Despite holding the Tors to just 13 points in the first half and forcing three fumbles, the Leesville Wampus Cats (0-4) couldn't hold back the Sulphur (2-2) offense, falling to the Tors, 36-0, on Friday night.

Despite holding the Tors to just 13 points in the first half and forcing three fumbles, the Leesville Wampus Cats (0-4) couldn't hold back the Sulphur (2-2) offense, falling to the Tors, 36-0, on Friday night.
"Our defense did not play bad," Adams said. "They played well in the first half."
The defense allowed two rushing touchdowns to Brian Walker in the first half, but also forced three fumbles, all within the red zone. Two of those fumbles were recovered by the Wampus Cats, but the other one turned into a touchdown for the Tors.
In the second half, however, the Tors exploded for 23 points — including 14 points within the first 10 minutes of the half — to pull away from the Wampus Cats.
"I think we just kind of tightened things up, changed what we tried to do," Sulphur head coach Howard Fusilier said. "We went more ground oriented instead of throwing the ball so much in the second half, and I think that paid off for us."
Leesville totaled just 106 yards of offense, including 68 passing yards from quarterback Kory Jones. The Wampus Cats also turned the ball over four times, including two fumbles and two interceptions. Adams credited the offense struggles to a lack of execution, saying that it's "hard to execute" when numerous offensive starters are out with injuries.
"We just need to get everyone back, and hopefully by the first district game, we'll have everyone back," Adams said, citing injuries on the offensive line and to his starting quarterback, Jatorrey Smith.  
He did compliment the young offensive linemen, including Conner Lafort and C.J. Archelle, for a job well done, and also credited the coaches for preparing the line.
"The young guys being in there...I thought they (the coaches) did a good job getting them ready," he said.
Leesville was led by Divontez Winters' 28 rushing yards on 11 carries. Kory Jones was 9-149 for 68 yards and two interceptions, and Kole Smith had five catches for 36 yards.
Walked led all rushers with 190 yards on 32 carries, and Kilo Fradieu had 23 yards and a score. Breaux threw for 216 yards — 139 of those to Thomas Breaux — and a touchdown, throwing no interceptions. Thomas Breaux caught six passes, one for a touchdown, and Fradieu caught five.
Leesville continues its homestand with a matchup against Washington-Marion (3-1) on Friday. Sulphur enters district play next week with a road game against Acadiana (3-1).
