Lightning and future inclement weather caused the game between South Beauregard and Leesville to be called before a quarter of football was even played.

After two hours of the lightning delays, the administrations for both schools declared it a complete game, giving the Wampus Cats a 13-0 win.

"We were looking at three-hour lightning delay, and both school's just made the decision because it looked like we wouldn't get started until 10:15. When we walked over at 9:15, we had another lightning strike that added another 30 minutes.

"We're still young on defense, and we're still trying to figure out our run fits and our timing. It's not what we wanted but we tell the kids all that time that it's not about what you want, it's about what you get."

Leesville scored on its first drive of the game on a 5-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Jacob Mount to tight end Noah Allain to take a 6-0 lead after the mixed extra point.

South Beauregard took the ensuing kick down to the 16-yard line and threatened to score, but a fumble deep in Leesville territory ended the drive.

With 7:04 left in the first quarter, running back Jalen Shepherd broke off a 42-yard touchdown run to push the lead to 12-0.

"I thought our kids were focused and ready to play," Causey said. "They came out and changed their offense. They came out in a wing-T look and gave us a chance to adjust."

After the extra point, the refs sent the players to the locker room for the lightning delay, and it would not restart.

The Knights fall to 0-2 on the year, while the Wampus Cats move to 2-0 in the young season.
