academy next Friday with kickoff at 7 p.m.
