The Lafayette Christian School Cougars ended their losing streak in emphatic fashion.

After dropping their previous three games, the Cougars traveled to Shiloh Hills Christian in Kennesaw on Friday and breezed to a 56-0 victory.

“We came out and played a really physical game,” Lafayette Christian head coach Nate Shaw said.

While it wasn’t a region game, it allowed the Cougars to regain some of the momentum they had when they won their first three games of the season.

Antavious Sands, Jemi Reed and Eli Shepherd each had touchdown runs for the Cougars, and Reed also had a 65-yard punt return for a score.

Quarterback Landon Whitley added a touchdown run, and he threw a scoring pass to Morgan Channell.

Jess Hill added an interception return for a touchdown during the blowout victory.

The Cougars are 0-1 in the region, and they’ll likely have to win their final two region games to qualify for the Georgia Independent Christian Athletic Association state playoffs.

First up will be Friday’s region game at Cross Pointe Christian Academy, and after a week off, Lafayette Christian will host Holy Ground on Oct. 23 in its final region game.
