Facing Fullington Academy, Lafayette Christian broke open a close game in the third quarter on the way to a 42-0 victory.

Leading 14-0 at the half, the Cougars scored four touchdowns in the third quarter to put it away.

While the offense turned it up a notch in the third quarter, the defensive effort was there from the get-go.
