After the halftime break, running back Melvin McClay worked his magic on a 20-yard rushing touchdown, punctuated by a Alheiidari PAT. The score improved in the Green Devils’ favor to 17-0.
Later in the third quarter, Hebert Thomas scored with a 1-yard punch through the Trojan defense for another six points and again, another Alheiidari point after to improve the Plaquemine score to 24-0.
